Creating Educational Distinction

One of the priorities of Vision 2015 is to offer students a high-quality and distinctive curriculum that integrates the deep learning of the liberal arts with career, community engagement, and cross-cultural experiences to enable our graduates to achieve personal and professional success in a global society.

In this video, Brian Penney, Ph.D., a marine ecologist and professor of biology, discusses the importance of a liberal arts education to the sciences, specifically the foundation it provides for critical thinking and understanding the natural world around us.
