  • the ability to collaborate effectively as a member of a group 
  • the ability to access information from varied sources, analyze and evaluate information and ideas, ask meaningful questions, and generate informed opinions, reasoned answers, and creative solutions 
  • knowledge of the historical, political, and economic issues that have shaped the world we live in today 
  • an understanding of various cultures and perspectives and a respect for diverse views and ideas 
  • knowledge of our nation's founding documents, civic institutions, and political processes 
  • a commitment to core democratic values and a desire to be an informed, engaged participant in our political system
