Our students often seek a definite “yes or no,” but real answers are usually in a “gray area” somewhere between. To explore that area and make informed decisions, our students need to develop skills in scientific inquiry, critical thinking and analysis. Employers want to hire workforce-ready individuals with these skills. Graduates possessing these skills who are self-disciplined, responsible, productive and collaborative are highly sought after. Our responsibility as educators is to prepare these future employees for life-long learning.
