Vision, Mission, & Core Values
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
We inspire individuals to pursue lives of meaning and purpose.
WHAT WE DO
We provide students with a world-class liberal arts education that stimulates intellect, ignites passion, and shapes character.
IDEALS WE LIVE BY
We act with integrity in our work, in our choices, and in our relationships. We aspire to the liberal arts ideal of wholeness, where honest self-examination makes possible integrated self-understanding.
We embrace elevated standards of knowledge, performance, and character. We strive for excellence in everything we do, starting with excellence of effort.
We prize curiosity. We cultivate and celebrate the desire to know, to do, to question, to re-examine, and to improve.
Our commitment to responsibility starts with our individual lives and actions and extends outward in service to communities, both local and global.
We learn best in a caring environment, where respect and inclusion make possible the deepest forms of intellectual, emotional, and character growth.
