  • Student Learning Outcomes

    In order to assess our programs and practices, student affairs identified four critical areas that our work contributes to the institutional educational goals and learning outcomes.

    The resources helped shape and define the following domains, which now serve as the model for the Office of Student Affairs learning outcomes:

    Co-Curricular Learning and Critical Thinking

    Students who participate in Student Affairs programs will use interactions and experiences outside of the classroom to promote intellectual growth and be able articulate the connections between their personal exploration, co-curricular experiences, and their Regis education.

    Relationship Building and Healthy Living

    Students who participate in Student Affairs programs will be able to engage in conversations and activities that encourage and facilitate identification of healthy relationships and construct lifestyles that are congruent with self-care, including physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual wellness.

    Service to the Dear Neighbor

    Students who participate in Student Affairs programs will demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to social justice and civic engagement by participating in positive social change through: personal leadership; service; and social responsibility; and by reflecting on the connection to the charism of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.

    Student Formation

    Students who participate in Student Affairs programs will develop a wide range of skills and competencies that may be integrated into everyday life and the ability to manage one’s own identity formation, allowing students to create personal short and long-term goals.
