  • Cultivate a climate that “seeds and encourages” growth in academics, research, social, community, and spiritual areas.
  • Support experiential learning and research to empower our students to develop an independent mind-set that will set them apart as leaders in their field to solve health, environmental, and global issues.
  • Enhance our community on personal and global levels through measured initiatives that will teach and develop health care professionals, scientists, teachers and mentors of the future.
