At the conclusion of the spring semester, each program is reviewed though an annual report and altered for improved effectiveness of instruction and student learning for the following fall semester. The annual reports and analysis from a variety of collected assessments for the seven programs are housed in the office of the Vice President of Student Development and are available upon request.
In addition, program methods and effectiveness are reviewed throughout the year by the Vice President of Student Development and Associates. Discussions are centered on the following questions:
- How do we know students are learning, growing, and serving?
- To what degree have we been successful in achieving our mission statement?
- What improvements must be made to better serve our students?
- Are we focused on the university’s and department’s mission student learning outcomes when reviewing each program?
