Contemporary approaches to assessing student learning outcomes (SLOs) in student affairs (SA) at institutions of higher learning are reviewed. Mixed-methods involving stakeholders in assessment are emphasized as “state of the art” in SA, with attention paid to diversity and cultural competence in assessing policies, programs and services. Innovative methods utilize student reflections, combined with direct measures of learning, to determine the impact of individual differences and the overall university experience on a variety of SLOs.
