The General Education Committee oversees the process of assessment to determine the extent to which these four outcomes are being taught and learned. Where weaknesses in the general education curriculum are identified, the General Education Committee makes recommendations to the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education as to how these weaknesses might be addressed.
The Four General Education Outcomes as Established by the General Education Committee
These outcomes represent the general qualities expected of all Baylor graduates:
Communication: Baylor graduates communicate effectively and clearly, both in writing and in speaking, in a manner appropriate to the subject, occasion, and audience.
Critical Thinking: Baylor graduates are expected to be proficient in evaluating evidence, articulating arguments, justifying conclusions, and identifying and presenting multiple perspectives.
Leadership, Civic Engagement, and Service: Baylor graduates are able to demonstrate an understanding of the challenges of a global society with a commitment to social and civic responsibility and service among diverse communities.
Christian Perspective: Baylor graduates can demonstrate knowledge of the Christian scriptures and Christian heritage that enables participation in discourse from a Christian perspective.
