Preparing Our Students for Lives
of Meaning and Purpose

We will promote a developmental approach to education and student life that strives to build in our students a deep sense of personal and community responsibility, and prepares them to be successful and productive members of society.

What it includes:

  • Facilitating student wellness initiatives, including fitness and alcohol and drug education
  • Developing comprehensive career counseling services, including expanded internships and mentoring opportunities
  • Expanding career services to include MBA and other graduate students, as well as creating a comprehensive post-graduate career services program
  • Providing a wide variety of service/outreach and service-learning opportunities in the local community
  • Fostering a mission-driven, student-centered varsity athletics program
  • Expanding athletic scholarship opportunities, recruiting premier coaches, and constructing/renovating facilities

How we’ll know we’ve succeeded:

When PC has a holistic approach to student development that reflects unity of mind, body, and spirit; when we have solidified a thriving program of student and career services; when we have developed key alliances with government and community leaders for the purposes of civic engagement and service; and when we have a highly-respected student- and mission-centered varsity athletics program in which each student-athlete can reach his or her full academic, athletic, and human potential.
