SP2.2: Core Competencies for Binghamton University Undergraduates
This project calls upon us to identify the unique set of competencies that define Binghamton University graduates, establish a process to guide and document students' adaptation of these competencies and determine how to measure success. Initial Road Map funding provided separate funding streams to the divisions of student affairs and academic affairs for different components of the project. The separate branches of the project have since been consolidated into a single initiative co-managed by the EVP/provost and VP for Student Affairs. Continuing work on this project is being done by a committee of faculty, staff and students, with staff support from a graduate assistant.
- Student Affairs Assessment and Strategic Initiatives hired a graduate assistant to support the project (July 2013).
- Graduate assistant compiled reference materials on core competency initiatives from professional organizations and other institutions for reference.
- Committee of faculty, staff and students was appointed and charged by EVP/provost and VPSA with staff support from graduate assistant.
- The committee, chaired by Professor Sara Reiter, has begun identifying a matrix of competencies.
- B-engaged database and its curriculum module will be used to keep data on student attainment and three small pilot projects have been identified to test/adapt B-engaged curriculum module to this purpose.
