Assessment Steering Committee, 2008 - 2011
The Assessment Steering Committee was appointed in September, 2008, by Vice President for Academic Affairs Susan Kress and is a subcommittee of the Committee on Educational Policies and Planning (CEPP). The function of the Assessment Steering Committee was to assist the Faculty Assessment Coordinator in the promotion, facilitation, and coordination of efforts in the College-wide assessment of student learning. The committee referred all policy matters relating to assessment to CEPP for recommendation to the faculty and administration. The main accomplishment of the Assessment Steering Committee during this time was to develop a list of college-wide Goals for Student Learning and Development.
The membership of the Assessment Steering Committee consisted of four faculty members (one of whom would be the Faculty Assessment Coordinator; another of whom would be a CEPP representative); the Director of Institutional Research (or designee); the Director of First-Year Experience; the Dean of Studies/Director of Student Academic Services; the Director of Career Services; a representative from the Office of Special Programs; and two student representatives.
