  • Goal 9: Ethical and Civic Responsibility

    Goal:

    To develop students' capacity to identify, discuss, and reflect upon the ethical dimensions of political, social, and personal life and to understand the ways in which they can exercise responsible and productive citizenship. While there are diverse views of social justice or the common good in a pluralistic society, students should learn that responsible citizenship requires them to develop skills to understand their own and others' positions, be part of the free exchange of ideas, and function as public-minded citizens.

    Students will be able to:

    • Examine, articulate, and apply their own ethical views.
    • Understand and apply core concepts (e.g. politics, rights and obligations, justice, liberty) to specific issues.
    • Analyze and reflect on the ethical dimensions of legal, social, and scientific issues.
    • Recognize the diversity of political motivations and interests of others.
    • Identify ways to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
