There are six comprehensive state colleges that integrate liberal arts and sciences programs with professional education, and three of them are specialized colleges that focus on academic areas identified in the college's name. Each state college places a special emphasis on teaching and lifelong learning and promotes a campus life that fosters intellectual, social, and ethical development. Committed to excellence in instruction and to providing responsive, innovative, and educational programs of high quality, they seek to develop each student's critical thinking, quantitative, technological, oral, and written communication skills, and practical appreciation of the arts, sciences, and humanities as they affect good citizenship and an improved quality of life.
