Mission Statement

The Office of Professional and Graduate Studies is the College’s entrepreneurial arm. Its programs are consistent with the College’s Mission, extensions of strengths in the Undergraduate College, and contribute positively to the College’s net income. It offers academically excellent undergraduate, graduate, and not-for-credit programs to adult students seeking credentials for professional advancement.

Through the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies programs, the College calls professional and graduate students to extend education beyond knowledge, skills, and preparation for work. In the spirit of Vincent de Paul and Elizabeth Ann Seton, the College fosters an understanding of our common humanity, a commitment to human dignity, and a full appreciation of our obligations to each other.
