“To ensure we are doing what we say we are doing”
Union Bible College’s mission is to prepare servant leaders who are committed to the propagation of scriptural holiness and who change the world with the unchanging Word. The college is an organization with many operational units contributing, directly and indirectly, to ensure that students meet their higher education learning goals. Measuring the effectiveness of fulfilling these goals by assessing the quality of student learning experiences provides the decision-making data necessary to achieving success. To affect an institution-wide culture of positive change, it is essential that the Institutional Research Office assesses student learning with the goal of continuously improving the quality of the student’s learning experiences.
Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) Statements exist for all academic programs and may be found below.
