Guidelines for review

The Institutional Learning Outcomes will be reviewed by the Academic Senate three years from their effective date (Spring 2018), by which time the Assessment Committee will consider the implications of the ILOs for

  • graduate programs,
  • co-curricular environments,
  • general education (with the General Education Committee), and
  • integrated co-curricular and academic activities, e.g., health and wellness.

Adopted by the Academic Senate on December 8, 2014
