Philosophy

Human dignity, health, and safety are three of an individual's most prized possessions and, as such, should be protected. The professional programs offered in this college were founded in response to the needs of individuals. The education of students in this college embraces knowledge from diverse sources, including a liberal education. Students graduating from this college should be prepared to examine their roles and modify practice in response to new information. They should be able to act as catalysts in initiating and implementing new patterns of practice aimed at bettering the human condition. For these reasons, education is directed toward inspiring and developing problem-solving and creative capabilities in students. Additionally, pre-professional and professional education must be regarded as preparation for a lifetime of continued learning, which enhances the process of self-actualization for the individual.
