Our Mission

Our mission is to provide students with a set of courses that will enable them to develop a broader perspective and a deeper understanding of their community and the world, as well as examine their assumptions, biases, and preconceptions about the world and its inhabitants. Our aim is to help students develop both as individuals and as active citizens by learning how to contextualize, think critically, and communicate effectively.
