The nexus of both instruction and student services Student Learning Outcomes is at the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes level which encompasses the entire college.

SCC’s SLO Philosophy Statement was developed by a cross-constituency SLO advisory group with feedback from the campus community. It was officially adopted by the Academic Senate in Spring, 2005. The SLO assessment process provides faculty, classified staff, and students with both formative and summative feedback on student learning. Many instructional and student services areas have developed meaningful SLO assessment plans and are currently engaged at various stages of the assessment cycle.
