Radford University (RU) is a medium-size public, state-funded university in the City of Radford, in Southwestern Virginia, founded in 1910 as a women's college and coeducational since 1972. It was granted university status by the Virginia legislature in 1979. Radford offers liberal arts curricula for undergraduates, along with numerous graduate programs at the master's degree level, including the M.F.A. and M.B.A.; it plans to offer its first doctoral program in the fall of 2008, in counseling psychology. RU was the first educational institution in Virginia to integrate wireless technology campus wide, an indicator of its commitment to staying up-to-date and offering its students the best possible learning environment. On August 23, 2007, the Radford University Board of Visitors approved the University’s Strategic Plan, dubbed "7-17, Forging a Bold New Future." The plan will serve as a blueprint for establishing Radford University as one of the top 50 Masters universities in the nation by 2017.
