Newman’s Educational philosophy is to inspire critical thinking, connect ideas and create meaningful conclusions. Newman ensures that students have the tools they need for their liberal arts studies and their future careers by creating the Newman Studies Program (NSP). This is a required set of principles that are grafted into course work and as standalone studies. Newman believes that this will create a strong foundation – ready for whatever the next step is going to be.
