University Assessment Committee

The University Assessment Committee (UAC) provides a framework and process for facilitating the educational effectiveness of the university. The UAC ensures that programs, departments, units, colleges, and divisions have accepted assessment systems in place; works with faculty, professional staff, and administrators, including deans, vice presidents, and the provost, to assess student learning outcomes in a deliberate, organized manner; and makes policy and procedural recommendations to enhance institutional quality.

Annual Reports

On an annual basis, departments, units, colleges, and divisions submit assessment reports to the UAC and the Office of the Provost. The UAC then, in its own report, synthesizes the reports, highlights key trends in the data, and outlines recommendations for quality improvements. The UAC also presents its report to UNE leaders, distributes it to the University community, and carries out or monitors the implementation of its recommendations.
