Learning Domains

Division of Student Engagement and Success, Strategic Planning & Assessment

A holistic, complete, education involves learning inside and outside of the classroom.  Student involvement in co-curricular activities is the key to obtaining a holistic education.  The Division of Student Engagement and Success offers hundreds of opportunities for students to get involved in activities such as student government, fraternities and sororities, cultural and social organizations, leadership programs, intramural sports and residence life.  Students may also participate in events and take advantage of services that are provided by counseling/health centers.  Students can customize their involvement to meet individual interests and to gain the knowledge, skills and experiences to prepare them for a life with purpose.

The Division has identified five main areas in which it seeks to facilitate student learning and growth.  These are known as the Student Engagement and Success Learning Domains.  They provide a framework to help you understand the way co-curricular involvement can enhance your college experience by teaching you to connect knowledge and apply critical thinking and problem solving skills.  These skills provide you the tools for a successful future of engaged lifelong learning.
