Mission Statement

English Department Mission Statement

By teaching students how to read critically and write effectively, by providing students with a foundation of literary knowledge, and by creating an environment that fosters the intellectual and pedagogical advancement of faculty, the English department seeks to engender a community of learners that is curious, engaged, and sufficiently skilled as academic and creative writers, as critical thinkers, and as analytical readers of literature, to achieve academic success. Serving the needs of students pursuing degree completion or transfer to a career technical program or four-year university, we provide instruction in traditional classroom settings as well as online courses and encourage lifelong learning in the achievement of students' personal and professional goals.
