  • Promote a culture of assessment and evidence-based decision making on campus
  • Guide and coordinate university-wide assessment and improvement activities
  • Facilitate and support the development and implementation of assessment activities at the college and program level
  • Provide resources and training on assessment issues
  • Collaborate with faculty and staff on special assessment initiatives
