Institutional Student Learning Outcomes
A Gallaudet education provides students with opportunities to develop as wellness-grounded, proudly bilingual, career-ready critical thinkers, who are digitally aware, ethical, scientifically literate global citizens. Gallaudet’s curriculum provides learning experiences to promote the development of Gallaudet Scholars:
Wellness: Recognize how my choices can transform my health, well-being, and ability to thrive; seek support and utilize resources for personal growth; and work collaboratively to promote wellness on campus and within myself.
Bilingualism: Use American Sign Language (ASL) and written English to communicate effectively with diverse audiences for a variety of purposes.
Career Readiness: Develop career decision-making skills and competencies by engaging in theoretical and experiential learning.
Critical Thinking: Think critically and innovatively, and express myself creatively, making connections within and across disciplines.
Digital Awareness: Employ data and technology in effective, competent, fair, accountable, transparent, and responsible (ethical) ways.
Ethics: Formulate reasoned decisions about ethical issues that lead to wise action.
Science Literacy: Evaluate evidence derived from a systematic analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to address issues that pertain to the experiences of individuals in societies.
Global Citizenship: Articulate knowledge of intersectional identities within a global society and demonstrate intercultural knowledge, cultural competence, and skills in the constructive civic discourse on the local, national, and global levels.
Learning Outcomes are the general education goals the university has established for all undergraduate students and represent the knowledge, skills and attitudes that students should gain to successfully complete the requirements of a course, program major, and degree. Many individual academic departments have also developed their own learning outcomes; check with the departments for details.

The SLOs are listed in alphabetical order below, but they are intended to be thought of as a wheel, all lending balance to the student at the hub, rather than “ranked” in any kind of order.
