Mastermind Marathon

Critical Thinking Race!

The Assessment Committee has once again partnered with Student Life for our sixth annual Critical Thinking Race. The focus this year is Critical Thinking.

What does that mean? Your race stop simply needs to make a connection to critical thinking. Your group may interpret what that means for your program, school, organization, or career field.
