Table for Two: Using One VALUE Rubric to Assess Core Competencies and the GE Simultaneously

The foundational values of Pepperdine University’s mission are purpose, service, and leadership. These overarching values are found in both the academic and co-curricular programs. Our integrative assessment approach to the five core competencies has allowed us to examine oral communication within our mission at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
