Next Steps

The Learning Collaborative briefly discussed the current status of adopting a set of essential skills. Due to shifting priorities in response to COVID, the institutional conversation about a common set of skills has halted. No later than October 2020, the Learning Collaborative will produce a recommendation about whether to

  1. Proceed with the draft set of institutional essential skills
  2. Adopt or modify the NACE competencies
  3. Maintain the current Student Affairs learning priorities as our set of essential skills, or
  4. Develop a set of skills informed by all of the aforementioned

Help inform the Learning Collaborative’s recommendation by completing a brief survey about the essential skills you believe are most critical for our students to develop during their time at UGA.
