The University Assessment Committee

Back to Issue 18 Table of Contents

The University continues to make advances in ensuring that all of its academic programs provide high quality education. The University Assessment Committee (formerly the Assessment Working Group) is a standing administrative-faculty committee that is charged with providing recommendations to the Provost and Academic Council on issues relating to institution-wide and program-specific assessment of academic and student development programs at the University. Current projects include assistance in the assessment and review of the Pacific's University-Wide Learning Objectives, assessment of the WASC Core Competencies, and development of guidelines for program assessment.

The University Assessment Committee is also committed to fostering a culture of assessment at the University by collaborating with CTL on delivering instruction on faculty development in assessment, by providing feedback to programs and departments regarding their assessment plans, and promoting the scholarship of teaching, learning and assessment. Last month, CTL and UAC co-sponsored the visit of Jesse Stommel, Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Stommel presented and gave a workshop to faculty on emergent outcomes and open educational resources.
