Institutional Learning Outcomes

In an increasingly dynamic world, a college must clearly state its educational philosophy in terms of the outcomes it seeks to create for its graduates.                

                 
Kennedy-King College has identified six key Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) that encompass the skills and knowledge we believe that all students should have upon completion of a degree, regardless of discipline, so that they will be well equipped to reach their full potential and successfully compete in the global marketplace.
