USAO Statement of Core Belief
Pursuing a liberal arts education demands that one approach every situation with an
open mind, ready to consider multiple perspectives. There are, however, core values
that we must never abandon in the pursuit of cooperation. USAO, as an institution,
embraces a core belief about the power of liberal arts education.
"WE BELIEVE that the best path to a meaningful and purposeful life is an education that integrates knowledge from many disciplines to equip individuals for the 21st century."
This belief is so central to our mission that we print it on the back of our business cards for quick reference. Now, you too, can keep a crib sheet of USAO's core belief statement by printing from the following PDF.
