Social and Emotional Competence
Sedere, Upali M.
Online Submission, Keynote address given at the Convocation of Rajarat University (6th, Colombo, Sri Lanka, Sep 28, 2005)
Emotional quality of university students is a major concern for university authorities, parents and the society in general. In the recent past many unethical and violent incidences have happened in our universities. Students selected to Universities are intellectually smarter than the students admitted a decade ago, yet performance, behavior and the general outlook of university graduates do not show that. The recent educational research also indicates that. The "Emotionally Smart" oppose to "Intellectually Smart" is a topic in discussion. This convocational address to the graduating student is an important reminder that success does not depend on intellectual smartness alone, unless one is also emotionally smart.
