Learning Goals

The learning goals of Susquehanna University articulate a vision of our students as confident, liberally educated, and committed to multidisciplinary education as global citizens, working within and across their academic disciplines. They productively gather and apply all facets of their educational experience to personally and professionally frame their vocations, areas of study, and lives, demonstrating achievement, leadership, and service in the world.

the ongoing ways humans seek to explain the natural world; and

the breadth and depth of global human interactions, including belief systems, values, practices, and ways of organizing life.

TITLE IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.

While often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics. It applies to other programs here as well, including academics and administration.
