Mision / Vision

The mission of Franklin College is to provide a multi-cultural and international academic environment withink which students acquire the essential knowledge and critical, creative and analytical abilities necessary to attain success in their chosen careers and to live culturally enriched and rewarding lives.

  • be articulate;
  • exhibit cultural competency in a variety of settings;
  • value cultures other than their own; and
