PIA is committed to the pursuit of higher education that is both meaningful to the individual and valuable to society. The Institute believes that it serves the dual functions of providing its learners with opportunities while furnishing the community with its most valuable resources, skilled men and women who possess the willingness to learn and the propensity to mature as contributing members of society.
To accomplish its objectives, PIA believes that school programs must:
- develop specific career-related skills,
- broaden abilities in essential academic areas, and
- form attitudinal traits compatible with career goals.
In order to be effective, these studies must be dispensed through an appropriate collection of instructional techniques, each designed to best achieve its specific objective(s). In reaching these goals, PIA accomplishes its purpose as a provider of career opportunities and fulfills its role as an institution of higher learning.
