Our Department's Mission: The History Department of Slippery Rock University seeks to educate and mentor students to be future leaders in their endeavors and professions by disseminating a knowledge of the past through intensive instruction and research. The department is committed both to academic excellence and to the encouragement of creativity and innovation. We welcome and respect differences, because diversity is a key ingredient in quality education and general discourse. We seek to recruit students from all backgrounds and to foster a culture that instills a sense of responsibility for the broader community. We encourage open debate of ideas within an intellectual environment of mutual respect.
