The college Senate approved the College Level Learning Goals Policy on 12/2/2011.
Philosophy and Rationale
Growing out of SUNY Empire State College’s unique mission, the learning goals outlined below serve as a vital link between the college’s historical mission, the current context of rapid educational change, and the future of our institution in a global society where knowledge and learning remain urgently important. These statements encapsulate the values that we bring to our work with students, and they articulate our hopes for our graduates. We also believe it is our responsibility as educators to enter into collaborative relationships with future students, which requires transparency about our goals and values. Finally, by clearly stating these goals, we will be able to both reflect upon our students’ and our own success through a creative, collaborative and iterative assessment process that extends across multiple institutional levels.
Graduates of SUNY Empire State College will demonstrate competence in the following areas of learning, appropriate to their degree levels. At the graduate level, these goals will be incorporated as appropriate to the program of study.
