University Assessment Council

The University Assessment Council (UAC) was established by the Office of the Provost on September 10, 2010. The UAC is a representative group of faculty and staff who support student learning assessment and continuous improvement in the colleges, programs, and units in the Provost Area. The council represents the aims and preferences of faculty and staff, by performing the following activities:

  • Review and provide feedback on program/unit assessment plans, results, and learning improvement initiatives;
  • Provide advice on priority and feasibility of college/program/unit learning improvement action plans to the Office of the Provost;
  • Provide feedback, suggestions, and recommendations concerning ongoing Office of University Assessment initiatives and resources (e.g., workshop topics and content, speakers, materials, e-resources, etc) and on assessment reporting structures and systems to the Assistant Provost for Strategic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness;
  • Keep the respective college/program/unit administrators, faculty and staff well informed regarding the University's student learning assessment process.
