To cultivate assessment activities throughout the University, the University Assessment Committee (UAC) has developed three plans to satisfy the unique needs of functional units within the University. R.U. Learning I was developed to assess the Regis Nine (ILOs) among degree-granting programs within the five Colleges. R.U. Learning II was developed to assess the Regis Nine and/or the Key Values in Jesuit Education among co-curricular units. R.U. Learning III was developed to assess the Key Values in Jesuit Education and/or professional standards among the operational units.
The Regis Nine: Our Institutional Learning Outcomes
The Regis Nine are Regis University’s institution-wide learning outcomes. We are committed to these nine outcomes as an ideal in the formation and education of our students.
The Regis Nine encompass the knowledge, skills, and values that we believe are fundamental to the personal and professional growth of our students, employees, and community.
At Regis University, we seek to educate the whole person (cura personalis) in three important ways: teaching academic content (knowledge-based learning), developing practical skills and abilities for use in the "real world" (skill-based learning), and instilling a commitment to leadership, service, and ethical and social responsibility (value-based education).
We expect students to exhibit the Regis Nine at an appropriate level throughout their academic and extracurricular endeavors at Regis University.
Similarly, continuous quality improvement efforts in our administrative and academic support units are reflective of the extent to which employees have integrated the Regis Nine in their daily work.
||The Regis Nine
||· Knowledge of a discipline or content area
· Knowledge of diverse cultures, perspectives, and belief systems
· Knowledge of arts, sciences, and humanities
||· Ability to think critically
· Ability to communicate effectively
· Ability to use contemporary technology
||· Commitment to ethical and social responsibility
· Commitment to leadership and service to others
· Commitment to learning as a lifelong endeavor
The Regis Nine involves a combination of knowledge, skills, and values; each is equally important. In the Regis University educational model, one’s commitment to ethical and social responsibility is equal in value to one’s knowledge and skills.
