VU's General & Liberal Education Program

VU's Liberal Education Program creates a marriage between VU's distinctive learning values for all students and Indiana's state-wide general education outcomes.  VU has mapped the state outcomes to VU's liberal education outcomes, using critical, ethical, and integrative thinking activities and assignments, plus the content and methods of the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, VU will be able to assess both VU's liberal education and the state's general education outcomes.
