Mission Statement

PURPOSE The purpose of the College is to provide a learning model which will aid students in increasing their capacity for self-development and self-expression, and will facilitate their engagements in effective social action as members of the world community. At Sojourner-Douglass College, we believe there are no sharp distinctions between living, learning, and working. Therefore, we approach the community as a learning laboratory where learning can be reconciled with action and study, a concept which reflects student growth through social and academic utility. MISSION STATEMENT Within the general goals of establishing an independent institution for historically by passed people, specific objectives have been designed to: 1. Assist community people in the development of skills and mind sets necessary to gain control over social, political, and economic forces which shape their lives; 2. Provide the climate and orientation necessary for applied research, leadership and community development; 3. Foster greater emphasis on self-fulfillment, self-renewal, personal liberty, self-awareness, self-learning, social justice, and self- determination; 4. Foster greater commitment to fundamental social change, diversity, and pluralism; and 5. Provide the student with the opportunity to improve the quality of life for him/herself and the community-at-large through the acquisition of knowledge, skills, resources and attitudes necessary for a variety of needs.
