2009 Committee on Institutional Educational Objectives

Update: the Senate passed undergraduate learning objectives in 2012, various assessment projects have been completed on the undergraduate ILOs and General Education learning, and an Institutional Learning Objectives Implementation Committee was formed.

In 2009, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (OVCAA) convened the committee on Institutional Educational Objectives. The group met to formalize the undergraduate principles of the baccalaureate at UH Manoa. The Assessment Office facilitated their meetings. In several meetings, the committee reviewed the strategic academic documents of Manoa (e.g., the Institutional Proposal) and the committee has examined the AACU’s Essential Learning Outcomes as well as outcomes from other institutions such as IUPUI. At 5/12/09 meeting, the committee worked in small groups to discuss and propose possible institutional educational objectives. These were submitted to the Faculty Senate Executive Committee in fall 2009.
