Mission of the School of Science, Technology, and Business

The mission of the Labry School of Science, Technology and Business (LSSTB) is to contribute substantively to the core curriculum through mathematics and the natural sciences, and to offer Cumberland University students the opportunity to major in a number of modern professional programs such as business and information technology. The curricula are designed to provide a fundamental grounding in the liberal arts and to allow students to sharpen their powers of observation, analysis, and evaluation. In addition, the market relevant programs enable students to further develop communication, critical thinking, and decision making skills in order to prepare them for graduate studies and/or professional careers. This contemporary perspective on curricula is underscored with an emphasis on practical application, teamwork, ethics, internships, and experiential learning. (Revised 01/30/15)
