Cornerstone provides Purdue students with the skills that will serve them throughout their lives: to write and speak with clarity and precision, to think critically and creatively, to assimilate and analyze information, to adapt to change and connect in multi-cultural environments, to make sound ethical judgments, and to understand the implications of decisions in both a historical and societal context.
