Last Chance to Complete the Institutional Learning Outcomes Survey

The deadline to submit your feedback for Pepperdine’s institutional learning outcomes survey is Friday, June 30, 2023.

This important University initiative was developed by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) in partnership with Pepperdine’s Advancement of Student Learning Council (ASLC) to gather feedback on their proposed revisions to Pepperdine’s institutional learning outcomes (ILOs). ILOs are designed to help guide individual departments and disciplines in the development of their programs’ learning outcomes and represent the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that all Pepperdine students are expected to acquire upon completion of their degree. The revisions would reduce the current number of ILOs from nine to six while maintaining the institutional values of purpose, service, and leadership and its core commitments to knowledge and scholarship, faith and heritage, and community and global understanding. The survey presents the current language listed on the University’s ILOs and requests feedback on each one. 

Survey responses will be reviewed in fall 2023 and the OIE will present a final draft of the ILOs to various decision-making bodies of the University, such as the ASLC, the Board of Regents - Academic Affairs, and the University Planning Committee, among others. In spring 2024 the final ILOs will be officially announced on the OIE website and adopted in program learning outcomes, curriculum map templates, and others. By fall 2024 the OIE will adopt the new ILOs in assessment reports and introduce an ILO section in program reviews. A comprehensive standalone ILO report will be available in fall 2025. 

Help contribute to the University’s ILOs and share your survey responses no later than Friday, June 30, 2023.
