At our core, our unmoving center, is our mission: to provide to the students of our region, sate and nation an undergraduate liberal arts education of uncompromising rigor and excellence in the public sector. Forty-four years ago, that was what our founders envisioned for our campus, and we have been unswerving in pursuing that ambitious goal. That single-minded and unchanging sharp focus, I would suggest, has been central to our success. Rather than the distraction of trying to become "all things for all people," we have consistently worked together to do better and better the single things that we all agree we should be doing.
