As an undergraduate school embedded within a teaching institution, the School of Business will become primarily recognized for providing a high quality, technologically-linked business education in a student-oriented learning environment. We will serve mostly regional students in a small class setting that encourages interaction.
We recognize that faculty responsibilities extend beyond teaching into research and service. In terms of research, and as an integral part of their responsibilities, our faculty will produce quality intellectual contributions that focus primarily on business practice and learning/pedagogy.
Our school outreach efforts will center primarily on supporting regional economic development efforts: however, we will also encourage faculty service in the form of membership and participation in professional, service, and university and regional organizations as an important part of continued professional development.
