Student Learning Goals
Over the course of a Puget Sound experience, through involvement in Division of Student Affairs programs and services, students…
… engage in discourse and self expression, learning and using a variety of effective communication skills as applicable to context, audience, and goals.
… utilize active inquiry, logical analysis, reflection, and independent thinking. Students evaluate information from multiple perspectives and use integrative thinking to solve problems and accomplish goals. Students identify and value connections between academic and co-curricular learning and develop a passion for life-long learning.
… encounter diverse identities, thoughts, perspectives, and backgrounds. Students develop knowledge of self and others while complexities of identity and values are tested and explored, promoting growth of integrity, self-reliance, and social consciousness.
… demonstrate an understanding of commonality and difference and an appreciation of inclusive communities. Students make socially conscious decisions while participating as active, collaborative citizens locally and globally.
