The Mission of Meredith College General Education
Our mission is to provide a unique signature Perspectives curriculum, a broad education in the liberal arts and sciences, and a focus on academic skills to all Meredith students. Through their active participation in this curriculum Meredith College women will be able to inquire critically, solve problems creatively, make decisions ethically, and communicate effectively. As educated women Meredith graduates will understand that they have the moral responsibility to use their skills as engaged citizens. They will know that local action is their starting point for addressing global problems. Understanding knowledge as complex and ever changing, they will have the courage and curiosity to be adaptable lifelong learners.
