We Teach. At the heart of the educational experience is the concept of learning-centered instruction. The classroom is a blend of theory and application where an instructor delivers theory and then works with students as they apply that theory. Students often collaborate as members of a team on a particular project. Instructors provide guidance and encouragement and model particular approaches to execute on the project and to underscore the theory in action.
We Practice. The faculty is comprised of outstanding artists, designers, chefs and others with expertise in our fields of study. The college provides the opportunity for these accomplished artists to bring their experiences from the world of work to the classroom and to work with students as they advance their skills and knowledge. We support and encourage our faculty to continue to practice professionally and to bring that experience to the classroom.
We Grow Professionally. We recognize that our most important resource is the people, especially our faculty, who work at our campuses. The college provides opportunity for professional development such as advanced study, regular in-service professional development, instructional development, and executive development so that we maintain an excellent workforce that is prepared for continuing growth of our fields of study and of the organization.
