James Madison University


Named after the fourth president and father of the U.S. Constitution,
JMU continues to embrace the same principles of leadership and the
pursuit of knowledge that James Madison championed while founding
the USA. “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” James Madison, the fourth President of the United States of America

James Madison University is a model of the Engaged University—
broadly involved with ideas, our community, and with the world.
Named after the Father of the U.S. Constitution and a great
statesman, our university is delighted to welcome international
students and is committed to making you feel at home ”
