Vision for the School of Arts & Science

The School of Arts & Science supports the mission of Iona College through its commitment to fostering academic excellence and intellectual inquiry rooted in life-long learning and professional success. Our faculty are a caring community of teacher-scholars, committed to the success of our students inside and outside the classroom. The School offers a diverse set of programs that are academically challenging with a career focus.

In furtherance of these commitments, the School strives to:

  • provide an education that is current, student-centered, outcome-based, and involves an appropriate mix of classroom-based instruction, independent research, and internship or practical experience;
  • equip students with the skills necessary for success in a rapidly changing environment: critical thinking, effective oral and written communication, problem solving, collaborative learning, ethical decision making, scientific, technological and aesthetic literacy;
  • instill in students the habits of mind enabling them to possess our most precious human heritage: those ideas, beliefs, writings, and creative expressions that are the basis of intellectual, cultural, and moral development;
  • deepen students’ self-awareness, reflectiveness, and commitment to a core of values that will illuminate both their personal relationships and their relationship to a pluralistic society with the qualities of intelligence, tolerance, decency, compassion, and appreciation of cultures others than their own;
  • recruit, retain, and support the development of a faculty of exceptional teacher-scholars whose pedagogy is informed by research, experience, and scholarship.
