The advancement of computers and communication technology continues to have a profound impact on our lives, and the workplace needs technically competent people to provide appropriate computing solutions for users. Curricula in the School of Information Technology teach problem solving, critical thinking, communication and teamwork skills. Most IT programs taught in residence offer practical applications of classroom theory in a lab environment, where students are encouraged to apply their classroom instruction.

Our strong reputation is largely due to our talented and caring faculty, most who are doctorally prepared and/or certified within their specialties. The mission of the School of Nursing is to prepare professional nurses for lives of significance and service through baccalaureate and graduate education. The educational philosophy of the School of Nursing values the whole person, and encompasses beliefs about persons, health, environment, and community that are based on the uniqueness of the university’s mission as urban, multicultural, and Christian

Construction is nearing completion on the first of 3 five-story academic buildings that will form the core of the medical campus.
