This site offers a variety of tools and resources in support of the Assessment of Student Learning (ASL) processes at California State University Dominguez Hills and as a service to the campus community.

Institutional Learning Outcomes

CSUDH mission is to provide education, scholarship and service that are, by design, accessible and transformative. Through a strong selection of academic programs that blend theory and practice, broadly educate students in the liberal arts and sciences, and develop students’ abilities to absorb, understand, evaluate and communicate information and knowledge, CSUDH is committed to making a positive impact on students’ individual lives and the region at large. The CSU tradition of teaching excellence lies at the heart of students’ educational experience at CSUDH.

Institutional learning outcomes are those measurable skills and competencies which are embedded within every aspect of the CSUDH experience. Student achievement of institutional learning outcomes is assessed within their academic and co-curricular experiences. Having completed general education and disciplinary specific curriculum at the baccalaureate level, a CSUDH graduate will:

  • Think critically and creatively and apply qualitative and quantitative reasoning to address complex challenges and everyday problems locally and globally. (Critical Thinking)
  • Communicate clearly and collaborate effectively in a range of social, academic, and professional contexts, both orally and in writing. (Communication)
  • Locate, evaluate, and effectively use information in pursuit of discovery as preparation for continuous lifelong learning. (Information Literacy)
  • Demonstrate expertise in a specialized discipline of study and the ability to integrate its ideas, methods, theory and practice. (Disciplinary Proficiency)
  • Develop knowledge of diversity and multicultural competencies and ways to use that knowledge to promote equity and justice at local and global levels. (Engaged Citizenry)
