In keeping with our mission and vision, CVTC promotes the development of four key core abilities. These core abilities address the broad-based skills that will prepare a student to become a productive member of the workforce, a civic-minded citizen of the community, and a life-long learner ready to grow with her/his chosen profession. A student who has mastered the core abilities is one who does the following:
- Develops self-awareness
- Practices personal accountability
- Demonstrates ethical behavior
- Applies quality standards
- Follows sustainable practices
- Applies problem solving strategy
- Acquires relevant information
- Uses technology and other resources appropriately
- Evaluates alternatives
- Constructs probing questions
- Adapts communication for audience
- Speaks clearly, concisely, and professionally
- Writes clearly, concisely, and professionally
- Practices active listening
- Reads critically
- Recognizes personal biases
- Demonstrates respectful and inclusive interactions
- Adapts to culturally diverse situations
- Works effectively with others
- Demonstrates global awareness
These core abilities are woven throughout the student's avenue of study not becoming the sole responsibility of any one course but rather integrated into all curriculum as appropriate, thus building a strong base for academic and personal success.
