College Assessment Strategy

The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences supports departments’ systematic assessment of student learning objectives. Although faculty, students, and other stakeholders are the heart of assessment, the Office of the Dean provides additional resources, coordinates assessment reporting and review processes, and serves as a center of accountability to higher levels of university governance.
