Stetson University Description:

Stetson University has four campuses in Florida, but the main undergraduate campus is in DeLand Florida, west of Daytona Beach. Founded in 1883, the university has a rich history and the DeLand campus is on the National Register of Historic Places. The university has an 11 to 1 student / faculty ratio, and students can choose from 60 majors and minors. Business fields are the most popular among undergraduates, but Stetson's strengths in the liberal arts and sciences earned the school a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. On the athletic front, the Stetson Hatters compete in the NCAA Division I Atlantic Sun Conference.

Stetson University Mission Statement:

mission statement from http://www.stetson.edu/other/about/index.php

"Stetson University's mission is to provide an excellent education in a creative community where learning and values meet, and to foster in students the qualities of mind and heart that will prepare them to reach their full potential as informed citizens of local communities and the world.

At Stetson, the art of teaching is practiced through programs solidly grounded in a tradition of liberal learning that stimulates critical thinking, imaginative inquiry, creative expression, and lively intellectual debate. The art of learning is enhanced through small interactive classes and close student-faculty alliances. Collaborative approaches also provide the foundation for rewarding careers and advanced study in selective graduate and professional programs. We embrace diverse methodologies that foster effective communication, information and technological literacy, and aesthetic appreciation.

We encourage the development of informed convictions, independent judgment, and lifelong commitments to learning-characteristic features of an enlightened citizen. In bringing together learning and values, the University encourages all of its members to demonstrate personal integrity; develop an appreciation for the spiritual dimension of life; embrace leadership in an increasingly complex, interdependent, and technological world; and commit to active forms of social responsibility.
