Graduate Profile

Information literate students understand that the world of information is complex. They think critically about information that they encounter, in any format, and are able to locate appropriate information for their context and need. They are ethical and intentional in their own creation of information. Their skills seamlessly transfer from one program and situation to another and create a foundation for lifelong learning.

Program Outcomes

  1. Differentiate between different kinds of authority and choose the appropriate authority for their context.
  2. Demonstrate that information creation, both their own and others, is a dynamic process made up of a series of intentional decisions.
  3. Identify and examine the underlying power and value structures of information.
  4. Exemplify ethical choices in their use of information.
  5. Conduct research as a dynamic process of asking questions, synthesizing information, and asking further questions.
  6. Recognize that scholarship is a conversation and judge where, when, and how to enter that conversation.
  7. Seek information using an exploratory process, intentionally and continually revising their strategy.
