ISLOs

Institutional Student Learning Outcomes

Higher education is ever-changing in the twenty-first century. Yet, one aspect remains constant: the need to provide well-balanced and meaningful programs that prepare students for a lifelong commitment of service. At Weimar, our context is the global community, in that, we have been charged to give the Everlasting Gospel “to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people” (Rev 14:6, KJV). It’s our purpose to not only offer a conglomerate of coursework, degree programs, and co-curricular activities so that a student can leave a with a diploma in hand, but more so to prepare them for comprehensive health evangelism first and foremost. In other words, although our graduates will proceed to medical school, seminary, or other graduate programs, our main focus is to prepare them for medical missionary work: healing mind, body, and spirit in a world plagued by physical, mental, and spiritual maladies. Our seven institutional student learning outcomes (ISLOs) capture that focus.

Students practice and promote physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing by leading in collaborative, community-based programming among diverse people groups domestically or internationally.

ISLO #3
