    the impact of those actions upon others in an environment that is neither permissive nor authoritarian but conducive to purposeful engagement Colgate is an inclusive institution with diverse students and faculty With a mission to educate leaders who will and must come from all societal groups Colgate is committed to educate students to virtue and encourages them to respond openly and sensitively to others who are different from themselves Within the limitations of its resources Colgate extends opportunities to academically qualified students without regard to their ability to finance their education While we celebrate our diversity we function as one institution Although we work together for the success of the university we also recognize that our differences enrich the experiences of all of us Groups that lead a separate existence do not support the whole and those who forsake their culture impoverish all depriving us of the richness of America s cultural background We celebrate that difficult balance between the commonalities of human experience and the particularities of our individual lives The sense of community that begins in student faculty dialogue and continues in the residential college is furthered by Colgate s general education program The faculty at Colgate are deeply committed to the idea that the common experience of a shared core curriculum provides the foundation for dialogue both in the classroom and in campus residences Students and faculty engage those persistent questions and problems that are general to human life as well as new questions raised by technological developments and the proliferation of knowledge General education at Colgate focuses on questions that transcend disciplinary interests and lie at the intersection of the social political economic and philosophical transformations that have marked the 20th century To understand the human condition and the world in which we live requires both analysis and synthesis We divide knowledge into manageable pieces to achieve understanding in depth and we integrate the particular to achieve general understanding Colgate offers a broad array of academic majors both disciplinary and interdisciplinary to assure learning in depth while the program of general education synthesizes the insights of the disciplines into a more coherent understanding of human experience The general education sequence of courses takes students not only to various historical moments but also to a variety of social and cultural locations Colgate puts different cultures Western and non Western in conversation with one another in order that students might see that culture like the human condition is not given a priori it is learned In order to build upon the knowledge gained in the general education program and to enable students to increase their capacity to view their own culture and to learn how others see us Colgate annually offers an extensive array of faculty directed study abroad programs in more than twenty locations in Europe Asia Africa and Latin America Orientation programs enable students regardless of their area of study to prepare for study abroad by examining what it means to live in another culture and
