University Assessment Council

The University Assessment Council supports a process of continual self-evaluation and improvement at Kennesaw State University.  The primary purpose is to oversee ongoing assessment to improve administrative, academic and student support services, research, community and public service, educational programs, and student-learning.  It seeks to foster full participation in outcomes-based assessment.

Council membership consists of invited representatives from all areas of the University. The University Assessment Council serves in a variety of ways:

  • Proposes and assists in the implementation of university institutional effectiveness policies and procedures
  • Monitors the assessment of the KSU Strategic Plan
  • Monitors the quality of program and unit assessment results, reports, and plans
  • Provides an annual report to the president documenting strengths and weaknesses of the university's overall effort in assessment and institutional effectiveness
  • Serves as a cross-campus forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and advice on methods and practices of assessment
  • Keeps the university community apprised of expectations for assessment, including expectations related to KSU’s regional accreditation
  • Works with those who engage in assessment activities to help them understand and enhance their activities
  • Promotes collaboration and optimization of the use of shared tools and resources among areas.
