Our faculty and staff strive to develop an awareness in all our students of our collective responsibility in creating and maintaining a fair and ethical society. We work on the principle that the failure to provide opportunity for all is illogical and that philosophy is a practical discipline, providing us all with the tools to understand our humanity and to prosper as productive human beings.
