Student Affairs offers opportunities that support student learning and success commensurate with the broader scope and goals of the University. Student Affairs is committed to implementing assessment to determine how our efforts are meeting students’ developmental needs, to monitor progress towards unit level, divisional, and institutional goals, as well as to inform strategic planning. Through the shared practice of assessment, we demonstrate who we are, what we value, expectations for our students and Student Affairs, and our contributions to the fulfillment of the University’s mission.
