Learning College Inventory

The Learning College Inventory is designed to help an institution assess its status as a Learning College, i.e., a college that places learning first and provides learning opportunities any way, any place, and any time. It is also designed to be a tool for monitoring and directing a college’s progress toward becoming more learning centered. This inventory comprises five critical areas in which institutions committed to becoming Learning Colleges are focusing their attention and resources: Organizational Culture, Employee Recruitment and Development, Technology, Student Learning, and Learning Outcomes. This summary report reflects the key characteristics and principles of a Learning College as applied to these five focus areas.
