Learning Outcomes Committee
Students completing programs at Green River Community College, whether academic transfer or career and technical education, will be better able to achieve their goals after leaving Green River. This is because they will have achieved a high degree of knowledge and skill in their chosen majors, programs, or specialties and, in addition, because they will have developed a number of general core abilities and skills which will serve them well in all aspects of their lives.
The mission of the Learning Outcomes Committee is to promote continuous improvement in the quality of teaching and learning by facilitating in the identification and assessment of student learning outcomes. Student learning outcomes are those skills, abilities, attitudes and behaviors that are most likely to contribute to student success, both as a student here at Green River Community College and after leaving GRCC. It is an essential part of the mission of the Learning Outcomes Committee to utilize its cross-discipline and cross-divisional structure (dictating by its being a subcommittee of the Instructional Council) when facilitating in the identification and assessment of quality teaching and student learning outcomes. The Learning Outcomes Committee will also serve as a training and information resource for faculty wishing to improve their teaching and to integrate and assess student learning in their individual courses, at the program-level, and at the campus-wide level. As a sub-committee of the Instructional Council, the Learning Outcomes Committee is responsible for giving periodic reports to the Instructional Council, where current assessment plans are outlined and guidance in those plans is sought from the members of the Instructional Council.

The Learning Outcomes Committee (LOC) is a sub-committee of the Instructional Council. This means that each division may provide the committee with a representative. In addition to the division representatives, the committee is supported by an academic dean, and various adjunct members who offer there advice and expertise to meet the needs of the committee.
"We believe that students who develop the competency in Green River's campus-wide learning outcome, in addition to achieving competency in their subject areas, are more likely to become lifelong learners and to become successful in their personal lives, in the work force, and in fulfilling their citizenship responsibilities."
