Core General Education Outcomes

In the fall of 2018, using input from a survey of St. Edward's University faculty and a review of the general education requirement learning outcomes, the General Education Implementation Committee identified the following programmatic outcomes for our core curriculum:

  • ​Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility
  • Communication (Oral, Written, and Visual)
  • Critical Thinking
  • Intercultural Knowledge and Competence
  • Problem Solving & Innovative Thinking 
  • Ethical Reasoning

SEU defined the first five of these outcomes for our campus during the General Education Learning Outcomes discussion sessions on March 8, 2019. During these sessions and in work sessions that followed, faculty developed campus definitions and rubrics for each of these general education learning outcomes.

We are currently seeking faculty feedback. While we particularly encourage feedback from faculty who teach general education courses, we welcome responses from all SEU faculty.  Click here to view the rubrics and complete a short survey that will remain open through May 15th.

Additional information related to these sessions the General Learning Outcomes can be found in Box.
