In order to successfully meet the complex challenges facing society today, Centre provides students with the creative thinking skills needed to develop effective and innovative approaches.

1. Centre College will support and enhance a campus culture that values and practices creative thinking.
2. Centre College students will develop and understand the habits and skills needed to improve their own process of creative thinking.
3. Centre College students will be able to engage effectively, both individually and collaboratively, with complex challenges.
MISSION STATEMENT: Centre’s mission is to prepare students for lives of learning, leadership, and service.
