The mission of the Office of Academic Affairs at Saint Augustine's University is to create, implement, and assess learning that embraces and promotes the mission, goals, and objectives of Saint Augustine’s University. The mission is achieved through academic policies that facilitate students learning through the mastery of core competencies that are transparent, transferable, and transportable. The core competencies are the basis of the Transformative Education Program (TEP).
In keeping with the institutional goals, Academic Affairs prepares students for graduate and professional studies, or employment through a transformative education program built on nine broad transferable sets of skills and a tenth competency that reflects the culmination of these skills. These core competencies (communication, critical thinking, identity, wellness, STEM and quantitative literacy, civic engagement, global perspective, servant leadership and teamwork, innovation, creativity, and artistic literacy) are abilities that all fields of study require to be an effective leader and contributor. The last competency, the capstone encounter, represents an experience or experiences that build on many of the earlier competencies in a culminating manner that helps to define the signature Saint Augustine’s University student. Core competencies ensure that a well-rounded signature student is developed and celebrated within their major field of study, as well as inside and outside the classroom.
The signature Saint Augustine’s University graduate will be able to demonstrate the following defined competencies.
