This is a graphic for Spring Arbor University. It represents the overall curriculum at SAU -- embodying the importance of liberal arts studies. The roots are built upon a foundation of the Spring Arbor University Concept (listed below). The trunk represents the "Core" courses (unique to SAU) and liberal arts studies. Finally, the tree branches out into the various areas of study that SAU offers.
The cross-section of the tree further breaks down the Core curriculum. Each ring represents a year at SAU -- there is evident growth.
The Spring Arbor University Concept: "Spring Arbor University is a community of learners distinguished by our lifelong involvement in the study and application of the liberal arts, total commitment to Jesus Christ as the perspective for learning, and critical participation in the contemporary world."
