On March 1, 2014, the Institutional Research and Planning (IRP) office began its transition to an Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment (IEA) at which time official institutional oversight, training, and support for assessment activities across campus was transferred to it. As a result of this transition, several support structures were put in place to effect a culture of assessment and continuous improvement on the UWG campus. These included the hiring of a Director of Assessment, Assessment Coordinator, the establishment of institutional and divisional level assessment committees, and the appointment of assessment coordinators in every unit and for every academic program.
University Assessment Committee
The University Assessment Committee serves in an advisory capacity and provides guidance and recommendations concerning university assessment; ensure compliance with all applicable SACSCOC standards and requirements; examine and provide feedback on university assessment for the purpose of continuous improvement; and oversee the implementation of the University's procedures as they relate to institutional assessment.
