Standards for Learning -- Fraternity and Sorority Life Student Learning Outcomes
By joining a values-based fraternity or sorority at UIC, numerous engagement opportunities will guide the membership experience through key outcomes for personal and professional success. Students should expect to enhance competencies in a developmentally sequenced manner through increased involvement in their own organization, within a governing council, through the full fraternity and sorority life (FSL) community, and in connections across the UIC campus and the city of Chicago.
In committing to the core principles of membership:
- Students will understand the importance of scholarship and practice academic responsibility.
- Students will demonstrate an awareness of and appreciation for social justice issues.
- Students will demonstrate personal responsibility and respectful behavior in a community environment and make informed decisions that will reduce high-risk conduct.
- Students will develop skills in self-governance of their organizations and work collaboratively to create and achieve community goals.
Student Engagement in Student Affairs Heading link
With one of the most diverse student populations in the nation, the University of Illinois Chicago is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment for its students and fostering a sense of belonging, academic success, student growth and development, diversity, and community.
Student Affairs provides enriching, co-curricular opportunities for every student to engage and build meaningful connections from orientation through graduation.
UIC Student Affairs provides a myriad of out of the classroom opportunities in which students engage in throughout their college experience. Through these experiences students are able to apply and connect what they are learning both in and outside the classroom. The approach to developing the student learning outcomes framework for Student Affairs is based on the premise that students first acquire knowledge related to these learning domains, are given the opportunity to apply the skills learned through their out of the classroom experiences, and ultimately integrate these skills into their lives to serve them beyond their time at UIC.
- Divisional Learning Outcomes allow for integration and shared responsibility for student learning across units. These current learning goals and outcomes are the result of the divisional initiative to implement the curricular approach and were updated in June 2023.
- Unit Learning Outcomes define what students will learn through multiple programs and services offered within a unit, including those designed and implemented in Fraternity and Sorority Life as also highlighted above.
Student Engagement is a partnership between UIC and each student that bridges the learning that occurs inside and outside the classroom to prepare students for success beyond UIC.
Our Student Engagement Educational Priority is:
