Campus-wide Learning Outcomes

What should undergraduates learn at PSU?

Portland State University strives to provide its students an educational experience based on the core values and unique strengths reflected in the following undergraduate learning outcomes. These campus-wide outcomes communicate the University’s priorities to prospective students, help current students understand the guiding principles behind their educational experiences, and provide a framework for campus-wide assessment of student learning. Through engaging with these outcomes in their broad-based general education experiences, in-depth intellectual explorations within their majors, and the opportunities they encounter outside the classroom through Student Affairs and extra-curricular activities, students will graduate from PSU prepared to contribute responsibly to society in the 21st century.  Use the menu to the left to explore individual learning outcomes.
