The approach has enhanced the undergraduate experience with compatible intellectual and artistic ventures at our Hudson Valley campus and at affiliated institutions around the world. We seek to provide a challenging academic program, a supportive environment that fosters a collaborative exchange of ideas inside and outside the classroom, and access to world-class scholarship and research.
