Viking Pathways: Voyage to Success

Making the Long Beach City College educational experience work better for students includes all of us – whether we work as counselors developing educational plans and exploring career options with students, or as faculty members teaching a class, or as staff members processing purchase orders and keeping the grounds beautiful.

National data indicates that students are taking too many units, spending too much money, which impacts their financial aid, and they are not graduating.

Overview

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

Long Beach City College’s assessment philosophy embraces the notion that the entire campus contributes to students’ mastery of institutional outcomes and learning outcomes in every course, degree, certificate, and educational pathway. Faculty and staff recognize that student learning requires more than mere memorization of information, and they work to ensure that students utilize their command of learned information to solve problems, demonstrate skills, and think critically.
