General education at Cochise College creates opportunities for students to build the foundation of knowledge and skills necessary for lifelong success. It helps them enrich their quality of life by encouraging habits of mind that enable them to understand and value the world they live in and to contribute to its well-being.
Through its general education curriculum, Cochise College strives to instill into the learning process a sense of interconnectedness and wholeness. We value learning as an ongoing process. We value effective communication; aesthetic investigation, innovative solutions, and creative self-expression; critical thinking in problem solving; awareness of and respect for diversity; appropriate evaluation and application of information; and technological skills in information management and presentation. We believe these values lead to ethical, responsible social behavior. Our values are reflected in our general education outcomes.
