The mission of the Assessment Office is to support the communication and implementation of a cohesive university-wide assessment system for continuous improvement of student learning and institutional effectiveness at Lewis University
The Assessment of Student Learning and Institutional Effectiveness is a critical focus activity for the Higher Learning Commission, the accrediting body for Lewis University. As an AQIP Institution, Lewis is continuously striving for a culture of assessment and a University-wide assessment system to improve student learning and institutional effectiveness through evidence-based decisions. The University is making great and successful strides in plan development and implementation. Mission documents and the Baccalaureate Characteristics provide the base objectives for assessing student learning. In addition, colleges and departments have respective content objectives. Department/units with program accrediting bodies align those standards and guidelines as they participate in the University Assessment Plan.
