English Department Mission Statement
By pursuing three main goals, we strive to create students who will thrive in college and beyond. First, we seek to develop critical thinking skills required for students to understand and evaluate fiction and nonfiction. Second, we seek to enable all students to write clearly, analytically and creatively. Third, we seek to develop students’ values by synthesizing course content with students’ experiences using Ignatian pedagogy (context, experience, reflection, action and evaluation). By achieving these goals, students are prepared to become intellectual, independent and just leaders for our community.
