As institutions have become increasingly focused on improving college readiness and graduation rates, understanding what contributes to student learning and development has become imperative. At CSULB, the Career Development Center has been actively engaged in identifying and collecting data concerning learning outcomes at the program level, and using these findings to adjust practices and procedures.
