Global Learning Outcomes (GLOs)

The CHSU Global Learning Outcomes (GLOs) express a shared, campus-wide articulation of expectations for all degree recipients. They enable CHSU graduates to achieve clinical competence by applying professionally relevant, function knowledge in relational contexts relevant to the health professions: direct care, the team, the health system, the community, and the profession itself. Through development of the capacities represented by the CHSU GLOs, students acquire the habits and abilities that prepare them to become effective professionals and citizens throughout their lives. The following GLOs are the guiding principles of the curricular design applicable to all CHSU education programs; therefore, programs and degree recipients will be required to demonstrate achievement for each GLO.
