University of South Florida
USF says that "An effective university education must engage students with a diversity of ideas, concepts, and ways of acquiring knowledge. The Foundations of Knowledge and Learning Core (FKL) Curriculum at the University of South Florida emphasizes inquiry as the means of developing complex intellectual skills that enable students to become critical thinkers, concerned citizens, successful professionals, and reflective people who throughout their lives are aware of, understand, and engage with the complexities and challenges that our global realities require."
