B. C. D. E. Institutional Core Competencies: South Central College has created goals for all of its students to attain by the completion of their degrees. These standards are called Institutional Core Competencies. South Central College has determined that the following six competencies are important educational, career and personal life skills. Communication: Communicate effectively with a variety of audiences using verbal, non-verbal, listening, written, interpersonal and team skills Critical Thinking: Evaluate arguments, separate fact and opinion, recognize points of view, understand implications and consequences, make ethical decisions and acknowledge diverse values. Global Citizenship: Understand the inter-connectedness of people's nations, geography, economics, environment, culture and politics. Has a general knowledge of history and world events. Understand and respect cross-cultural differences and issues. Understand the impact of other cultures and world events on life in the USA. Work effectively in teams of diverse composition. Math/Logic Reasoning: Apply computation, data measurement, logic, analysis and synthesis to F. G. solve problems and make decisions. Professionalism: Develop attitudes and habits of punctuality, honesty, respect and self-directedness while contributing to a personal and group goal. Technological Literacy: Access and analyze information using technology to solve problems and work on individual and team projects. External Standards Goal 3: Natural Sciences To improve students' understanding of natural science principles and of the methods of scientific inquiry, i.e., the ways in which scientists investigate natural science phenomena. As a basis for lifelong learning, students need to know the vocabulary of science and to realize that while a set of principles has been developed through the work of previous scientists, ongoing scientific inquiry and new knowledge will bring changes in some of the ways scientists view the world. By studying the problems that engage today's scientists, students learn to appreciate the importance of science in their lives and to understand the value of a scientific perspective. Students should be encouraged to study both the biological and physical sciences. •Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories. •Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty. •Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing. •Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.
