The SfL is inspired by the University’s mission for the Common Good and through its implementation supports key elements of the GCU Strategy 2020 goals, in particular, that of Transforming Lives. This goal centres on delivering ‘excellence in learning and an outstanding student experience which equips students with the employability and entrepreneurial skills to succeed as global citizens and enables them to make a positive impact within their communities, transforming their lives and the lives of others’ (GCU, 2015). The SfL supports the GCU Values of Integrity, Creativity, Responsibility and Confidence.
The SfL will create successful graduates who are global citizens and who will contribute economically and socially to the communities they serve.
This will be achieved by enabling students to deal with complex global challenges through developing divergent, creative, responsible and entrepreneurial thinking applied to real-world problems. The SfL will also develop attributes linked to employability, career development and the motivation to continue to learn throughout professional and personal lives.
