In the classroom, you'll find that both challenges and opportunities abound. Instructors and fellow classmates will provoke thought, debate, and self-analysis. Outside of the classroom, we support the whole student, with access to career advising, peer tutoring and coaching, and a holistic adviser assigned to each student.
