At North Carolina Central University, teaching, supported by research, is the primary focus of the university as affirmed in the university's mission statement. Accordingly, student success is the top priority. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness in concert with the Office of University Accreditation engage the university in a comprehensive approach to assessment of educational programs and academic and administrative services. The focus is to enhance student learning which is measured through defined outcomes that address student competence.
Student learning outcomes provide a means for assessing student performance in individual courses. Distinctively, program learning outcomes are related to degree attainment. Both types of outcomes suggest what a student is able to do upon completion of a class or what a graduate is able to do upon completion of a degree program.
The following departmental program learning outcomes are organized alphabetically within their respective colleges or schools.
