Slippery Rock says, "The SRU faculty has developed the Liberal Studies Program to be part of every student's experience. Our purpose is not to teach you 'all you need to know.' Rather, we want to give you the opportunity to explore different ideas and to gain appreciation for several ways of knowing. In this way, we hope to encourage you to develop those intellectual insights and skills that will enable you to enjoy a lifetime of learning." [Source]
