Institutional Learning Outcomes
The University’s Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) represent the knowledge, skills, and abilities that students are expected to develop through their experiences at the university regardless of their course of study or level of degree. The ILOs are designed to guide the development of student learning outcomes and to provide a framework for decisions in the colleges. The ILOs were developed by a multi-disciplinary group of faculty and students with input from other academic leaders. They provide the foundation for alignment of the university’s curriculum with the core competencies of the WASC Senior College and University Commission and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
