Academic Learning Compact
The Florida Board of Governors (BOG) has determined that
universities will develop Academic
Learning Compacts (ALC) and related processes to ensure student
achievement in baccalaureate degree programs in the State University
System. These Compacts include learning objectives in three areas (communication,
critical thinking, and knowledge and skills of the discipline), and
are to be made readily available to prospective and enrolled students.
The Information Technology ALC is available for viewing here.
