Vision and Mission



All undergraduates become mindful citizens with a commitment to self, others, community, and place.


Through collaboration and innovation the Office of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) offers students transformative opportunities to become lifelong learners and interconnected citizens.

  • We promote collaboration and innovation, bringing together students, educators, and community partners in the development of unique initiatives, curriculum, and pedagogy.


  • Students experience transformative opportunities, resulting from a challenging and richly diverse environment that provides university experiences, which build on and enrich the classroom experience.


  • Students develop into lifelong learners, approaching their personal, social, and scholarly worlds with a spirit of inquiry founded in liberal education, which cultivates skills vital for success.


  • As interconnected citizens, students practice and promote community building and engagement, fostering their commitment to social responsibility, sustainability, and understanding of social and ecological interdependence.
