Welcome! If you want to change people’s lives, our college is the place for you. We empower our graduates to teach children from preschool through adulthood, help deliver babies and provide care and comfort to the elderly. Our graduates direct recreational programs that boost health and rejuvenate the spirit, and they help those who have lost the power of speech to regain it.
