The college’s faculty prepares our students well, and our outcomes are consistently exceptional. Our graduates possess strong clinical skills and obtain positions in their disciplines across the country. Virtually all of our graduates pass their national credentialing examination and work in their chosen field of employment. Our highly involved faculty routinely receive national recognition for excellence in teaching, professional service, clinical practice and scholarship. In a December 2014 survey, 90% of the students responding stated that “Faculty who care about students” was the greatest strength of the college. A survey conducted earlier that year found that more than 85% of our students were “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the College and with the quality of instruction they receive.
