Office of Assessment, Accreditation, and Institutional Effectiveness

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of the Office of Assessment, Accreditation, and Institutional Effectiveness is to facilitate integration of faculty, administration, and staff efforts across system, institutional, school, division, and departmental units, in the service of student success and institutional effectiveness.

The Office does so by providing leadership, consultation, collaboration, support, and training on strategic and operational planning, assessment of student learning and development, assessment of teaching, assessment of administrative and educational support units, institutional effectiveness, and resource allocation.
