School Name Education, Humanities and social sciences
Philosopy From Plato to the present-day educators are agreed that the life, strength and development of a nation is insured in its education, and that the right of proper education is indispens­able to its survival. This is the education which inculcates moral values while, at the same time, cultivating good life and good citizenship. Such education must be both complete and generous as to enable a man or woman to perform justly, skillfully, and mag­nanimously in all the offices entrusted to him/ her, both private and public. Ever since its inception, and throughout its existence, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences has been guided by the philosophy and the conviction that the questing mind, creative and imaginative thinking as well as dedicated discipline and sense of duty best reflect and characterize successful and progressive edu­cational system or process. Not only is the School dedicated to quality education and academic excellence, it also reflects the con­viction that humanistic disciplines are civil society?s driving engine, the key to its cre­ativity, its diversity, its imagination, and hence its spontaneousness, human rights, democratic values, tolerance, pluralism, good governance, academic freedom and liberty. The School of Humanities and Social Sci­ences sees no better way to understand the lessons of the past and to conceptualize the future than through the humanities and so­cial sciences.
