Learning Goal Statement

Students will be able to articulate their “Why” for pursuing higher education at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and identify and use resources available to help them choose a major and/or career path with members of their residence hall community.

Learning Narrative

Research demonstrates that students who can articulate their “Why” for attending college are more successful than those who cannot. Prioritizing “Purpose” invites students to participate in experiences designed to build their self-efficacy to accomplish their academic and career goals. Purpose involves students reflecting on and moving toward developing answers to the questions, “who am I,” “who do I want to be,” and “how do I get there.”
