PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY: ABILITY TO CONNECT CHOICES, ACTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES TO ETHICAL DECISION-MAKING

Today’s employers need people who can ​consider multiple options, make wise choices, and accept the consequences of those choices. Companies ​often embed ethical frameworks ​in institutional culture or company ethos. UTA uses the AAC&U personal responsibility ​rubric to evaluate student outcome attainment, measuring the following integral dimensions: striving for excellence; personal and academic integrity; contribute to a larger community; take seriously the perspectives of others and ethical and moral reasoning. ​Competence in Personal Responsibility equips students to make informed decision​s, take responsibility for consequences, and be self-aware of their own ethical framework so they can understand their decision​s and anticipate future decisions. The rubrics used by UTA to evaluate personal responsibility skills appear below, along with results reports from Core Curriculum Objective assessment activities here at UTA.
