Learning Outcomes

Institutional Learning Outcomes

The mission of Kalamazoo College is to prepare its graduates to better understand, live successfully within, and provide enlightened leadership to a richly diverse and increasingly complex world.  The entirety of the Kalamazoo College student experience, including deep knowledge in a chosen academic discipline, supports this mission.  Institutional learning outcomes also advance this mission by enabling graduates to:

  • Communicate effectively
  • Address complex problems
  • Collaborate successfully
  • Demonstrate intercultural competency

Departmental Learning Outcomes

Every department and program with a major has developed and periodically updates an assessment plan that includes clearly-stated learning outcomes and provides processes for assessing these outcomes. Plans are published here so that departments/programs can learn from each other about assessment of student learning. Each department/program should regularly review and revise its assessment plan as part of on-going assessment activity.
