Information Literacy on Our Campus

The Research and Instructional Support Department provides leadership on campus for integrating information literacy skills in the classroom, course, and program levels.

The UW System is a participant in the Association of American Colleges and Universities Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) project. From this project, UWM has adopted a set of Essential Learning Outcomes. These learning outcomes are used as an assessment framework for departments and programs across campus. Information literacy is included among the “effective communication skills” that students should develop.
