Our vision, “Graduates making significant contributions to society,” aligns with AAMU’s mantra of “Start Here, Go Anywhere” and frames our sense of purpose, direction, drive, and mission. As we continue to pursue our mission, we expect that alumni of COBPA will be nationally and globally recognized as successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, non-profit directors, political leaders, and community activist, all creating positive changes in their community and the world.
One of our overarching values is Student-Centeredness. As a college, we place student success as the most important factor behind all our decisions and provide nurturing and caring support for our students. We are genuinely concerned for our students’ welfare, listen to students’ needs, and demonstrate respect and empathy as we advise, mentor, and actively engage with our students.
