Institutional Learning Outcomes

NIACC Institutional Learning Outcomes

North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) has identified four areas that we believe every student who graduates from NIACC will need to be successful as a professional, regardless of academic program.

1. Communication

Learners will evaluate and apply effective use of information and ideas in written, oral, and visual forms of communication.

2. Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Learners will conduct research, evaluate information, analyze problems, and apply the results to construct appropriate responses to questions and/or problems.

3. Life Skills and Professionalism

Learners will develop skills  and behaviors necessary to be successful in ever-changing life and work environments.

4. Global Awareness

Learners will analyze the interconnected world in which they live, how various factors in one area can affect other areas, the existence and value of diverse perspectives, and the importance of respecting all human life in a global society.
