Soundings encourages scholars to challenge the fragmentation of modern intellectual life and to turn the best and most rigorous deliverances of the several academic disciplines toward the sterner discipline of a common good in human affairs. Soundings aims to publish articles that open disciplines to each other, and it looks for readers who sense in such openings some respect for greater coherence and amplitude in public discourse.

The journal is affiliated with the Society for Values in Higher Education, a fellowship of teachers and others who care deeply about ethical issues—such as integrity, diversity, social justice, and civiv responsibility—facing higher education and the wider society.
