Academic Policies & Documents
The College of Business Administration and Information Sciences at Clarion University
of Pennsylvania is committed to preparing its students for success as ethical business
leaders and professionals in a dynamic, complex, global environment through high quality,
challenging academic and related programs, while serving the academic and business
communities through effective teaching, scholarly contributions, and appropriate service
to the university and the region.
The faculty and staff of the College of Business Administration and Information Sciences at Clarion University recognize that we exist, above all, to serve the students. We are dedicated to offering and delivering high quality undergraduate and graduate education that prepares the next generation of principled leaders and professionals in the areas of business, industry, and government. Both an undergraduate business education, with Associates and Bachelors degrees, and a Masters of Business Administration are administered through campuses in Clarion and Oil City, with a primary service area of western Pennsylvania. We strive for continuous improvement in all of our programs and curricula. This is accomplished through effective teaching and practical applications; technological literacy; research that is relevant to the learning mission of the University, including intellectual contributions that primarily advance practice and enhance disciplinary knowledge, but also improve learning and pedagogy; professional development activities; and service to the University and community. In addition, we exhibit leadership; develop strong partnerships with regional business, industry and government organizations; and promote a diverse student body and faculty. We recognize that we must foster a spirit of intellectual inquiry, equity, and tolerance in the classroom and workplace, and hold integrity as the cornerstone of our actions.
