American University says, "We reject the idea that there is any single body of knowledge that constitutes 'what all educated people should know.' What we care about are learning outcomes - that is, how your education helps you become who you are. We believe that our graduates should be equipped with certain intellectual skills and resources if they are to understand the complex dynamics of an increasingly connected global environment."
