The value of a Stetson education is reflected in

  • a foundation in writing, speaking, reasoning and critical thinking that provides a springboard for an exceptional education in a major, field, or discipline;
  • individualized experiences with extraordinary faculty, who mentor each student through individual advising; small, interactive classes; engaged learning in and beyond the classroom; and collaborative learning that culminates in a senior-year capstone experience to prepare each student for professional life after Stetson;
  • a transformative experience that includes expert disciplinary learning, shaped through a curriculum and community that encourages civic responsibility, ethical reasoning, global citizenship, inclusion and equity;
  • a community that values every individual, providing excellent academic and support services to ensure that all students have the opportunity to realize their academic, professional, and personal potential;
  • more than a century of preparing successful graduates who gain acceptance into top-tier graduate and professional programs, pursue meaningful careers, and are prepared to lead in a 21st Century world.
