**The AAC&U developed this listing through a multiyear dialogue with hundreds of colleges and universities about needed goals for student learning; analysis of a long series of recommendations and reports from the business community; and analysis of the accrediting requirements for engineering, business, nursing, and teacher education. The findings are documented in AAC&U publications: Greater Expectations: A New Vision for Learning as Nation Goes to College (2002), Taking Responsibility for the Quality of the Baccalaureate Degree (2004), and College Learning for the New Global Century (2007).
