The Five Dimensions of the SLU Experience are the framework adopted by the SLU community in the fall 2002 semester for student learning outcomes and assessment efforts.
The five dimensions flow from the University's Jesuit Catholic mission; are broad enough to encompass the diversity of the University's undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs; and offer the University community the flexibility to develop measurable student outcomes and assessment activities in a meaningful context.
The five dimensions express the University's expectations for student engagement in the SLU community. They communicate the University's hopes for students to develop both professionally and personally in the context of the mission.
The Five Dimensions in Practice: Sample Indicators of Engagement provide examples of student engagement for each of the five dimensions. These indicators are examples only; they are not comprehensive or exhaustive. Their purpose is to offer ideas for positioning student outcomes within the framework of the five dimensions.
