Student Learning Outcomes

The College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) at Gonzaga University provides the educational foundation for the entire University.  The faculty of the College is dedicated to excellence in teaching and to developing the full intellectual, personal, and social potential of our students in an environment of mutual respect and cooperation.  As a community of educators and learners, including faculty, students, staff, and administrators, our essential goal is to develop educated people whose breadth of awareness and understanding encourages civic engagement, interest in life-long learning, and appreciation of cultural, historical, social, and scientific pursuits.  Rooted in the Catholic, Jesuit, and humanist tradition, we are dedicated to the concept of cura personalis, the nurturing of the whole person.  It is our belief that academic inquiry and discipline, both through the core curriculum and within major disciplines, contributes to our ability to experience intellectually, imaginatively, and spiritually our full authentic humanity.
