New Student Counseling Department (NSCD) assists new and continuing students access a wide variety of counseling services to help plan for, adjust to, and succeed in college. These services can assist students in developing the necessary skills to effectively pursue educational and career goals.
Our programs are on a regular cycle of review, during which outcomes are updated and revised. For our Instructional side, Course SLOs are mapped to Program SLOs. Program SLOs are mapped to ILOs. Mappings and program information are recorded in reports in CurricUNET. Programs are also fully described in the catalog. For our Counseling side, Program Outcomes are mapped to ILOs as shown below:
Student Learning Outcome Goals:
New Student Counseling offers services in the form of new student
orientations, classes, individual counseling, and workshops. The
Department has goals for what it wants students to learn through
their participation of each service. The counseling and orientation sevices share goals which were chosen by the department as a whole. These goals are that students will be able to:
1. Navigate educational and student support services to enhance their success. (ILO I.2. Critical Thinking and Information Competency: Locate, evaluate, synthesize, and appropriately use multiple forms of information; ILO IV.1. Personal and Career Development: Identify and develop helpful resources and opportunities).
2. Make decisions related to their educational and personal goals. (ILO I.1. Critical Thinking and Information Competency: Apply critical and creative reasoning, including diverse perspectives, to address complex problems; ILO IV.2. Personal and Career Development: Demonstrate self-reflection and confidence).
Course-level SLOs are recorded in the official course outline of record in CurricUNET. Course outlines are on a regular cycle of review, during which class outcomes are updated and revised.
