University Assessment Committee

The University Assessment Committee (UAC) provides a forum to collect and share effective student learning outcomes assessment practices from across the Webster network.  

The UAC’s roles and responsibilities are to:

  • Recommend guidelines to the Office of Academic Affairs regarding the annual schedule of assessment reporting, reporting templates, and policies.
  • Coordinate with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness on the delivery of seminars, workshops, and resources to promote reflection and awareness of student learning outcomes assessment practices.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness will invite staff to serve on the UAC. Faculty members of the UAC will be appointed by their respective Dean.

The UAC membership consists of:
