Our undergraduate and graduate curricula are designed to provide students with the content knowledge and skills needed to achieve success throughout their careers and lives.

Our College Culture Statements

We consider students first in everything we do.
Students are our number one priority. We care deeply about their success and work with them with a high level of integrity and passion.

We provide engaging experiences.
Students receive exceptional instruction from faculty, and also have numerous opportunities to participate in activities and interact with faculty and staff outside of class. These experiences, which include internships, international study, and community service, are all part of our focused and integrated learning environment.

We model life-long learning.
Our faculty transfers its spirit of inquiry to students by sharing their research with them. Our faculty and staff consistently work to improve what they do and how they do it, and serve as examples of professional development.

We nurture and value relationships.
The business and alumni connections we have provide ideas and motivation to help us all do an excellent job for our students. They also provide advice to help us stay current with our fields, anticipate future professional needs and provide resources that serve our students well.

We respect the value of diverse perspectives.
We recognize the richness that a respectful and inclusive environment brings to our college.

We care about and support our colleagues.
When you come to our university and college you become part of a community. We support each other during difficult times and celebrate with each other during good times.
