University Assessment Committee

Cecelia Traugh, Dean of the School of Education, BrooklynThe purpose of the University Assessment Committee (UAC) is to link the work of the Campus-based assessment efforts to University-wide assessment and planning.  The Committee is committed to a collaborative, integrative approach that maximizes communication and transparency among the main campuses, the regional campuses and University Center.  It supports Campus-based assessment efforts by providing University-wide guidance regarding faculty and staff development on assessment; steps needed to meet regional and other accrediting agency standards on institutional effectiveness and assessment of student learning; and major assessment initiatives, e.g., the First-Year Experience. The Committee is responsible for developing and implementing a University-wide, ongoing, sustainable assessment plan and for tracking and reporting assessment efforts at the department, school/college, and University-wide levels.  Finally, the UAC serves as a recommending body to the University officers regarding assessment issues.
