The McMaster School for Advancing Humanity was founded to serve as a focal point for teaching, service, scholarship, and action to improve the human condition worldwide.

The mission of the McMaster School:

  • to educate students for responsible citizenship;
  • to produce committed global citizens and leaders who understand the importance of individual liberties in improving the human condition worldwide; and
  • to encourage graduates to take an active role in addressing these issues in whatever professions they may choose.

The School serves as a catalyst for innovative, interdisciplinary, community-based work by creating and supporting opportunities for teams of faculty, students, and staff to use their academic and professional skills to address community needs.
