The mission of the Competency Program is to help students develop the skills and virtues that are essential to good citizenship. Tusculum College has identified writing, analytical reading, public speaking, critical analysis, mathematics, and computer literacy as the foundation competencies that students need to participate fully and effectively in public life. If the best interests of the individual and the community are to be served, these citizenship skills must be guided by a complementary set of citizenship virtues. The College has designated self-knowledge, civility, and the ethics of social responsibility as the virtue competencies.
The competencies are integrated into Tusculum College coursework so that knowledge, skills, and virtues are mutually supportive. As students progress through the curriculum, they become more proficient in their academic skills and more mindful of their practices of virtue. The scholarship, communication abilities, and personal values represented by the competencies enable Tusculum graduates to enhance their personal and professional lives and improve the lives of others in the communities they join.
