The College Promise
The College Promise is extended to each student as they take up our institutional motto “Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve”. This promise is audacious, challenging and demanding. The world requires nothing less. Grounded in three overlapping principles, the College Promise reinforces the distinctiveness of our academic community and our shared values.
We promise a creative education that fully integrates the best of our intellectual traditions with the latest innovations in knowledge to fully prepare each student for life in a global society.
We promise a collaborative learning community networked together to advance the holistic development of each student so that they may reach the fullness of their potential.
We promise a committed faculty dedicated to the highest standards of teaching, scholarship, and service in the interests of advancing academic excellence and student academic success.
Education is not a question of mechanics; it is rather a question of ethics and morality. Education is primarily an effort to realize in man his possibilities as a thinking and feeling being.
