Lee College Mission Statement

Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences

Crime Scene Investigation

The mission of the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences is to integrate traditional liberal arts and sciences education with the highest quality professional education to prepare our students to become leaders in society and within their professional fields. Our educational programs are designed to meet this goal by creating what we have named our “Student Centered Professional Practice Oriented Learning Environment.” The creation of this learning environment is guided by the recognition that students learn best and have the best retention of their learning when they are actively engaged in their educational experience. The essence of this approach to education is captured by the following proverb: “Tell me and I forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I understand.”

The College’s programs are organized around students’ educational and developmental needs. Our classes, clubs, internships and student activities are designed to encourage students to become fully engaged in the learning environment and to take advantage of all the learning opportunities available at the university. Our faculty members are drawn from among the most well-recognized professionals in their specialized fields; and they have the ability to integrate core academic learning and the professional application of those core academic competencies to deliver “Real-Life Learning.”
