Our Promise to You
Your student may already have a degree program in mind, or they may be struggling to decide on a major. They might even not be sure that college is right for them. They may do their best with clear, structured assignments, or flourish in the field learning through a process of creativity, discovery, and self-direction. Their success may lie through individualized attention, or they may thrive in an environment that emphasizes collaboration and teamwork.
Helping your student find the balance between their learning needs, the right academic program, affordable tuition costs, and location can feel daunting. Adding to the task, you undoubtedly want to support your student in making their own choices, while also ensuring that they enter adulthood with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in an ever-evolving world and without undue financial burdens.
At McNeese, we are committed to helping your student discover the degree program that will secure their future. We pledge to provide them with the encouragement and support they need to help them achieve their dreams, as well as the flexibility to meet their learning styles. Whichever degree program they choose, our goal is to instill in them the timeless knowledge and skills that bridge all academic disciplines, so they will graduate able to adapt and overcome whatever challenges the future might present.
When you think of college, you may think of large auditoriums where hundreds of students are crowded in to listen to a professor lecture from a podium. That doesn’t happen at McNeese. With small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios, our professors and instructors have personal relationships with each of their students, and therefore a personal stake in their welfare and success. Highly qualified experts in their respective fields, our professors and instructors provide individualized mentorship to students and help them make the best decisions to meet their educational and career goals. With 70% of our professors and instructors classified as full-time faculty or tenure-track, we are committed to maintaining a strong, long-term teaching staff that is committed to student success.
Learning extends outside of the classroom, too, and so we offer a variety of enrichment opportunities such as study abroad and, thanks to our strong ties to local industries, a robust internship program available to students in every major. We also believe learn by doing starts at home, which is why we offer a number of employment opportunities for students right here on campus.
College is a place where everyone should feel safe. Ensuring your student's health and safety is a core part of our culture, which is why we have a dedicated on-site police force who work to keep campus safe and secure. We also believe that safety is proactive, community effort, which is why we have policies in place protecting all members of our campus community against bullying, harassment, and abusive behavior.
Our dedication to health and safety also extends to your student's physical and mental well being at McNeese, which is why we have on-campus Student Health Services, where students can receive acute medical care fully funded by an assessed student health fee included in their regular semester fees. Students can also receive free counseling and acute mental health care at our on-campus counseling center.
