We exist to provide quality education at the grass roots which is the requirement for progress and prosperity of our dear homeland. Advising, mentoring, personal interaction, and active engagement among faculty, staff, students, and alumni greatly enhance the educational experience at LCMS. Learning is derived from the totality of the College experience, including activities both inside and outside the classroom. Our academic support services exist to serve the academic mission: they should be effective, efficient, and continually improving. A sense of family and an appealing environment provide a special place in which to learn, live, and work. All individuals at LCMS are valued; their skills and knowledge should be cultivated, their work supported, and their leadership skills developed.
