1) Below are your program's student learning outcomes (SLOs). Please update as needed.

The program aims to develop scientists able to perform independent research with moderate supervision in a subdiscipline of chemistry and to present the research results orally and in writing to an audience of peers. The extent to which this goal is reached is assessed with the following SLO's:

a) progress reports to the student's committee;

b) completion of 18 credits of advanced course work;

c) presentation of background for research project and of research results in an open forum;

d) publication of research results in peer reviewed journals.

2) Your program's SLOs are published as follows. Please update as needed.

The Chemistry Department has recently undergone a change in leadership, with a new Department Chair and Associate Chair assuming their positions in January 2012. In addition, Chemistry is presently undergoing staffing changes, including the recruitment of a new position to assist with assessment. This new position will be a resource in upcoming assessment activities at the undergraduate and graduate programs.
