The university includes social justice and transdisciplinary (interdisciplinary) studies in its curriculum. Because I have the opportunity to learn on a deeper level and how each discipline is interconnected, the awareness I gain is not just in my area of study. These things promote lifelong learning, personal growth, and an awareness of others and the world we live in.
