Student Learning Outcomes

The Mission of Clarkson College is to prepare students to professionally provide high quality, ethical, and compassionate health care services. With this in mind, program directors and faculty identified five important Student Success Skills, which include Communication, Critical Thinking, Technology, Professional Behavior and Diversity. These skills are the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes for the College and are measured within all departments on campus to provide evidence that students possess the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to become successful health care professionals. Student assessment is essential to ensure that our programs meet professional standards and all regional and program specific accreditation requirements. Assessment data also guides improvements to our programs, enabling us to continue toward student excellence both in academics and through the resources, we provide for a comprehensive College experience.
