UW Oshkosh Civic Learning Outcomes
Faculty at UW-Oshkosh have used this set of civic engagement learning outcomes, adopted from AAC&U’s own Dr. Caryn McTighe Musil’s 2009 work on civic engagement in higher education, in the design and assessment process for the university’s Quest III courses. Quest III is the culminating educational experience in UW-Oshkosh’s general education program. In Quest III students are introduced “to civic action, community partners, and real-world challenges while completing a campus or community experience related” to their final “signature question.”
At UW-Oshkosh, this tool has proven to be attractive to faculty because it is applicable to a wide variety of disciplines.
