Student Learning Outcomes

UMBC is committed to assessment and student outcome measurement. The Sherman Scholars program embraces these efforts and aligns all activities to our identified goals:

Sherman Scholars will:

  1. cultivate mindsets and practices to develop as a culturally responsive educator.
  2. establish authentic and intentional relationships with students.
  3. develop a vision for a learning environment grounded in high academic and character expectations, classroom systems, and management strategies.
  4. engage in productive relationships with families and the school community.
  5. demonstrate competence and confidence in applying for a teaching position in an urban and/or high-needs school with a focus in Baltimore.

All program components align to these five SLOs, include the FYE course, applied learning experiences, teacher candidate seminars, and scholar-led seminars.
