Heald College Education Philosophy
Our education philosophy is simple: We succeed when our students succeed.
Unlike other career colleges, earning an associate degree at Heald is much more than just skill training. Our education philosophy is to provide our students with the resources necessary to become well-rounded, highly motivated, qualified candidates for their career.
In addition to taking courses in their chosen program area, our students study contemporary literature and culture, ethical practices and personal and social responsibility. We also help them develop confidence, leadership abilities, collaboration techniques and communication skills. While employers are eager to find employees with technical proficiency, these "soft" skills are extremely important in a professional environment.
Our faculty consists of people who know what it means to be in the work force. At Heald, we hire instructors who have both academic and real-world experience. They teach practical, relevant skills that students will actually be able to use throughout their careers.
But before that career starts, we want the time our students spend at Heald to be the best it can be. Our campuses are supportive environments filled with positive, like-minded people. We know because that's what our graduates tell us. It's the sense of belonging to a community they had at Heald that they remember most.
