Student Learning Outcomes

The college has committed to infusing the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Cycle process into program review, resource allocation, and Institutional Assessment Planning (IAP). The Student Learning Outcomes process is a foundational element of the six-year planning process driven by a college wide culture of inquiry. This culture of inquiry reaches beyond SLOs to all aspects of the college planning process including student services and instruction. Additional information on institutional planning in relation to SLOs can be found at: Student Learning Outcomes - Institutional Planning.
