Asbury University

Wilmore, KY

Asbury University says that "Asbury University's Foundational Liberal Arts Program organizes around five (5) key conceptual areas. Each of the five areas clearly identifies a Student Learning Outcome (SLO) crucial to the liberal arts vision and overall academic mission of the University. While each conceptual category is distinct, and supports a clearly defined learning outcome, none of categories is to be considered as isolated from the other, nor static. They are of a piece, all interconnected, inseparable, and dynamic." [Source]
