Culture and the Common Good: the Foundation for the Liberal Arts Education at Fontbonne

Embracing global perspectives, history, social justice and diversity, Culture and the Common Good is the general education core curriculum for all Fontbonne students. In the words of our President, Dr. Michael Pressimone, Ed.D.:

“The theme of culture and the common good reflects Fontbonne’s mission to prepare leaders to serve a world in need, which requires an understanding of culture, the vehicle for changing ideologies and imaginations. Because imagining and building intelligent and moral alternatives for the future intersects with every area of life, this study requires an interdisciplinary approach.”
