Academic Communities Assessment Goals

The Academic Communities assessment plans were designed by the University College Dean, University College Associate Dean for Curriculum and Program Development, the Academic Communities Assessment Coordinator, and the Program Specialist. Each page herein is an effort to summarize our annual assessment plan as well as provide insight into past programmatic assessment. They serve to provide faculty and student perceptions and experiences in the academic communities program, enrollment data, and evidence of student work in relation to the student learning outcomes, program outcomes and overall academic community success.
