Common Competencies


Competencies are defined as the expected content, concepts and skills to be mastered by a student in a particular course. The academic discipline groups are made up of public, private and tribal college faculty members. These common competencies are reviewed by the academic discipline groups at least once every three years. For more information, contact Lisa Johnson, Director of Academic Affairs, 701-328-4143.
