Undergraduate Student Learning Initiative

The Undergraduate Student Learning Initiative (USLI) is a campus-wide initiative that supports departments in establishing program level learning goals and evaluation procedures for all of our undergraduate major programs. As a result of this process, faculty and students will have a shared understanding of the purpose of the major and what graduating seniors are expected to know or be able to do at the end of their program of study. Faculty and students will also have evidence of how well their program goals are being met. In short, at a program level this process is about identifying what it is we want our students to learn and then making sure they learn it.

The goal of this on-going process of developing learning goals and assessing them is to improve undergraduate education at UC Berkeley. The goals of the USLI are consistent with those of ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
