School of Professional Studies
Dean Michael Carey
The School of Professional Studies strives to create, educate, and support leaders; contribute to the health of people, communities, and organizations; and to be of service in meeting the learning needs of a complex society.
Our programs embody the University’s Mission and the Ignatian spirit on which Gonzaga University is founded. Ethics, excellence, spirit, and community are guiding values for all aspects of the School. Faculty scholarship and research contribute positively to the professions, the global community, and the classroom.
Through a spirit of inquiry and lifelong learning, our students expand their capacity to transform thinking, and engage in ethical problem solving and decision making. New knowledge is acquired in a learning environment of respect and high standards. Our teaching strategies meet the needs of diverse student groups by utilizing dynamic program delivery formats, including technology and flexible scheduling. Traditional age undergraduate students, as well as adults returning to complete graduate and undergraduate degrees enrich our learning environment. Non-credit offerings compliment the goals of life-long learners.
