Letter from Our President

As we move forward with our Strategic Plan, Celebrating Our Past: Forging Our Future, I look forward to successfully meeting the needs of our community, our region and society.  Through comprehensive planning and a culture that embraces change we will continue to strive for excellence.  We want to ensure that the investments made by our students and their families go hand in hand with our commitment to productivity, efficiency and affordability. 

Centenary College provides the necessary tools for productive leadership, responsible citizenship and the pursuit of diverse careers.  The core competencies nurtured by a devoted faculty and staff provide student enrichment to develop critical thinking, master the synthesis of complex and disparate information, and communicate effectively both orally and in writing.

Centenary values a student-centered learning environment which is exemplified in small classes, learning formats that fit the needs of a diverse learning population, and a high level of faculty interaction.  The First Year Experience Program is designed to equip First Year students with the skills and experiences needed to make a successful transition into Centenary College. We embed community service into the core curriculum and co-curricular environment to prepare responsible citizens. 

Our students have the opportunity to succeed here at Centenary in an inclusive environment that will prepare them for the global opportunities that lie ahead.
