Initial post: Then, by Thursday of Module 5, create an initial post that responds to each of the prompts below:

  • What do you believe the true purpose of a college education is today? What do you think it will be in the future?
  • Do you believe colleges have a responsibility to teach concepts like “global understanding” and “cultural diversity and expression”? Why or why not?
  • If you have already completed some of your general education requirements, what did you take away from the experience? If you have some left to complete, what do you hope to get out of general education at Excelsior?
