Reap College of Creative and Professional Studies

Message from the Dean

On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to the Reap College of Creative and Professional Studies! We educate students in career-oriented professions through the Schools of Architecture, Business, Education, Humanities, and Visual and Performing Arts, the Ph.D. in Strategic Leadership and Administration, and Nonprofit Leadership and Public Management.

Join us, and you will gain job-ready skills to succeed in your chosen area. You will become a pro: an accomplished expert, capable and competent, practiced and proficient. Yet you will gain more than professional expertise here. You will also learn that the spirit of the amateur is crucial to a successful professional career. This spirit is evident in amateur's root Latin word, 'Amare,' which means 'to love.' This spirit distinguishes Marywood's professional programs from other universities. At Marywood, you will discover that successful professionals are motivated by their love and passion for their work and, importantly, the benefits to those they serve.

So join us as we work for the common good. Review our programs. Acquaint yourself with our faculty, staff, and students. You will find meaningful career avenues and passionate people like yourself. And don't be shy: contact us if you have any questions. 

Meet the Dean

Sullivan, James J
