Capital University says, "It is committed to the liberal education of whole persons, both in our majors and in our General Education program. A liberal education readies the mind and spirit for every arena of life-the workplace, the home, the market, houses of worship and town halls. General Education enhances liberal education by developing intellectual skills, expanding the breadth of learning through the exploration of several modes of inquiry, increasing cultural literacy and challenging students to examine foundational ethical and cultural assumptions. It enables students to think critically and reflect on vocation, citizenship, service, religious and ethical commitments-as well as on the role of play, wonder, travel and life-long learning in a rich and rewarding life."
