The Computer Science Department has a three-pronged mission:
- to pursue and to publicize research projects in computer science in order to extend the present state of knowledge in the computing field;
- to educate students in all program levels in order to provide them with the knowledge, interest, and ethics to become productive members of the computing profession;
- to serve as an initial and continuing source of education in the field of computer science.
