Student learning outcomes are identified for each program. These student learning outcomes align with the outcomes established for similar programs on the main campus. Lee University maintains the responsibility for assessing the student learning outcomes and has created a process whereby select outcomes will be assessed annually. Each program is assessed using the same process and protocols that are used on the main campus. The program coordinators at Lee University are responsible for coordinating these assessments. Results of the assessment are filed with the appropriate academic administrators and the Director of Institutional Research and Assessment. Changes to the length of the program, part-time and the number of courses offered came about due to the program having to be accredited by the German Government. All foreign university study programs have come under this scrutiny, but this is beneficial to our students that the degrees are accredited both in the USA and Germany.
