Challenging, practical liberal arts education
Assistant Professor / Program Coordinator of Philosophy
I see the goal of higher education as leading to the preparation of an engaged citizen—one who participates in the affairs of one's community and society by combining intellectual knowledge with practical needs.
Southern Oregon University is committed to
- a challenging and practical liberal arts education centered on student learning, accessibility, and civic engagement;
- academic programs, partnerships, public service, outreach, sustainable practices, and economic development activities that address regional needs such as health and human services, business, and education; and
- outstanding programs that draw on and enrich our unique arts community and bioregion.
