Program Learning Objectives


Program Learning Objectives (PLOs) are defined by the faculty to promote the clarity and coherence of the program and apply to all students in the program. The availability of PLOs provides students and others with the general goals of the major, while outlining the structure of the knowledge, skills, and values associated with the discipline. In the course of program review, academic programs report their PLOs and map them to the University Learning Objectives (ULOs)

Since the Cal Poly Academic Catalog is the official source of university information, and the department reviews catalog information on a regular basis, PLOs are to be listed with other program information in the catalog.
