College Graduate Competencies

The Faculty Assessment Committee has identified six areas of College Graduate Competencies 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 effectively in writing and orally.
  • Writing Across the Curriculum Rubric Tool
  • Technology: Use technology tools efficiently and effectively to perform personal and professional tasks.
  • Problem Solving: Solve problems through analysis, creativity, and synthesis to make informed decisions.
  • Professionalism: 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.
