At DRBU, we want you to find out who you are. College is the perfect time to ask the big questions about what matters to you and where you want to go in life. For many people, that includes a job or career that is meaningful and rewarding. You may be wondering, what can I do with a DRBU degree?

DRBU’s goal is to educate the whole person and nurture lifelong learners who can apply their knowledge and understanding in a creative and beneficial way. We want you to leave here with the confidence that you can tackle any problem with reflection, care and flexibility.

In the classroom and the community, you will learn to listen to others and to think things through, to work as a team and to work on your own, to ask for help when you need it and to confront and manage challenges. You will get the support you need to develop intellectually and emotionally. Preparation like this is indispensable no matter what you choose to do.

I have been reflecting lately on what a transformative experience it was in the DRBU classroom to be deeply listened to, taken seriously, and entrusted with my own capacity for understanding. I try to adopt the same open and attentive attitude toward my students, an aspiration that brings joy to the task of teaching.
