    Mission Statement

    Student Learner Outcome (SLO)
    Student Learner Outcome represents the most essential things that students should know and be able to do by the time they graduate. Each SLO represents not only what students should know, but how they approach learning, and how they relate acquired knowledge to the world around them. Each SLO is embedded in all courses and provides a focus and continuity for the students learning experience.
