When we talk at Eastern Kentucky University about student learning outcomes, the conversation involves not just a handful of top administrators, but the entire campus community. Specific learning outcomes are embedded throughout the University’s Strategic Plan, college plans, program plans, general education and accreditation efforts and tracked with the latest technology. But the best evidence of our commitment is when faculty members come together in their own academic areas for an annual day-long, campus-wide Assurance of Learning Day, which allows them to reflect and brainstorm with colleagues about program strengths and weaknesses, learning outcomes and changes that might enhance learning.

In 2014 the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) chose EKU as one of three institutions across the nation to receive recognition for outstanding institutional practice with regard to student learning outcomes.  A summary of the award application can be viewed below.
