Comprehensive Institutional Learning Outcomes (CILOs)

OCCC defines Comprehensive Institutional Learning Outcomes (CILOs) as "The knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes that all students in 2-year degree programs are expected to develop as a result of the intentional design and delivery of curriculum by College faculty."

The College has designated four Comprehensive Institutional Learning Outcomes:

  • Written and Oral Communication;
  • Cultural Awareness;
  • Problem-Solving Skills; and
  • Personal Responsibility

The breadth of a Comprehensive Institutional Learning Outcome means that the knowledge or skill set it represents is contributed to by a cross-disciplinary group of courses. Evaluation of student achievement of these comprehensive outcomes invites collaboration among faculty across disciplines and programs, providing the strongest opportunity for meaningful discussion, understanding of student learning, and program improvement.
