OBJECTIVES For our students: To provide training that enables our graduates to find employment that is both monetarily and spiritually more fulfilling than they would have been able to obtain if they had not graduated from COLA. For our faculty and staff: To provide a work environment that is both personally and professionally fulfilling and economically rewarding. For our owners: To provide an investment opportunity that not only creates a greater return on investment than available elsewhere but also provides an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to society.
