Program Mission Statements and SLOs

The Outcomes Assessment Process enables each program to plan strategies to serve its students. A program's mission statement provides a general description of the focus, values, and purpose of an instructional program and is developed through the consideration of the program's student learning outcomes (SLOs). A program's SLOs are a means of assessing intended student learning and tend to emphasize integrating skills into an interrelated set. They often put more emphasis on real world applications that provide a bridge to the student's next experience on the job or in upper-division study.

An important part of outcomes assessment is sharing the program mission and learning outcomes with students. This helps students have a better understanding of the direction of their education and be more engaged in the learning process. A program's mission statement and SLOs can be found on curriculum guides and in the web catalog
