Our Mission Statement drives our student learning outcomes (SLOs) at every level. Our six institutional SLOs, (symbolized by the acronym WISDOM) unpack the core values implicit in our Mission Statement. These in turn lead to both our Academic Program and our Co-Curricular SLOs. We have identified Foundational skills that provide the basis for curricular and co-curricular SLOs, and these in turn feed into the General Education SLOs that support our Academic Program SLOs.
The Academic Dean's office provides guidelines for teachers and others needing to write student learning outcomes, and guidelines for writing a quality course syllabus are provided.
The alignment of our SLOs is illustrated below:
Pacific Union College is a Seventh-day Adventist learning community offering an excellent Christ-centered education that prepares its students for productive lives of useful human service and uncompromising personal integrity.
"Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding" (Proverbs 3:13)
PUC graduates will make mature, independent choices integrating the needs of body, mind, and spirit.
PUC graduates will live lives based on the highest ethical standards.
Service and Stewardship
PUC graduates will practice the Biblical imperatives to serve humanity, resist injustice, and care for the created world.
PUC graduates will display Intercultural competence and global understanding as informed members of a dynamic global church and world community.
Our Adventist Heritage
PUC graduates will understand and value the major tenets of Seventh-day Adventist Christian thought, including the blessing and significance of the Sabbath.
Maintaining Lifelong Learning
PUC graduates will continue to practice the intellectual skills and curiosity necessary to learn and grow creatively throughout life.
The SLOs for each academic Major are included on the Curriculum Guidesheets. These can be found at: http://www.puc.edu/academics/degrees-programs
The student learning outcomes for the General Education program can be found in the College Catalog . Formal SLOs for each section are being formulated as the systematic review of the GE program progresses. To date, the first three sections of the GE program have been reviewed and the SLOs for those sections are as follows:
I. Foundations of Learning
III. Arts and Humanities
III. History and Social Sciences
