University of Dayton

Dayton, OH

The University of Dayton says, 'The Common Academic Program (CAP) is an innovative curriculum that is the foundation of a UD education. It is a learning experience that is shared in common among all undergraduate students, regardless of their major. The CAP's distinctive structure is built on the notion that, while students will have unique experiences at UD, all academic programs and learning encounters are informed by the seven institutional learning goals: scholarship, faith traditions, diversity, community, practical wisdom, critical evaluation of our times and vocation. Students' unique learning experiences promote knowledge, skills and dispositions through engaging, developmental and integrated courses and experiences that are necessary for 21st century graduates.'
