Western State promotes intellectual maturity and personal growth in its students and graduates citizens prepared to assume constructive roles in local- national- and global communities. Western helps its students to develop the skills and commitments needed to continue learning for the rest of their lives and strives to unifying academic domains which have traditionally existed separately: the sciences- the liberal arts- and professional programs. The College provides students with a solid foundation of skills in written and spoken communication- problem solving- critical thinking- and creativity. Programs encourage a breadth and depth of knowledge- which will serve as a foundation for a professional career or graduate study- and an appreciation of values appropriate to a liberally educated individual.
