Common to everyone on an academic campus, our mission is to support the growth and development of our students. We have many diverse ways to assist our students while they are on campus and beyond. While we believe there are foundational and traditional methods for fostering informed, contributing citizens, there are also innovative, emerging strategies to connect with our learners.
At our Faculty Center we endeavor to create collegial partnerships across multiple levels and disciplines. Historically, many institutions have created artificial internal boundaries between departments, which, although not intended to affect our students, at times can limit the type of programs we are able to offer. The purpose of this Faculty Center is to create a broad definition to teaching and learning, from academics to co-curricular engagement. Our vision is to develop an international Center, capitalizing on our unique environment and bringing people interested in helping our students together to connect them in areas important to everyone, including retention, graduation rate, and college/career readiness.
