From a humanistic, rather than a utilitarian perspective, the aim of education is to develop the full range of our various kinds of intelligence, as well as to cultivate our consciousness by expanding, refining, clarifying and elevating it.  Therefore, a liberal, rather than a pragmatic, education works to help students realize the full potential of their human mentality—the endeavor of a lifetime.

All courses and programs in a college of liberal education should justify themselves primarily in terms of how they develop intelligence and cultivate consciousness.
