Mission Statement

The Philosophy and Religious Studies Department seeks to nurture the development of reason--a thoughtful, informed, and critically reflective intellectual conscience ready to identify and reassess basic assumptions--within the College community generally but especially within our students. The essence of philosophy is to question, inquire into, and think critically about fundamental principles, whatever the field, but above all the principles of philosophy itself. Consequently, for philosophy to be true to itself, no such assumption as may be found in a mission statement can ever be wholly settled and taken for granted.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
