Student learning is at the very heart of our purpose and avocation. Since 2006 the College has embarked on a very aggressive campaign to establish a comprehensive, faculty-driven outcomes assessment model. 

During this time we:

  • Sent our initial team of faculty and administration to Alverno College for Student Learning Outcomes training
    (June of 2006)
  • Formed the Outcomes Assessment Team, or OAT (July of 2006)
  • Conducted our initial Faculty Training in assessing student learning (August of 2006)
  • Defined the College’s Eight Institutional Abilities (November of 2006)
  • Implemented a comprehensive plan to improve student success in the sciences (November of 2007)
  • Formally adopted the College’s eight abilities (February of 2009)
  • Completed Phase I of our Student Learning Outcomes assessment process, aligning program, division and degree outcomes to our eight institutional abilities (May of 2010)
  • Completed Phase III of our Student Learning Outcomes assessment process, aligning course objectives to program, division, and degree outcomes (May of 2011)
  • Initiated the timeline for Phase II of our Student Learning Outcomes assessment process where we will assess program, division, and degree outcomes by our institutional abilities (May of 2011)
