Institutional Learning Outcomes


NewSchool faculty has identified five overarching institutional learning outcomes (ILOs) that apply to students in all programs. NewSchool’s graduates should be able to:

ILO 1. Use critical thinking in the formation, analysis, and evaluation of ideas.
ILO 2. Demonstrate creativity in problem solving.
ILO 3. Demonstrate knowledge of diverse cultures and environments.
ILO 4. Communicate effectively through written, oral, and visual media.
ILO 5. Demonstrate professional and ethical practices.

The ILOs are designed to be universal, learning oriented, measurable, and distinct. Interpretation of these ILOs allows our diversified programs to link to the institution and to each other, while maintaining the character and academic rationale of the specific field.
