Organizations throughout Pennsylvania and the 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 our rapidly changing world. In addition, as society ages and we face complex individual, social, environmental and infrastructural challenges, students of today have more opportunities than ever to make a difference to the human condition.

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 programs include courses and majors in business administration, accounting, entrepreneurship, international business, computer science, cybersecurity, recreation administration, sport administration, coaching, sport psychology, tourism and event management, nutrition, criminal justice, global crime and terrorism, social work, mental health counselling, human behavior, wellness, social policy, grief and loss counseling and many more exciting and cutting-edge courses and programs that lead to rewarding careers.

You will know your professors and they will know you! Our class sizes are small compared to many other options and you can get the personalized attention rarely available in universities today.

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 with a clear focus on student success.

In April of 2016 the College was named after benefactor Stephen Poorman whose gift of over $7 million was the largest in the history of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.
