Who We Are

Acohesive group of educators who believe in the concepts of humanistic philosophy and who acknowledge the individual’s capacity for choice, responsibility, and spiritual insight.

Our awareness of the relationship between mind, body, and spirit forms the basis for a socially, culturally, and environmentally relevant educational process and experience which we call “Integrative Studies.”

Our faculty is committed to providing a socially relevant and highly practical experience for students so that they may begin their career well prepared with the most current theoretical and practical knowledge available.

Our students bring a commitment to their growth and personal expansion so that they may make a difference in their professions and a genuine contribution to the world.
