In creating the University-wide undergraduate learning outcomes, we drew on both internal and external resources.
- The Five Dimensions
- Features Characteristic of a SLU Jesuit Education (2011 document authored by SLU faculty)
- Student learning outcomes of SLU's undergraduate academic programs and core curricula, as well as outcomes identified by the Division of Student Development.
- Association of American Colleges and Universities' (AAC&U's) Liberal Education and America's Promise/LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes, a national, multi-year project in which hundreds of American colleges and universities have engaged in campus-wide and, in some cases, state-wide discussions about the necessary educational outcomes for all undergraduates in the 21st century. The result is a set of broadly-stated learning outcomes adopted and adapted by hundreds of institutions.
- AAC&U's VALUE Rubrics (rubrics for institution-wide evaluation of student developmental achievement of specified performance targets for each of the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes)
- The Lumina Foundation's Degree Qualifications Profile, another national initiative which is an effort to detail what are/should be the shared educational outcomes of any bachelor degrees in the U.S. (accordingly, this process is an analogue to international learning outcomes initiatives such as the Bologna - or "Tuning" - Project in Europe).
- HLC’s new (2012) Criteria for Accreditation and Assumed Practices
- George Kuh Presentation at SLU in Spring 2012
