Academic Assessment Committee

Appointment:  The President shall appoint four members to this committee, and the Senate shall elect four members from the faculty at large. Preference should be given to members with previous experience in curriculum development and evaluation and/or program accreditation. The student government shall select one non-voting student member.

Chair:  The President or the President’s designee appoints the chair. A co-chair will be elected from and by the four Senate-elected members. (This election will take place during the last meeting of the committee in each spring semester so that committee leadership will be in place at the beginning of the following academic year.)


The Academic Assessment Committee shall review Academic Learning Compacts (ALC) and Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) developed by each unit in order to assess their feasibility and consistency with University-wide evaluation. The committee will provide recommendations to the Provost on methods of assessing SLOs for each unit (including General Education). These recommendations may include unit self-assessment criteria already established. The committee will develop methods for assessing progress in implementing curricular recommendations. These methods should include input from student surveys. The committee will also develop long-term assessment plans for the undergraduate program at an institutional level. The committee will provide an annual report of its work, findings, and recommendations to the Senate and the President.

Term:  3 years, staggered; 1 year - student
