The mission of Santa Rosa Junior College states:
SRJC passionately cultivates learning through the creative, intellectual, physical, social, emotional, aesthetic and ethical development of our diverse community.
One way that SRJC carries out its mission is to offer a wide range of General Education courses as part of the Associate degree and transfer program. These Liberal Arts and Sciences courses do far more than meet requirements of a major. They provide avenues for the development of broad, integrative knowledge and abilities that distinguish a college education, preparing the “whole student” for the complex social interactions, workplace problem-solving, and civic engagement that extend beyond the academic life.
The GE Student Learning Outcomes relate to SRJC’s Institutional Learning Outcomes and also include more specific degree-level SLOs.
Upon completion of the General Education courses within the Associates degree or transfer program, students will be able to:
Present substantially error-free prose in both argumentative and narrative forms to identified audiences.
Listen actively; speak coherently and effectively; and practice respectful interpersonal and intercultural communication. (Institutional SLO)
Analyze, evaluate, and synthesize relevant ideas and information; draw reasonable conclusions in order to make decisions and solve problems. (Institutional SLO)
Apply accurate calculations and symbolic operations in his/her specific field of study or in interpreting social and economic trends.
Demonstrate critical and reflective civic engagement and thoughtful participation in diverse local and global communities. (from new SRJC Mission Statement)
Locate, categorize, evaluate, and cite multiple information resources necessary to engage in projects, papers, or performance.
The ACCJC accreditation standards require assessment of degree SLOs. An associate degree consists of a General Education pattern plus a major. Thus, if a student meets the expected General Education SLOs and the SLOs for the major, the student has met the degree outcomes.
