Administrative responsibilities for assessment rest primarily within the Office of the Provost, but emanate directly from the faculty through departments, colleges and from staff. In May 2008, the Provost convened an Assessment Coordinating Council (ACC). The ACC was the coordinating and advisory resource for assessment activities for the campus and was composed of faculty and staff representatives from the colleges as well as from administrative and support units.
The ACC worked diligently for several years shaping assessment on campus. It was intimately involved in developing the "Faculty-Driven Assessment Cycle" and the rubrics used in scoring the APR reported Program Assessment Plans. In 2015, the members of the ACC felt that they had fulfilled their mission and it was time to move forward. Therefore, the ACC was dismissed and an instiutional-level Assessment Leadership Team is being formed under the leadership of the Office of Instruction and Assessment. During the initial meetings in Fall 2015, the members have begun building foundations and goals, and will continue to do so in Spring 2016. More information will be posted when available.
