Speaking about education, Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “The function of education is to teach one to think
intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.’’
Critical thinking is a central goal of Jesuit education, and at LMU you’ll be asked to think critically and intensively in
every class. Dr. King suggests that critical thinking results in our ability to inform intelligence with character, and
strengthen character with intelligence. Please talk about a situation that demanded critical thinking from you, and how
your choices or decisions integrated intelligence and character.
