If we were given all the Answers, how would we ever grow?

There is nothing passive about a Culver education. The 21st century’s most complex problems don’t have expected answers. That’s why we challenge our students and equip them with the tools for success. Our faculty are gifted scholars with a zeal for learning and teaching, and a knack for bringing out the utmost in everyone. They frame essential questions and encourage students to guide inquiry and discussion, helping them grow into independent, critical thinkers who are unafraid to work together to achieve a solution.
