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.

Our curriculum is designed so that students focus intensively on three or four subjects in a given term, allowing for deep learning as well as broad exploration. In this high-challenge, high-support environment, we use a seven-point academic support system that includes academic advising, peer coaches, block scheduling, tutorials, college advising, the writing center, and the mentor/mentee program.
To see the world differently, we tackle problems from every side. Our faculty are exceptional at bringing together various disciplines to heighten student understanding of a concept – and to provide altogether different ways of thinking about the world.
