Organizations across today’s global economy are faced with a complex set of challenges and must establish a culture of change and innovation if they are to thrive in today’s ever changing world. Students majoring in business, information systems or human services will be given the knowledge necessary to compete for career opportunities in a vast array of public and private organizations.
Our faculty members are subject-matter experts in their chosen fields with solid academic and professional backgrounds. The faculty utilize a variety of learning techniques with the intent of melding theory with practice so that our students not only have the knowledge base necessary to compete in today’s economy but they also understand how to apply that knowledge base to address real world problems and issues. In April of 2016 the College was named after benefactor Stephen Poorman whose gift of over 7 million dollars was the largest in the history of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.
“We pride ourselves on providing our students with a learning environment that focuses on the practical applications of acquired knowledge. As such, many of our programs rely heavily on experiential learning,” says Dr. Stephen Neun, Dean.
