At traditional universities, students pursue studies and gain knowledge in one subject area. At ALU, we understand the importance of specialization—but we create more than specialists. We create graduates who will ultimately attract, organize, and lead specialists to work together to solve problems that are too big for one person.
ALU students become team builders and systems thinkers with a breadth of cross-disciplinary knowledge and innovative problem-solving skills. Graduates of ALU programs do things in the world; they solve problems in a variety of domains; and they continuously learn. They develop deep, pragmatic skills for taking meaningful action and cultivate the values and character needed to rally individuals, communities, nations, and global societies to a more equitable, peaceful, and prosperous world.
Today’s future leaders and entrepreneurs need more than just the “stamp of approval” that a bachelor’s or a master’s degree provides. At ALU, students get a well-rounded education including academics, leadership development, and so much more.
