Student Learning Outcomes

Academic assessment starts with developing the outcomes we want students to achieve.  All UW-Whitewater students seeking a bachelor’s degree are expected to achieve UW-Whitewater’s Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) through their studies in general education, their major and minor, their elective courses, and through experiences gained in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and High-Impact Practices (HIPS).  These outcomes are the same as the Essential Learning Outcomes created by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).

Students are also expected to achieve outcomes specific to their degree program majors and minors.  These Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are statements of what a student will know or be able to do once they have completed a program.
