Institutional Assessment

UW-Green Bay’s Institutional Learning Outcomes

In 2017, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay adopted a set of Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) with the purpose of more clearly aligning the mission-level outcome identified by the MLLO Project with the University’s General Education Program as well as its academic program and co-curricular activities. The ILOs adopted by the University were based on the AAC&U’s LEAP Initiative and Lumina’s Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP

Institutional Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of their education at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, students will have:

  1. demonstrated the specialized knowledge, skills and perspectives in their chosen field or fields of study.
  2. demonstrated broad and integrative knowledge across a variety of fields of study.
  3. developed a variety of intellectual skills, including analytic inquiry, information literacy, diverse perspectives, ethical reasoning, quantitative fluency, and communicative fluency.
  4. engaged in applied and collaborative learning activities, in both academic and non-academic settings.
  5. demonstrated engaged citizenship in the United States and the world.
  6. developed an understanding of and appreciation for environmental and cultural sustainability.
  7. demonstrated the ability to identify and address problems from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The University Assessment Committee is in the process of revising UW-Green Bay's Institutional Learning Outcomes to ensure that they more closely adhere to our mission and to better reflect the institutional values that we adhere to.

In conjunction with those revised outcomes, we have decided to use the AACU Value Rubrics to create consistency in relation to how the outcomes are assessed.

For our first cycles of Institutional Assessment, we will assess Oral and Written Communication and Qualitative Literacy on a three-year cycle.

This is the assessment schedule:
2021-2022: CSET new cycle
2022-2023: CHESW new cycle; CSET intervention plan
2024-2025: 1/2 CAHSS and CSOB new cycle, CHESW intervention plan, CSET reassessing
2025-2026: 1/2 CAHSS and CSET new cycle; 1/2 CAHSS and CSOB intervention; CHESW reassessing
2026-2027: CHESW new cycle; 1/2 CAHSS and CSET intervention; 1/2 CAHSS and CSOB reassessing
