Stetson University provides an inspiring education that engages students with rigorous academic and creative study grounded in liberal learning.  Working closely with faculty, staff, and with one another, students cultivate abilities to explore issues deeply, think critically, reason empirically, speak persuasively, and connect ideas creatively.  Stetson’s academic program prepares and inspires students to dare to be significant™, realizing 21st century learning goals that will foster their ability and commitment to make a difference in the world.  We seek faculty who themselves dare to be significant; think across disciplinary, methodological, and social boundaries; exercise pedagogical creativity and adaptability (including the use of technology to enrich and extend learning); and are passionate lifelong learners. 

Stetson values the development of the whole person committed to engaging and building lifelong connections with the larger world through Personal Growth, Intellectual Development, and Global Citizenship. To that end, the University fosters policies, practices, and modes of inquiry to support and explore these values areas, integrated in a University-wide commitment to personal and social responsibility.  Firmly committed to inclusive excellence, our vibrant community of teacher-scholars nurtures the potential of individual students to lead lives of significance and prepares each to meet the challenges of shaping the future—locally, nationally, and globally.
