The oversight for assessing the Core Curriculum rests with the Faculty Senate-appointed Core Curriculum Assessment Committee (CCAC). The Radford University’s Core Curriculum is designed not only to ensure that students gain a foundation of knowledge rooted in the traditional liberal arts education, but that students acquire applied skills critical to such knowledge. The University has defined eleven competency goals which every undergraduate student must successfully achieve.
Radford University is committed to the development of mature, responsible, well-educated citizens. In addition to acquiring a diverse body of knowledge, Radford graduates are expected to acquire a love of learning and a range of intellectual skills that enable them to meet the challenges and realize the promise of living in a complex, multicultural, and ever-changing world. The Office of Academic Assessment assists the Core Curriculum with its assessment efforts.
