Assessment of Academic Programs - Cross-Curricular Skills

Cross-Curricular Skills

The purpose of the cross-curricular skills is to enable each institution to integrate and extend general education learning into its programs of study in a manner consistent with and supportive of each institution’s mission, vision and values and any requirements of ongoing institutional or program-specific accreditation or approval. Each institution will manage the design, integration, assessment, evaluation and ongoing continuous improvement of cross-curricular skills within its degree programs. Each university undergraduate program will select no less than five of the following cross-curricular skill requirements as programmatic student learning outcomes.

  • Inquiry and Analysis
  • Critical and Creative Thinking
  • Information Literacy
  • Teamwork
  • Problem Solving
  • Civic Knowledge and Engagement
  • Intercultural Knowledge
  • Ethical Reasoning
  • Foundational Lifelong Learning Skills
  • Integrative Learning
  • Diversity, Inclusion and Equity
