Student Learning Outcomes
Aligned with the University and the Division of Student Affairs mission statements, the Division of Student Affairs at Concordia University Irvine developed measurable Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) to ensure our programs and services are purposeful and meaningful to our students. The SLO’s exist to provide depth for students engaged in our programs and services and, moreover, to ensure intentional learning. The following tenets were used as a foundation in developing the SLO’s:
