Co-Curricular Learning Outcomes (CCLOs) are defined as the knowledge, skills, and abilities students should learn in experiences outside of the classroom. As a result of multiple retreats, consultation, collaborative meetings, and research on best practices, The Student Affairs division has developed division wide student learning outcomes to serve as a foundation for co-curricular learning outcomes.
Co-Curricular Learning Outcomes (CCLOs)
Students will be able to communicate clearly in a variety of settings.
Students will be able to build community through involvement outside the classroom.

Students will be able to reach their goals.
Students will be able to use resources to navigate processes.
Annual Assessment Cycles
Each academic year, Student Affairs departments and co-curricular programs execute co-curricular assessment plans utilizing a variety of assessment methods that include rubrics, surveys, and quizzes. After collecting learning outcomes assessment data in Fall and Spring semesters, results are evaluated to drive improvements.

A Community of Practice
Beginning in the Summer of 2018, a small group of educational leaders embarked on a new commitment to assess and improve student learning in co-curricular programs and services. From that foundation, a collaborative network across Minnesota State system institutions was established to provide essential training, professional development, and resource sharing opportunities. Saint Paul College is proud to be serving as the lead institution within this growing partnership. To get involved or access the toolkit of resources, visit the
