Assessing the WSU Mission

Mission Related Outcomes Grid

Revised 09/14/01

Student Outcomes:

Weber State University faculty and staff will graduate students who are effectively prepared for immediate employment, additional education and/or life in general. Specifically, graduating students will be able to demonstrate competence in the following areas:

  1. a broad knowledge base, both within and across disciplines (KNOWLEDGE);
  2. life-long learning skills (LIFE-LONG);
  3. personal connections with faculty, staff, other students and the broader community (CONNECTIONS);
  4. problem solving, independent and critical thinking skills (THINKING);
  5. respect for differing views (RESPECT).

These five student outcomes are the responsibility of various areas within the University as noted in the following grid (an "X" indicates that an area, overall, has responsibility for teaching students that outcome):

More detail on these five university-wide student outcomes with regard to specific departments and offices can be found later on this page. Individual members of the University Committee on Assessment reviewed the outcome statements which were prepared by departments and offices within their constituency areas. Based on this review, the following grids were prepared to identify when department or office student outcomes matched the student outcomes identified above (a match is noted with an "X"). The assumption is that data are being gathered, or will be gathered, on these student learning outcomes by that department or office, and that these data are used for improving the courses or services provided by those offices.
