Research & assessment
Assessment – through surveys, focus groups, interviews or other methods – is how we make sure our current programs are relevant and effective. It’s also how we identify unmet needs and develop new programs to address those gaps.
Student Experience staff members are well-versed in designing and implementing assessment projects, and can work with other University departments and student organizations to help with projects. We can also provide training in developing student learning outcomes and provide free access to an assessment service provider called Campus Labs: Baseline.
