The work of assessment endeavors to answer a simple question: Is what we’re doing working?

This applies to institutional concerns, such as how well the university is fulfilling its mission and implementing its strategic plan, and to the paramount concern of how well our students are learning in the classroom.

Faculty, staff, and administrators are in involved in assessment activities at all levels across the institution. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness supports these activities by working with faculty and staff to develop strategies to measure student learning outcomes and by working with staff and administrators in their efforts at ongoing improvement of non-academic programs and departments and the services they provide. We oversee a campus-wide integrated assessment model that supports student learning, organizational planning and decision making, and resource allocation.
