What are the Division's Learning Outcomes?

The Division of Student Affairs understands student learning as the students’ ability to demonstrate competencies in the following areas: informed reasoning, effective communication, personal responsibility, inclusion and multicultural competence, well-being and community and civic engagement. We understand student learning as dynamic, in motion within the developing individual. In addition, the division’s learning outcomes are not independent, but interactive. For example, informed reasoning (how one reasons about controversial issues) affects inclusion and multicultural competence (which requires seeing more than one perspective), and shapes how one constructs general well-being (attitudes towards best health practices). Finally, at any one point in time, some outcomes are more salient than others (e.g., civic responsibility may be heightened while taking a class with a service learning component).
