Our students are future teachers and school counselors. Future therapists and criminologists. They’re pursuing a diversity of studies, but they all share a drive to make the world a better place. We provide an outlet for that goal, with rigorous offerings that not only include a robust academic core but see service-learning and hands-on experiences as central to ensuring students are prepared to meet big challenges in their communities head-on.
