Valuing

Valuing is the ability to understand the moral and ethical values of a diverse society, and to understand that many courses of action are guided by value judgments about the way things ought to be. Students should recognize how values develop, how value judgments influence actions, and how informed decision-making can be improved through the consideration of personal values as well as the values of others. They should be able to make informed decisions through the identification of personal values and the values of others and through an understanding how such values develop. They should be able to analyze the ethical implications of choices made on the basis of these values.
