Part IV: A Data-based Review of the General Education Program: Executive Summary

About 70% of students meet or exceed performance expectations in their Upper Biennium Rs 1 courses.

Over 40% of seniors say SNC has increased their knowledge of Catholic traditions “not much” or “not at all”.

More than one-third of current students report the same for understanding the Judeo- Christian heritage, deeper understanding of other religions, and identify religious convictions. These findings are corroborated by the Alumni data.

More than half of graduates contribute no time or services to a religious organization.

Students self-reported ability to think logically, test assumptions, and solve problems increases each year, freshmen through senior.

About 60% of SNC seniors scored above the national mean on the CAAP Critical Thinking Test.

More than 75% of SNC students meet or exceed performance expectations for Gs 5 courses.

About 38% of SNC Alumni regard developing an appreciation for the arts as “very important” or “essential”.

Only 20% of SNC seniors regard influencing the political structure as “very important” or “essential”.

Less than half of seniors regard keeping up with politics as “very important” or “essential”.

Fewer than 15% of alumni report holding membership in a political or advocacy group.

The percent of students who attribute a deeper understanding of diverse heritages and peoples to their SNC education increases each year.

Less than 20% of seniors say their acceptance of different races/cultures is “much stronger” than when they first entered college.

As a result of their Gs 8 course, students on average are able to answer 2 additional indicator questions (of 10) correctly compared to their pre-test.

Students overall assessment of their competence in quantitative skills varies significantly by academic division.

The percent of students who report increased understanding and appreciation of western traditions increases each year, freshmen through senior.

About 40% of alumni indicate that SNC contributed “not too much” or “not at all” to their understanding and appreciation of non-western traditions.

80% of SNC students report handing in more than 20 pages of formal writing in a semester. 36% report submitting more than 40 pages.

More than 85% of seniors regard their writing skills as “stronger” or “much stronger” than when they first started college. The alumni data concur.

About 60% of students do not believe the general Studies Program influenced their choice of major.

About 30% of SNC students complete 1 or more general studies courses at another college or university. The most common reasons are transfer, followed by cost, time limitations, and course failure or withdrawal.

Faculty believe Gs Areas 3, 7, 11 & 12 offer a less coherent set of courses than the other GS areas.

Fewer faculty regard areas 3, Upper 1 & 10 as “very essential” to a general education program than the remaining nine.

Among suggested program additions, an oral communications component received the strongest support.
