Undergraduate Student Learning Outcomes

The Liberal Studies Revision Steering Committee developed an overarching set of outcomes that all baccalaureate graduates should achieve, consistent with trends in general education, Middle States Commission on Higher Education standards, and the Association of American Colleges and Universities' Greater Expectations document. One of the assumptions underlying the revision process is that faculty share the responsibility for producing university graduates who are liberally educated.

Therefore, the LSRSC worked with the university community to re-conceptualize a curriculum that is coherent, relevant and meaningful for students, and implemented by a faculty who support the idea that expected liberal education outcomes occur over time and across the curriculum. A set of University Undergraduate Student Learning Outcomes that transcend disciplinary boundaries can provide a shared vision for aligning educational experiences in both liberal studies and in major coursework.

For a more thorough explanation of the rationale behind the revision project and the development of the Student Learning Outcomes documents, please see the Liberal Studies Revision FAQ.
