At Lynchburg, you’ll find a collaborative environment. Students work closely with faculty, not only in the classroom but in professional organizations and through service opportunities. Our professors are reflective practitioners, encouraging students to look back at their work, learn from it, and eventually become independent professionals.
Our faculty creates a culture of leadership development, fostering cultural competence, effective communication, critical thinking, and community outreach.
