Touro University California (in conjunction with its branch campus Touro University Nevada, which make up the Touro Western Division) has developed four Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs), of which one will be focused on each year. The ISLOs are as follows:

To exemplify Judaic values of social justice, intellectual pursuit and service  to humanity, Touro University students will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Use knowledge, skills and effective communication to benefit diverse communities
  2. Collaborate across disciplines toward a common goal
  3. Think critically to make evidence-informed decisions and evaluate conclusions in a real world context
  4. Act in a professional and ethical manner

Touro University previously had eight ISLOs. After carefully reviewing the results of the first full cycle of assessing the eight ISLOs, TUC recently streamlined down the ISLOs to four as to provide deeper levels of assessment. The new ISLOs took effect on July 1, 2015. Assessment of the new ISLO1 will be conducted in the academic year 2015-2016.

To ensure the assessment of Student Learning Outcomes is sustainable, meaningful, and becomes part of the institutional culture, TUC formed the Institutional Assessment Committee (IAC) in 2011. The committee provides leadership and assistance in developing and implementing university-wide assessment policies, procedures and activities.
