Student Learning Outcomes

The Division of Student Affairs partners with Academic Affairs to promote and enhance student learning that occurs both within and outside of the classroom.  To focus their efforts, the Division created a set of seven learning outcomes, which were informed heavily by the pivotal document in the student affairs field, Learning reconsidered: A campus-wide focus on the student experience (NASPA/ACPA, 2004), which promotes holistic learning and the idea that the entire campus is a learning community. 

Learning outcomes are what we expect students to be able to do, know, or achieve as a result of their engagement.  Student Affairs strives to engage students in learning opportunities that support one or more of the seven learning outcomes, or a particular set of learning outcomes they have developed for a specific department or program.  Below are resources to assist Student Affairs staff in the development and assessment of learning outcomes.
