Accordingly, we seek to maintain an environment dedicated to educating a diverse, multi-cultural student population. To our regional community we represent a recognized talent pool of faculty and student resources.
- Teaching institution. We are dedicated to providing an educational environment focused on student learning and delivered by qualified faculty. We enrich our teaching and lifelong learning through applied and pedagogical research. We continuously improve our student learning through ongoing assessment efforts.
- Professional business education. We offer one undergraduate degree as the main academic program and several relatively small yet well-respected masters degrees. We pursue overall high quality, relevance, currency, and convenience in the creation and continual improvement of our professional business programs.
- Knowledge and skills to succeed in their business careers and in society. We provide our students with the professional knowledge and managerial skills to formulate, evaluate, select, and implement appropriate courses of action in the workplace. We also encourage in our students a sense of ethics/social responsibility.
