The Oxnard College faculty is charged by Title 5 with the primary responsibility for standards or policies regarding student preparation and success (#5 under the 10+1). The LOT Committee reports directly to the Academic Senate.


In its role as the body that makes recommendations regarding creation, assessment and revision of student learning outcomes based on collected data, the LOT Committee provides guidance, advocacy and oversight in the development of such student learning outcomes (SLOs) at the course, program and institutional levels, assisting the institution in the fulfillment of its mission.
