The office of Student Affairs Assessment & Research provides leadership to the Division of Student Affairs in the development and management of assessment and research efforts for program improvement, service development, and professional growth. We offer guidance to the Division on assessment issues, manage select Divisional assessment initiatives, and support Division staff in conducting effective assessments and the productive use of data.
