Program: Core Integrated Learning Program Code: (CIL)
Program Faculty: All Campus Faculty
The associate degree programs pursue three central educational outcomes: professional preparedness, academic preparedness and community/societal awareness. We attain these outcomes, in part, by creating opportunites for learning through caring relationships and interdisciplinary collaboration. Courses in Core Integrated Learning (CIL) have been designed to provide both the content and the learning processes in which students can become caring professionals. Content has been chosen to assure that students will have an opportunity to become better practitioners by engaging with content that is central to the practice of healthcare and human services today. This content has a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences (ethics, communication, systems theory, sociology, etc.) and is applied to healthcare and human service practice. Processes have been designed that provide students the opportunity to have an intensive, focused learning experience with interdisciplinary student and faculty groups.
