Our Vision

We seek collaborative partnerships with students, faculty and staff, and in our community to engage students in integrated learning and development. Our programs are designed to increase students' capacities and aspirations to achieve intellectual, social, and personal growth thereby providing them a comparative advantage among college graduates. Our students are purposefully engaged in their out of class educational opportunities, initiate a number of the learning experiences that enrich the intellectual life of the campus, and promote a campus environment supportive of learning.
