Distinctive General Education at Winthrop University
In order to create an academic environment in which students use their talents to achieve excellence, take
responsibility for the integrity and quality of their own work, and engage in meaningful practices that prepare them
to fulfill their obligations as students in an academic community and as responsible global and local citizens, the
faculty developed the Touchstone Program at Winthrop University, our distinctive general education experience.
The Touchstone Program captures the dynamic quality of Winthrop’s academic environment that provides students
with a framework for learning and responsible decision-making that they will use throughout their lives.
