The mission of the university is the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice. The history department makes a significant contribution to this mission. The study of history is at the heart of a liberal education. The history program is expected to make a significant contribution to students’ appreciation and understanding of the social, cultural, intellectual, and religious tradition of the university. Through a wide variety of course offerings it intends to illuminate the historical roots of the local, national, and global context of our multicultural community. An ongoing commitment to quality teaching is a major responsibility of each faculty member. Teaching means to share a love of learning, to stir the imagination of the students, and to broaden their minds. Students will be encouraged to develop the intellectual discipline to make judgments about the past based upon an accurate command of the pertinent evidence. Exit interviews and alumni comments have demonstrated that history faculty members have developed an excellent reputation as a community of outstanding teachers and productive scholars.
