The faculty ofThe Chubb Institute (Westbury) believes that undergraduate education, engagement with the liberal arts, and practical application of knowledge enlarges students' perspectives and prepares them for the various vocations. Consequently, graduates of The Chubb Institute (Westbury) will:
Think critically, clearly, and accurately in the pursuit of Truth. Because students are exposed to a wide variety of social institutions, historical perspectives, manifestations of culture, and systems of belief, as well as the means by which people express themselves in these contexts, a comprehensive education equips students to evaluate wisely and discriminate among the varied perspectives they encounter. The breadth and depth of knowledge they have gained in a variety of disciplines allows students to inquire with discernment and to reason validly. Moreover, the empirical skills they acquire allow them to engage with the structure, forces, and systems of creation and relate scientific concepts to the phenomena of the physical universe.
Express themselves with grace and precision in a variety of contexts. A education fosters students' ability to listen, speak, and write respectfully, critically, and effectively. It also nurtures their ability to reason and express observed relationships in numeric, symbolic, and graphic forms, while at the same time integrating appropriate technologies into their studies. In order to communicate with integrity from a global perspective, students will develop a facility with the elements, structure, and cultural context of a foreign language. Finally, their exposure to the arts and humanities stimulates students' willingness to depict ideas and emotions creatively in verbal, visual, and musical forms.
