Drawing upon traditions that are instilled in the College by our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph, the mission statement seeks to present the institution as a community where students are challenged to become socially responsive and intellectually engaged citizens of the 21st century. believes that the liberal arts core provides the foundation to achieve these outcomes, and in so doing, seeks to provide excellent classroom instruction across all disciplines.
