Learning and Achievement Goals

An ad hoc committee of NYITs Academic Senate coordinated conversations among faculty, staff, and students as well as key stakeholders (including school and program advisory boards, prospective employers, and alumni) to develop institution-level educational goals for student learning and achievement for all students at all academic levels and at all locations. The following goals were adopted by the Senate in fall 2015:


By the time of graduation, NYIT students will, at the appropriate level (bachelors, masters or professional):

  • Gain a coherent understanding of the knowledge, skills, and values of their discipline
  • Achieve proficiency in oral and written communication, scientific and quantitative reasoning, critical analysis, technological competency, and information literacy
  • Integrate academic and co-curricular learning to explore concepts and questions that bridge disciplines, professions, and cultures
  • Formulate evidence-based and ethical courses of action or conclusions to address challenges and problems
  • Engage with, respond to, and reflect on political, social, environmental and economic challenges at local, national, and global levels
  • Develop self-efficacy, professionalism, creativity, and an innovative spirit


Achievement goals represent our hopes for who our alumni will become later in life. Our goal while they are at NYIT is to provide our students with enough experiences to cultivate the traits they will need later in life to have satisfying lives.

After graduating, NYIT alumni:

  • Are prepared for long-term success in work and life
  • Contribute to local and global communities through social and professional relationships
