The school trains its students so they can "grow into" new approaches smoothly, by providing a solid foundation in the scientific principles which underlie the techniques taught in the program.

Our long-range mission is to provide a basis for life-long learning. Graduates must be able to assess their own needs to meet the needs of a changing world.
