Assessment and Student Learning has leadership responsibility for the development and implementation of strategies related to the enhancement of undergraduate student learning and the achievement of the university's undergraduate vision. The phrase "Integrated Core Learning" describes the University of Cincinnati's signature approach to undergraduate education. ICL was developed as the thoughtful integration of the general education core, major course work, undergraduate research, practicum, clinical placements, co-op and service-learning experiences, co-curricular activities, and faculty-guided reflection throughout the undergraduate curriculum. ICL underscores the University of Cincinnati's strengths and places them within a holistic framework for student learning from the first undergraduate year through graduation.
This office also provides leadership and support for the assessment of learning at all levels: course, program, general education, and institutional. This on-going process is essential to ensure that UC programs meet and exceed professional standards, continually strive for academic excellence, serve as best practices for our various accreditation requirements, and assure our students achieve their academic potential.
Specific initiatives include: strengthening General Education Core Program, Integrated Core Learning, Voluntary System of Accountability, Choose Ohio First, and curricular transformation for Semester Conversion 2012.
