We believe the best learning experiences are built on three things: a commitment to academic excellence, strong personal relationships and the pursuit of a shared purpose.
Simply put, it makes living and learning here feel like a private school experience at a public school cost. Each of our colleges and schools offers distinctive programs and pathways to a rewarding life after college. Our students come to campus with a will to succeed and leave transformed and ready to pursue lives of purpose and meaning.
I get to teach and talk about public health every day. Whether talking to teenagers about mental health, helping my students plan out a campus health activity or sharing lessons learned with fellow practitioners, it is all making a difference.
Counseling is a profession that allows individuals to experience change based on their stage of readiness. A tremendous amount of joy is exhibited when individuals reach their goals and achieve a sense of wholeness.
What brings me the most joy and pride is seeing and hearing about the successes of our students. Whether it is starting their own businesses, being successful in graduate school, or receiving an industry award, their success always reminds me of the reason I was called to this profession.
We believe in the value of an immersive international experience.
Not only do we offer an education that enables you to succeed in an increasingly global world, we'll help you see the world for yourself.
