Welcome to the University Assessment Website

We are committed to the concept of quality enhancement through evidence-based continuous assessment and improvement. We value collaboration, innovation, integrity, service, and transparency. 

Our office provides: logistical support for campus, program, and course-level assessment; workshops and consultation services to academic units, individuals, and non-academic support units; promotes the use of assessment instruments and methods that are embedded within students’ normal learning experiences; compiles, analyzes, and presents assessment data to the university community; and promotes the use of existing and emergent technologies.
