This paper is an informative overview of the student learning objective SLO 22, lifelong learning, in relation to the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo Construction Management Department. The student learning objective of lifelong learning is an existing university objective for Cal Poly, however, recently has also become a department specific objective for Construction Management. This senior project explores what lifelong learning means to the Construction Management department. Further, the paper explores how the current outcomes of this objective may improve to more closely embody the department mission. These findings will allow for emphasis on lifelong learning in order to prepare students to be lifelong learners while receiving an education at Cal Poly, as well as continued growth after graduation. The hybrid nature of this senior project includes a project-based portion consisting of the creation of a study guide of SLO 22. The intended purpose of the study guide is to prepare students for the AIC Associate Contractor Exam. The research-based portion of this project includes the creation and distribution of a survey with the intention of determining what lifelong learning is, how the Cal Poly Construction Management Department is currently fulfilling this objective, and how it can be improved.
