Goal Two: Deliver a distinctive and integrated liberal arts education.

Gustavus ACTS

“Integrated” means a student’s experiences in and out of the classroom operate in tandem to build a transformative college experience. “Distinctive” means notable and desirable, recognized excellence.

Some of our accomplishments to date: the $70 million Nobel Hall of Science expansion and renovation, the expansion of the Center for Career Development and the growth of mentoring and peer education programs, and partnerships among student life divisions.

The anchor of Goal Two is the Challenge Curriculum, the general education curriculum that is the result of five years of discovery and design by Gustavus faculty. The Challenge Curriculum is an interdisciplinary, solutions-focused curriculum designed to empower students to act on the great challenges of our time.
