Committee Membership

The Assessment Committee views its primary charge to help shape and direct where and how assessment takes place, make recommendations about who or what group might take responsibility for the assessment process in various divisions, and consider avenues whereby the assessment results might be broadly shared and subsequently applied to ongoing strategic planning.

Committee membership includes faculty, academic affairs staff and student life staff, including (by specific role) the University Registrar, the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, the Associate Dean of the First Year and the Director of Institutional Research.  The Committee holds monthly meetings during the academic year.
