Students grow and develop both academically and professionally in college. FLCC's Learning Framework helps guide the educational experience for students. It provides a foundation for how the College makes curriculum and assessment decisions to meet the learning needs of students.
FLCC's Learning Framework assists FLCC educators to create and assess academic programs and curriculum that preserve the unique student learning experience, while meeting the academic requirements that are set by SUNY, The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, and the New York State Department of Education. The Learning Framework represents FLCC's values (Vitality, Inquiry, Perseverance and Interconnectedness). It's these values that are what make the student experience unique.
SUNY and The Middle States Commission on Higher Education both require all students to learn certain skills upon completion of their FLCC experience. These skills are represented as the beams of the Learning Framework's structure. The Columns, which support the roof, build on SUNY and Middle States requirements by adding general education competencies. The steps to the building connect the students' daily campus learning experiences to the Learning Framework. To better explain each aspect of the Learning Framework, the College has a graphic organizer available that details each section.
