Design Your Shared Competencies Path

The Shared Competencies are six university-wide learning goals that enhance your Syracuse University experience. Students achieve the Shared Competencies through major degree courses, liberal arts requirements, electives, co-curricular learning experiences, and campus jobs.

  1. Ethics, Integrity, and Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
  2. Critical and Creative Thinking
  3. Scientific Inquiry and Research Skills
  4. Civic and Global Responsibility
  5. Communication Skills
  6. Information Literacy and Technological Agility

Undergraduate courses are tagged with up to three competency tags to highlight the knowledge and skills students can expect to gain. Course tags are searchable in class search, schedule builder, and appear in the course catalog. Watch the video to learn more!

On ‘Cuse activities, leaders of Registered Student Organizations can tag events based on which of the six competencies attendees will gain from the event. By tagging an event you are highlighting the transferable skills students will learn at the event.

When searching for events to attend, you can now filter through events based on the six Shared Competencies. Watch the video to learn more!
