Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and the Library as Co-Curricular Program

HLC Criteria for Accreditation
4.B. The institution demonstrates a commitment to educational achievement and improvement through ongoing assessment of student learning.

1. The institution has clearly stated goals for student learning and effective processes for assessment of student learning and achievement of learning goals.

2. The institution assesses achievement of the learning outcomes that it claims for its curricular and co-curricular programs.

3. The institution uses the information gained from assessment to improve student learning.

4. The institution’s processes and methodologies to assess student learning reflect good practice, including the substantial participation of faculty and other instructional staff members.

Do you define the Library as a co-curricular program?

If so, what student learning outcomes have you developed in your Library? How do you measure them? How do you use student learning data to improve services?
