Who Should Assess

All employees at the university help support the university's mission, so everyone has a stake in assessment. With that said, every program, both academic and administrative, should have a designated program assessment coordinator. See program assessment lead responsibilities.

The University Assessment Committee guides and assists academic departments in assessing effectiveness and enhancing best educational practices.
