We believe that intellectual and personal growth reach their highest potential in an atmosphere that is both challenging and supportive. The IC educational experience is focused on the development of intellect, creativity, and character through curricular, co-curricular, and campus life experiences. Studies in the liberal arts are enriched by professional practice and other curricular opportunities, and studies in the professioal schools are grounded in the liberal arts tradition.
