As faculty and staff, we endeavor to help our constituents -- students, the larger university community, alumni, and professional colleagues -- to develop as critical, reflective thinkers who are capable and willing to exercise leadership in advancing the cause of human good in the world.
We pursue this goal by providing learning-teaching environments, which nurture, strengthen, and sustain creative intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, and technical abilities and interests.
We encourage and support innovative scholarship and research.
We strive for excellence in teaching, advising, and mentoring.
We actively engage in community service, linking the School and its resources to local, national, and international communities to eliminate ignorance, poverty, injustice, hunger, and the forces that perpetuate these social ills.
