Learning Outcome Archives

Service and Civic Responsibility

Students belong to many communities, whether it is their work, campus, affiliations, or their town community. Students learn the meaning of “giving back” and how to play an active role for a greater purpose.

Tolerance of Ambiguity

Unfortunately there is no job out there that doesn’t throw a curve ball at you every once in a while. Students learn how to step back from a situation, reassess it, and enter the field again with new ideas and in a calm demeanor.

 

Appreciation of Differences

We are in a world where we each seek individualism. This skill set focuses on the awareness that each person is entitled to be themselves. Not only do students learn about appreciating others’ differences, but they learn to value themselves as individuals.

Resilience

Students face challenging experiences whether it is personal or work related. This skill set works on changing their reactions from a tidal wave of emotion and sense of doubt to being able to utilize a “bounce back” effect.

Self-Knowledge

This is a skill that requires students to exert themselves. There will not always be someone helping students continue to build on their abilities and talents. They must learn to assess themselves, while continuously looking to improve their understanding, awareness, and aptitudes.

Goal Orientation

We strive to have students create an organized focus for their tasks, and most importantly be able to carry out those tasks to their completion. Pieces that make up this outcome include being able to look at tasks as a whole, and use problem solving and strategizing to create an effective plan to tackle the mission at hand.

Independence and Interdependence

It is equally important to be relied on to get work done alone and as part of team. Students are given opportunities to test both atmospheres. There are various occasions for students to demonstrate their affective ability to perform projects and tasks independently.

Responsbility and Accountability

In life people face difficult scenarios and decisions. Our intention is for students to take ownership over their endeavors and accept consequence of the outcome; thus, allowing students to reflect on those actions to make appropriate decisions in the future.

Interpersonal Skills

These are skills that are used daily to interact and communicate with others. It is not just being able to speak to others, but also being able to get along with, listen and understand them. These skills offer benefits to both students’ personal and professional lives. The more students are aware of their skills, the more they will be able to improve them.

Critical Thinking

We all think. However, this outcome is aimed to guide students to intellectually conceptualize ideas by gathering and assessing relevant information, thinking open-mindedly, creating observations, using prior knowledge and experience, reasoning, and lastly reflecting on ideas to come to the best decision.
