Featured here, under The Lamp of Learning title, are some images and expressions of our purpose gathered by the University Archives and Museum from our past for this post on the Museum blog.
The difference in mission between college education and vocational training is to both educate the student for tomorrow while also preparing the student for life; for whatever is there beyond the horizon, the graduate equipped for that which we can’t yet see today. We make explorers and pathfinders! Our students are seekers who respond to the invitation of self-discovery and knowledge that higher education promises. Our community is itself a promise.
