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).

Inspired by the AACU Essential Learning Outcome Rubric, the University updated the ILOs in May of 2022.

In the course of their education at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, students will:

  1. Demonstrate the specialized knowledge, skills and perspectives in their chosen field or fields of study.
  2. Demonstrate broad and integrative knowledge across a variety of fields of study.
  3. Develop a variety of practical and intellectual skills, including inquiry and analysis, critical and creative thinking, oral and written communication, quantitative literacy, information literacy, and teamwork and problem-solving
  4. Be anchored in personal and social responsibility skills, as demonstrated by engaged citizenship with a commitment to equity and inclusion knowledge of environmental and cultural sustainability, intercultural knowledge, global learning, ethical reasoning, interdisciplinary, and foundations for lifelong learning.
  5. Engage in applied, collaborative and integrated learning in both academic and non-academic settings.
