Institutional Learner Outcomes
Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) represent both curricular and co-curricular efforts to enhance student responses to personal, professional and intellectual opportunities and challenges. Our ILOs define what UTTC graduates are expected to know, be able to do and value because of their general education, program studies and co-curricular activities.
General Education Philosophy Statement
UTTC is committed to providing opportunities for students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to graduate and/or the academic foundation to continue their education, pursue a career and be leaders among tribal nations.
To meet this educational goal, all UTTC programs encompass not only program-specific learning outcomes, but also general education learning outcomes in the areas of
communication, critical thinking, quantitative and scientific reasoning, and personal and social responsibility. These learning outcomes are taught and assessed in classes, labs, field experiences and co-curricular activities. Personal and social responsibility is reinforced within the UTTC Student Code of Conduct and the campus community.
