Institutional Learning Outcomes

Institutional Learning Outcomes Project

Institutional learning outcomes describe the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes UNC envisions for all students.  Our institutional learning outcomes articulate qualities that all college-educated people should possess as well as the unique characteristics that define graduates of the University of Northern Colorado.

UNC’s current institutional learning outcomes were developed nearly 20 years ago.  In our recent HLC self-study, we identified updating our institutional learning outcomes as an area for future action.  In response to this finding, Provost Wacker charged the University Assessment Council to lead the campus in revising our current institutional learning outcomes through a process that

  • Is inclusive and transparent;
  • Offers broad opportunities for input from faculty, staff, and students; and
  • Results in a set of clearly articulated learning goals that reflect the values and priorities of the UNC community.

We have created this webpage as a forum for informing the campus about the process and providing information about opportunities to contribute.  In the coming months, there will be opportunities to provide feedback through surveys, open forums, and on this website.  You may also contact any member of the University Assessment Council if you have questions or would like to provide input.
