At SSU you’ll also get the opportunity to develop personally and spiritually as part of your educational experience. To us this is a vital element of learning and growth. We love to tackle deep questions of faith, identity and meaning as an integral part of our liberal arts program. We ask these questions from a position of open-mindedness and curiosity, valuing diversity of ideas and opinions, past and present.
No pat answers here – we think the questions are often more helpful, and being over-certain of answers can limit learning and growth. One of the hallmarks of a Liberal Arts degree is critical thinking – the analysis and evaluation of an issue to form an opinion. At SSU we help you form, question and express your opinions and worldview, fostering an environment in which we respect and learn from those with differing opinions and worldviews.
