Communicate effectively through written, spoken, non-verbal, and creative means.
Navigate complex information by gathering, exploring, and assessing sources with adaptive and flexible thinking.
Originate in thought and action with imagination, confidence, creativity, and an innovative spirit.
Participate fully in the life of the community, collaborating, asking questions, initiating ideas, taking risks, and leading by example.
Relate with empathy, seeking to understand diverse perspectives while being mindful of the impact of actions and words on others and on the environment.
