Educational Plan and Assessment
A key element of the Student Life Division's mission statement is to "design, facilitate, and inspire beyond-the-class learning experiences and environments." One way the division seeks to fulfill this mandate is to provide educational initiatives targeted toward four major learning outcomes. In addition to departmental and inter-departmental annual goals, the Student Life Division as a whole employs a 4-year cycle to address the four major learning outcomes:
Institutional Learning Outcomes
1. Diversity and Global Engagement (2017-2018)
|2. Christian Understanding, Practices and Affections (2018-2019)|
Divisional Learning Outcomes
|3. Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (2015-2016)|
|4. Physical and Emotional Health (2019-2020)|
White papers written by teams of student life staff serve as a starting point for the outcome that is being addressed in a particular year.
- Diversity and Global Engagement
- Christian Understanding, Practices, and Affections (CUPA)
- Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement
- Physical and Emotional Health

Annual Assessment Reports
The Student Life Division submits an annual assessment report to the Program Review Committee of the college. These reports and the responses from the Program Review Committee are provided below.
In 1996 the Student Life Division initiated a commitment to external reviews. An external review is a process where two colleagues from other respected programs from campuses across the country are invited to join a Westmont student life member and faculty member to conduct a 2-day review of an individual department. The feedback from these reviews has helped us improve our effectiveness in meeting learning outcomes, improve services, and identify resource priorities.
The external reviews are provided as links below for the following departments and years.
