In summer 2009, a working group consisting of five LERT members planned an approach to mapping the current curriculum at UW Oshkosh against the Essential Learning Outcomes (ELO) The ELO’s were defined by the group and three levels of student capability were defined (Beginning, Developing, and Proficient) to be applied to each learning outcome. The group also developed a method to capture this data.
The Student Compact has seen significant growth this past year, which has culminated in the grand opening of the Student Success Center (formerly known as the Elmwood Commons). The four primary units receiving differential tuition funding are now permanently housed in the Student Success Center: Undergraduate Academic Advising, Career Services, Counseling Center, and the Center for Academic Resources, along with the Writing Center.
The University’s greatest strength in the area of support for research and teaching is the Faculty Development Center, which provides assistance for faculty research and teaching.
