Assessment at Baruch
As Baruch College's Office of Academic Assessment, our mission is to evaluate the effectiveness of Baruch's programs and departments, with an eye towards pursuing excellence in teaching and learning. We collect and analyze data to enable informed decision-making, allowing us to explore the efficacy of current practices and to test new ones as well.
An additional mission of ours is to ensure that the College meets or exceeds the standards set by our accrediting bodies, Middle States (for the College itself), NASPAA (for the School of Public Affairs), and AACSB (for Zicklin).
While we assess programs and departments in Baruch, the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment compiles and analyzes institutional data to support the operation, decision-making, and planning functions of the College.
