Roanoke says, "The Intellectual Inquiry Curriculum flows from the Roanoke College Goals for Liberal Learning, "Freedom With Purpose". It is built around critical inquiry into questions that are important to us as individuals, citizens, and members of a global community. By engaging students in rigorous inquiry and developing abilities in communication and critical thinking across the curriculum, it furthers the college’s mission of developing the skills students need to live as informed, resourceful, and responsible citizens. Combined with students’ majors, it gives students the resources for building an integrated body of knowledge concerning themselves and their world. " [Source]
