Student learning in the area of diversity is an area of focus for many institutions of higher learning. This research focused on program leaders' understandings and attitudes toward enhancing outcomes, assessment tasks, and associated measures of learning in areas of disciplinary relevant diversity. The research also reviewed learning outcomes and associated measures of learning integrated in programs across a large college and assessment findings from direct and indirect measures of diversity learning. The session will begin with an overview of the research purpose, questions, and methodology. The audience will interactively experience discussions similar to those elicited in the research, to include (a) reviewing programmatic outcomes, assessments, and measures; (b) discussions that guide decisions to focus outcomes toward disciplinary focused learning expectations; (c) refining assessment tasks through which students can demonstrate the defined learning; and (d) aggregating assessment findings to understand qualities of learning in areas of diversity.
