Michael Thompson, Vice President
General Education includes those courses traditionally labeled “arts and sciences” plus other experiences which give students a wide background of interrelated knowledge. The purpose of these courses and experiences is to enable students to think logically, to solve problems, and to clearly communicate their thoughts, choices, and solutions. General education provides the stimulus to encourage students to investigate more deeply those unfamiliar areas that will enrich their lives and enable them to cope with the stresses and changes of life in years to come.
General Education Goals
- Clearly communicate in written form.
