We will be at the forefront of interdisciplinary studies in the humanities in the CSU; a college that offers critical and creative activities that challenge the mind while instilling a sense of cultural and political responsibility to local communities as well as sensitivity to change in a global society.
We empower students to be proactive, self-sufficient, and motivated to succeed in their own educational and professional goals in a supportive, engaging, and well informed environment.
We offer a high-quality education to our students, as we honor the diversity of all learners, advocate for educational and community reforms, develop reflective practices that promote equity, and facilitate the maximum learning and achievement potential of all children and adults.
We embody the principle that all of us, students, faculty and staff, will Commit to Excellence and Engage with Community. We encourage students to work together and to seek out and utilize all the resources on campus, and faculty and staff to work together to implement the most effective practices for student learning. Faculty and students together conduct the advanced research needed to turn the world’s dreams into reality.
We are committed to educating and preparing human service professionals to become innovative practitioners and leaders. We promote the integration of teaching, research, policy, and public service in an interdisciplinary context. Knowledge, skill, and caring provide the foundation for educating a diverse workforce of the future who effectively serves multicultural urban communities.
We will help our students find meaning in their life while accessing all that higher education has to offer. We will assist students in making significant decisions about their future and help them achieve their maximum potential.
The Honors College offers outstanding students an interdisciplinary curriculum and the opportunity to participate in a scholarly community dedicated to inquiry and discovery, creative and critical thinking, and the creation of knowledge that will have a positive impact on society.
We, in a supportive environment, empower all students to take ownership of their education through comprehensive academic advising while assisting them to determine their own success at the university as an engaged student, active learner, and self-advocate.
