Student Outcomes for The Clarke Compass
Common good guiding principle
Clarke’s Compass helps students navigate their own personal and professional growth, leading toward success in the contemporary world. The student learning outcomes are grounded in a Catholic vision of education, particularly as we express it in the BVM Core Values of freedom, education, charity, and justice. The common good serves as an important unifying theme. The Compass outcomes integrate the liberal arts, essential academic and professional skills, experiential learning, and major courses of study in order to prepare students for whatever awaits them.
