Seattle University Learning Objectives/Outcomes
Assessment of Student Learning
Are we successfully carrying out the Seattle University educational mission? Seattle University faculty and staff, in dozens of undergraduate and graduate degree programs and over a dozen certificate programs, systematically assess student learning in order to answer this question. Staff in over a hundred support and service units carefully assess their area's effectiveness in order to learn how well they are contributing to the excellence of the educational mission. Our approach to education and assessment flows from our identity as a Jesuit institution. We are sustained by the legacy of Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. This legacy underscores a Jesuit way of educating and assessing that emphasizes continual reflection, discernment and review.
