INSTITUTIONAL STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
[ ]  1. Effective oral communication: capacity to deliver prepared, purposeful presentations designed to increase knowledge, to foster understanding, or to promote change in the listeners’ attitudes, values, beliefs, or behaviors. 
[ ]  2. Effective written communication: development and expression of ideas in writing through work in many genres and styles, utilizing different writing technologies, and mixing texts, data, and images through iterative experiences across the curriculum. 
[X]  3. Critical thinking: a habit of mind characterized by the comprehensive exploration of issues, ideas, artifacts, and events before accepting or formulating an opinion or conclusion. 
[X]  4. Problem solving: capacity to design, evaluate, and implement a strategy to answer an openended question or achieve a desired goal. 
[ ]  5. Intercultural knowledge and competence: a set of cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills and characteristics that support effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural contexts. 
[ ]  6. Information literacy: the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively and responsibly use and share that information for the problem at hand. 
[X]  7. Foundations and skills for lifelong learning: purposeful learning activity, undertaken on an ongoing basis with the aim of improving knowledge, skills, and competence. 
[X]  8. Quantitative Reasoning: ability to reason and solve quantitative problems from a wide array of authentic contexts and everyday life situations; comprehends and can create sophisticated arguments supported by quantitative evidence and can clearly communicate those arguments in a variety of formats.
