Office of Academic Affairs

The Office of Academic Affairs at GateWay works closely with the Office of Student Affairs. Between the two offices, Academic Affairs administers all areas of instruction, including faculty, curriculum and student academic issues. Student Affairs has oversight of non-instructional areas related to student enrollment, student life and special student programs. Our mission is to enrich the student experience by fostering learning and personal development and by providing for and responding to students' needs.

Together the offices are designed and dedicated to serving students and to make sure that the campus learning environment is conducive to students attaining their academic goals. See below for programs and service areas.

 

Institutional Learning Outcomes

GateWay Community College is committed to student success through assessment for student learning. It is the aspiration of all faculty and staff that graduates of GateWay Community College will demonstrate proficiency in our three Institutional Learning Outcomes: Effective Communication, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, and Personal Responsibility and Civic Engagement. 

We believe that these three Institutional Learning Outcomes are beneficial to students as they transition to the workforce or continue their academic studies, and endeavor to become engaged global citizens. 

Effective Communication 

Learners will communicate effectively in a range of social, academic, and professional contexts as defined by five competency areas: emotional intelligence, active listening, written, oral and visual modes, effective use of technology, and collaboration skills. 

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving 

Learners will develop the mindset to gather, organize, synthesize, analyze, and evaluate information to solve problems and make evidence-based decisions as defined by four competency areas: metacognition, decision making, information literacy, and analytical inquiry/quantitative reasoning. 

Personal Responsibility and Civic Engagement 

Learners will demonstrate personal growth and responsibility to others by addressing diverse cultural, civic, social, and global issues.
