THE VISION OF DOWLING COLLEGE IS TO BECOME A REGIONALLY, NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION THAT PROVIDES EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION BY FOSTERING AN ENVIRONMENT OF COLLABORATIVE LEARNING AND OPEN ACADEMIC INQUIRY.

We foster an open and supportive learning environment that is based upon collaboration between a committed and supportive expert faculty and a student body diverse in its interests, beliefs, culture, ethnicity, and geographic origin. We recognize learning as a lifetime endeavor, particularly as it relates to globalization. The college upholds its educational mission through teaching, learning and research in the arts, sciences and professions such as education, business and aviation, and by providing members of the community and Dowling alumni with opportunities for continuing education.
