Campus-Wide Assessment Committee

In the fall of 2011, Provost Nader formed a Campus-Wide Assessment Committee. The charge of this committee is to aid in achieving the broad campus goal of sustaining a culture of assessment to support the continuous improvement of academic and co-curricular programs. Specifically, the committee will:

  • track assessment programs across campus and monitor for compliance with the college's strategic plan and/or the mandates of external entities;
  • assist academic and other functional areas in developing robust assessment efforts, based on measurable outcomes, by making available assistance from campus staff who engage in best practices in assessment;
  • periodically report on the progress of the campus in sustaining and improving its assessment efforts;
  • identify data, evidence and institutional research needed in order to improve and document assessment efforts;
  • assist in improving efforts to "close the loop" by using assessment results to improve or strengthen academic programs and extracurricular programs and institution-wide improvement efforts;
  • coordinate with the Middle States Steering Committee to assure that recommendations for improving assessment, data gathering and analysis are seamlessly implemented.
