The last required outcome is the student’s outcome, or the Self Outcome. Each student comes to the university BEING a certain way, based on their personal and professional histories.
If the Student leaves SMC University remaining the same as when they arrived then the university, its leaders, deans, professors and staff have not adequately performed their mission. Thus, the Self Outcome challenges each student to move through the stages of: Being to Knowing to Becoming more than was expected at the outset of their academic journey. This process is a partnership between the student and the University. Each class allows for reflection of who the student is, what the student does, how the student thinks, and what has driven the student’s self-perspective to create new boundaries and new discovery.
