A Cheyney University student should be proud. They should demonstrate a scholar at their best. While being higly educated and knowing the history of their school. This should be a motivation for all students. When you get your education at cheyney you can bring all you know back to your community leaving them with a positive attitude of being black and attending an(Historically Black College/University)HBCU.

One of the unique things about the main campus is that while it's convenient to Wilmington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and New York, it's also nestled in a rural pocket on land representative of a variety of ecosystems. These include the Cheyney Wetlands, which has an important historical as well as environmental significance, as a testament to the ingenuity and efficiency of the Underground Railroad. In an age where it is possible for young people to grow up completely divorced from their surroundings, largely unaware of nature except as the force behind hurricanes and the dangers of extreme weather, it's important to provide opportunities for experiencing and learning about the ways in which we are connected to and benefit from the ecology of place.

One of many core values that is suported by the comprehensive work of the faculty is the cultivation of reasoned judgment. Students need to hav superior skills in using research from valid and reliable sources to gain data as they frame their opinions, processes and decisions. Students can learn at Cheyney how to do their own research and how to evaluate the positions and research of others. With these skills our community will not be spun by "spin" and "sound bites.". Staying positive and informed.
