The Core Competencies/General Education outcomes were written and approved by faculty committees.

Each academic program has identified specific student learning outcomes that each graduate of that program is expected to master. 



Each course has stated student learning outcomes that serve not only the course but also the academic program. Direct evidence is used to assess course SLO’s annually, and every 5 years the course is audited to ensure compliance with PA Code Chapter 335.
