Learning and Academic Assessment at Pacific
Learning and Academic Assessment supports the mission of the University of the Pacific by helping programs and faculty use assessment to provide a superior, student-centered learning experience integrating liberal arts and professional education and preparing individuals for lasting achievement and responsible leadership in their careers and communities.
The mission of Learning and Academic Assessment is to help academic units and faculty to design, conduct, and advocate for high-quality assessment and the conditions that support it, and to collaborate with other campus educators to assess and improve student learning outcomes and educational effectiveness.
Academic assessment is integral to curriculum and instruction and is within the realm of faculty and shared governance. The Director of Academic Assessment supports the faculty with resources and technical assistance.
Learning and Academic Assessment is part of the Office of the Provost and includes a Director and the Assessment Working Group.
