Undergraduate Academic Assessment and
Comprehensive Program Review Steering Council
The Council was formed in 2011 in response to an earlier report in which the requirements for yearly outcomes assessment, program evaluation and general education assessment were reviewed and the processes streamlined. The Council is made up of members from each college, the Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Division of Academic and Student Affairs (DASA), and a representative from University Planning and Analysis (UPA).
