General Education Mission Statement

In alignment with Central Washington University's mission, the General Education Program helps to prepare graduates to become responsible citizens, to explore and understand the natural world, and to become independent learners toward the end of leading enlightened and productive lives. The responsibility of the General Education Program is to offer students multiple and varied opportunities to engage with, inquire about, and interrogate ideas in order to liberate and enrich our students' greatest potential as human beings. Through the General Education curriculum, students will be introduced to an intellectual legacy that includes the best ideas, methodologies, and accomplishments in the broad areas of the natural sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and the arts. In addition, students will develop through repeated praxis the habits of mind and modes of expression essential to leading enlightened and productive lives in their local and global communities.
