Student Learning Outcomes

Research clearly indicates that as students become involved in activities/employment on campus, this experience leaves an indelible imprint on both their learning and development. Students are our responsibility and it is through this responsibility that we will ensure that their University experience is truly educational. We see ourselves as educators and because we are educators, we provide the students with numerous learning opportunities (i.e. as leaders, employees, volunteers, etc.) Students will experience these learning opportunities as a result of interacting with our staff and by being an active participant in our programs as well as working in/using our facilities.
