DACC is one of four community colleges in the New Mexico State University system. General education courses are designated system-wide by the letter “G.” Assessment of general education, however, is conducted campus-wide and is not limited to G courses. Essential Student Learning Outcomes describe what a DACC student will know upon graduation. These skills are assessed in both general education courses and in career/technical courses.
DACC values creative, flexible thinking and the ability to appreciate and respect diverse viewpoints. General Education at DACC provides a broad foundation of knowledge, preparing students for an ever-changing global society. Students in career-technical fields and those transferring to four-year institutions learn and develop skills that transcend disciplines. Essential Student Learning Outcomes are set by the NM Higher Education Department. Content areas and essential skills include:
