Student Learning Outcomes

Background

During Academic Year 2011-12, the SADAC committee (now Assessment Team) from the Division of Student Affairs developed divisional Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs). From the perspective of the committee, it was necessary to connect departmental SLOs within the Division of Student Affairs to Cal Poly Pomona’s University Learning Outcomes (ULOs).

Divisional Student Learning Outcomes were developed through a comprehensive review of ULOs and the identification of specific contributions that the Division of Student Affairs, through its programs and services, makes to student learning and success. The Student Affairs Vice President and lead team approved the adoption and distribution of these outcomes to all divisional staff. Staff in the division were asked to identify which of these SLOs were aligning with their programs and services, and to incorporate them into their assessment efforts and reporting. This practice supports the Division of Student Affairs culture of inquiry and evidence.
