The central mission of Long Beach City College is its commitment to student learning and success. It is recognized that learning requires more than memorizing facts or figures; it demands that students utilize their command of those facts and figures to solve problems, demonstrate skills and think critically about what they have learned. In the same way, the faculty and staff recognize that measuring student learning is more than identifying patterns in course completion rates and GPAs; the constituency groups are committed to thinking critically about how students learn and how each component of the college contributes to the learning process and thus student success. The Outcomes Assessment Process stimulates discussion and directs activities that can improve instructional delivery and support systems.
Collegewide Plans and Documents support the College's mission through the identification of goals and plans. These include the Superintendent-President's 24-Month Agenda for Advancement of Student Success and Community Development, the Board of Trustees' Goals, the Educational Master Plan, and Institutional Goals developed from the Department Plan/Program Review Process. The Outcomes Assessment Process is reflected through the Department Plan/Program Review Process.
