Same is also true for global citizenship and multiculturalism/diversity. It would be best described simply as Global Citizenship. Understanding and respecting the differences between groups of people is true whether it be the differences between a gay/lesbian couple and a heterosexual couple living on the same street in the Midwest of the United States or the general differences between people living in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India and people living in the Slovakia region of Czechoslovakia.

I have suggested some rewrites for these outcoms. These seven outcomes correspond to the knowledge, comprehension, and application levels of Bloom's taxonomy. Although these three outcomes are the lowest of Bloom's five levels of cognitive development, they are appropriate for university-level student learning outcomes. It is the responsibility of colleges and their programs to write the higher-level, more focused student learning outcomes.</td></tr><tr><td>37</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 9, 2010 11:57 PM</td><td>Really guys, I'm a liberal too, but we are here to teach and prepare them to think, not to force them to think as we do. You can not force feed an attitude, but you can expand their world. That is what we are here for. By doing our jobs well, they might just get involved, but we can not require that, nor can we require that they agree with us. Once we give up trying to change the world, we might just have the effect we want. They are big kids now, and they come to us with a great deal of awareness. I wish they could write as well.</td></tr><tr><td>38</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 12:00 AM</td><td>i am very plaesed with most of my classes and the amount i am learning</td></tr><tr><td>39</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 12:50 AM</td><td>I love learning communities! :-)</td></tr><tr><td>40</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 12:57 AM</td><td>The most important portion of any project like this is how the outcomes are measured.

I always assumed this was the broad intent of all students whom attend an institute of higher education. The fact that a committee of educators and administrators had to ask these questions testifies to the incompetence of those chosen to lead MSU and prepare the future leaders of our great Nation.</td></tr><tr><td>43</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 1:28 AM</td><td>I think this survey is pretty loaded in-terms of questioning and a zero-sum response option. Each student, class, professor, etc. arrives at or diverges from these outcomes in different levels. Its hard to imagine an institution of higher ed. that wouldn't meet these outcomes in some facet. What, aside from the narrative/qualitative responses, does the university hope to get out of this?</td></tr><tr><td>44</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 1:32 AM</td><td>It seems to me that several of these categories coincide with defined General Education outcomes. Other General Education outcomes have been omitted. This may be perceived as prioritizing some goal areas and academic fields over others. Healthy lifestyle and artistic expression are, for example, absent from this list. I do appreciate the effort to define such Learning Outcomes. I'm not quite sure that presenting them for comment at the last possible moment before they become adopted is early enough though!</td></tr><tr><td>45</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 1:56 AM</td><td>It is nice that the University is pursuing shared learning outcomes! Please consider how they overlap with the general education outcomes (especially gold/purple courses) and of course, the MN transfer curriculum. Too many assessments can become a burden for the entire faculty and the administration. Also, how will these learning outcomes become imbedded in how we operate as a university and do they overlap with our strategic priorities?</td></tr><tr><td>46</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 1:57 AM</td><td>I strongly believe in having service learning requirements for certain courses. It is a win/win situation all around.</td></tr><tr><td>47</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 2:15 AM</td><td>The importance of a person s ethnic identity is an issue that is wrought with conflict, and the relationship between ethnicity and politics is greatly debated. Ethnicity is a complex issue, and one that often requires a multidisciplinary view  it is necessary to consider all the implications of ethnicity in order to fully understand the effect that ethnicity has on politics. Further, ethnicity is an issue that is deeply seated (the issue is not necessarily a surface cause, it is difficult to separate one s ethnicity from one s political views). Again, complicating the matter, politicians often wield the emotional power of ethnicity in order to gain significant power. In spite of (or perhaps, because of) the fact that the issue of ethnicity is so difficult to comprehend, it is important that political scientists attempt to research and explain the complex nature of ethnic identity and how it relates to politics.</td></tr><tr><td>48</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 2:31 AM</td><td>The goals appear to be appropriate, but I am concerned that many of the categories of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum are not represented--where are the sciences? math and logic? the arts?</td></tr><tr><td>49</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 2:34 AM</td><td>These are great starting points that everyone can get on board with but how we achieve these is the real question. What one professor feels is instilling civic engagement could be interpruted by another as not. How do we, as a University, plan to achieve these and through what means? Is there standardized curriculum, set dicussions or papers that must be covered, or are we leaving to the professors/departments?</td></tr><tr><td>50</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 2:43 AM</td><td>Read the first post.

However, I think its important that we weigh the MEANS that students will use to achieve them to determine how realistic it is that we expect them to meet these. Furthermore, I think student ENGAGEMENT could be another viable outcome to consider - since students NEED to be actively engaged in the learning process (both in and outside the classroom) in order to be successful in subsequent life stages. Thank you for your hard work on developing these initial outcomes. I look forward to additional adaptations as they are achieved.</td></tr><tr><td>64</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 4:08 PM</td><td>It seems that 5and 6 could be combined</td></tr><tr><td>65</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 4:11 PM</td><td>I'm at MSU Edina and I feel that There is no organization or collaboration between the teachers in an orderly fashion. 2 teachers in particular don't check their tests for grammar nor do they spell check.

That may be alluded to through other outcomes listed but is not as specific as #7. Arguably, some students don't know how to work together. I appreciate the outcomes but how will they be measured? And then what? Seems to me that most of these replicate the general education. Understandably, #5 and #6 are more vague--leaving an out for real learning. Language indicates gaining knowledge rather than becoming a global citizen, for example. More difficult to measure, I'm sure.</td></tr><tr><td>75</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 7:20 PM</td><td>The outcomes are stated clearly and are broad enough to encompass the entire university community.</td></tr><tr><td>76</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 7:27 PM</td><td>They look very good.</td></tr><tr><td>77</td><td style="white-space:nowrap;">Nov 10, 2010 7:28 PM</td><td>When you asked if they are appicable I was unsure if you meant that I think they apply to CURRENT outcomes in learning at MSU or DESIRED/NEEDED outcomes of learning. I answered yes to all of the Learning Outcomes because I believe that they all should be outcomes of student learning. I'm not sure how this has changed from previously defined outcomes or if defining these outcomes is a new thing. Either way I think these outcomes are important and necessary.

In case you haven't noticed,the majority of MSU students are extremely apathetic and don't care about much else besides the weekend. Often times, I am ashamed to call myself a student of this school. I'm happy more energy is being put into this. We need less big screen TV's that no one watches or uses (i.e, the brand new ones across from the Office of the Registrar) and new cars that security get to nap in (i.e., the doge charger and yes, I know a student security officer who admits to sleeping on the job) and more of what actually matters in a college - academics.
