Vision and Goals
The USM Core provides our students with a coherent, integrative and rigorous liberal education that will enable them to be world-minded, intentional, life-long learners. Students engage in substantive learning experiences that illuminate and transcend the perspectives of various disciplines while fostering the values and dispositions, knowledge, and skills our students will employ in their personal and professional lives. USM students demonstrate
- Informed understandings of interrelationships between human cultures and the natural world;
- Analytical, contextual, and integrative thinking about complex issues;
- Critical reflection upon, and informed action in, their roles as participants in multiple communities;
- Ethical action to contribute to the social and environmental welfare of local and global communities.
