Cal Poly Humboldt Undergraduate Institutional Learning Outcomes or Cal Poly Humboldt Graduate School Institutional Learning Outcomes. Any syllabus must list the specific Institutional Learning Outcomes that are addressed in that course.

General Education and All-University Requirements (GEAR) Program Learning Outcomes. A syllabus for a GE, Institutions, and/or Diversity and Common Ground (DCG) course must list the GEAR outcomes for the areas it satisfies (e.g., if it is a GE Area C course that also satisfies DCG, it must list Area C outcomes and DCG outcomes).
