According to Allen, TEP is an overhaul of the general education core, “we want to shift our focus to skills and competencies rather than specific courses,” stated Allen. The goal of the program is to produce graduates that are competent in communication, wellness, critical thinking, global perspective, identity, servant leadership, teamwork, civic engagement, stem and quantitative literacy, innovation, creativity, artistic literacy and capstone courses or experience.
“We are committed to graduating well rounded, marketable students,” stated Allen. She went on to say, “we want to make sure what we’re doing as an institution is relevant and will ensure student success. We want to make sure things are done better as we move into university status.”
Passing the Baton was the theme of the 2012 Leadership Retreat in Hilton Head, SC, June 10-13. The retreat was packed with presentations from various offices on campus that discussed the direction the University was headed and included team building activities. Dr. Suber stressed the importance of working together towards a common goal and encouraged retreat attendees to stop out of their comfort zones to achieve different results.
