Aligning Outcomes and Planning Assessment

Outcomes are the heart of everything that we do and should exist for every level of functioning in the Division of Student Affairs. Divisional learning outcomes provide a birds-eye perspective of the Division whereas unit-level outcomes provide the guiding vision for each program and service. Individual programs and services have outcomes that shape the design of every activities the students participate in.
