Roadmap & Annual Assessment

The Liberal Studies Roadmap provides a pathway to help students complete the degree quickly and efficiently.

The Liberal Studies Learning Objectives help students know what is expected from their coursework.

AAC&U's Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) VALUE rubrics:
The rubrics articulate fundamental criteria for each learning outcome, with performance descriptors demonstrating progressively more sophisticated levels of attainment. The rubrics are intended for institutional-level use in evaluating and discussing student learning, not for grading. The core expectations articulated in all 16 of the VALUE rubrics can and should be translated into the language of individual campuses, disciplines, and even courses. The utility of the VALUE rubrics is to position learning at all undergraduate levels within a basic framework of expectations such that evidence of learning can by shared nationally through a common dialog and understanding of student success.
