ENGAGED LEARNING
Centre students are actively involved in their education. Just
how involved? In the most recent National Survey of Student
Engagement (NSSE), Centre exceeded the national average in
all of NSSE’s four key measures: academic challenge, student
interactions with faculty, learning with peers, and campus
environment.
Centre particularly excels in enriching educational experiences
according to the NSSE report. For example, 71 percent of
students had participated in some form of internship, co-op, field
experience, student teaching, or clinical placement. Eighty-two
percent of seniors reported studying abroad, and 88 percent of
seniors reported doing community service or volunteer work.
WHY LIBERAL ARTS?
At Centre we believe in the power of learning to transform
and enlighten lives. Our seal says it all: Doctrina Lux Mentis
(“Learning is the Light of the Mind”).
The Centre Commitment
Centre prepares students for
real-world success in a timely
manner. And we back our
pledge with a guarantee.
All students who meet the
College’s academic and social
expectations and are enrolled
for four consecutive academic
years will:
• study abroad,
• have an internship or
research opportunity, and
• graduate in four years,
or Centre will provide up to an
additional year of study tuition-
free.
