(local-ish example) Avenues NYC:
We will graduate students who are accomplished in the academic skills one would expect; at ease beyond their borders; truly fluent in a second language; good writers and speakers one and all; confident because they excel in a particular passion; artists no matter their field; practical in the ways of the world; emotionally unafraid and physically fit; humble about their gifts and generous of spirit; trustworthy; aware that their behavior makes a difference in our ecosystem; great leaders when they can be, good followers when they should be; on their way to well-chosen higher education; and, most importantly, architects of lives that transcend the ordinary.
Bena, Heidi and Allison example:
- Seek to investigate challenging contemporary global and local issues by pursuing questions or a line of thinking.
- Use design thinking and other processes to develop solutions, findings, prototypes, performances, and media.
- Navigate through diverse sources and perspectives to make discerning and thoughtful judgments.
- Generate, enrich, and craft communication through the strategic use of evidence and command of language.
- Share stories, ideas, and points of view to engage others to think interdependently and potentially act collectively
- Think flexibly, take responsible risks, and listen with understanding and empathy as they engage with the world
