Assurance of Learning


"Student learning is the central activity of higher education. Definition of learning expectations and assurance that graduates achieve learning expectations are key features of any academic program. The learning expectations derive from a balance of internal and external contributions to the definition of educational goals.  Members of the business community, students, and faculty members each contribute valuable perspectives on the needs of graduates."
