Wright State graduates will have the ability to apply insights from multiple disciplines to engage effectively with a diverse world.  For information about the University Learning Objectives go to: http://www.wright.edu/wright-state-core#tab=university-learning-objectives  For more information about the Wright State Core go to: http://www.wright.edu/wright-state- core/wright-state-core-program-requirements/program-requirements WSU ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY (from the Code of Student Conduct) It is the policy of Wright State University to uphold and support standards of personal honesty and integrity for all students consistent with the goals of a community of scholars and students seeking knowledge and truth.
