College Graduate Competencies
The Faculty Assessment Committee has identified six areas of College Graduate Competencies or CGCs. These CGCs are communicated to students by a statement that is common to every course syllabus: MTC believes that every graduate should possess a common set of skills regardless of the student’s major.
These skills are collectively called the College Graduate Competencies, or CGCs. The faculty has defined specific CGCs in six areas:
- Mathematics: Solve problems using mathematics.
- Communications: Communicate and write effectively.
- Writing Across the Curriculum Rubric Tool
- Information Technology: Use a computer to perform personal and professional tasks.
- Problem Solving and Decision Making: Recognize and solve problems through analysis, evaluation, and synthesis to make informed decisions.
- Interpersonal and Professional Behavior: Demonstrate good work habits, effective interpersonal and teamwork skills, and a high level of professionalism.
- Diversity: Exhibit respect and sensitivity for individual and institutional differences.
These skills are taught, reinforced, and/or periodically measured in various courses throughout the curriculum in every degree program.
