Because superior learning is a natural outcome of learning with
engagement, the college strives to ensure that traditional liberal
education is actively connected to the real world. Learning at
Defiance is characterized by forging intellectual connections
and engagement of the mind with the environment, the self with
others, the individual with community, generality with context,
and deliberation with action. As a result, students are expected to
combine knowledge and understanding with active leadership and
service as they develop reasoning abilities, superior professional
skills, a well-developed sense of self and moral judgment, and an
understanding of their civic roles and responsibilities.
We encourage our students to be of service to their fellow
students, their chosen fields of study, their communities and
the world. We provide opportunities for students to transform
society through civic engagement along with application of their
knowledge and understanding to service.
