Educating Productive Involved Citizens (EPIC), Lyon College’s Core program, is a defining feature of its liberal arts curriculum. EPIC aims to develop and nurture the intellectual, institutional, and societal foundations of a constitutional democracy and to develop in students the integrity and fundamental skills essential for lifelong achievement and success. It aims to help students learn, discover, reflect, and live with an expanding awareness of their responsibility to the community, the world, and themselves.
Through Lyon's Core curriculum, students will develop an understanding of the intellectual and practical skills essential for engaged citizenship, the historical and cultural heritages that have shaped modern society, the differences within communities and regions around the world, and the personal responsibilities necessary for engaged citizenship.
