Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee Now Part of Faculty Council

Prompted by Emory’s upcoming reaffirmation of accreditation, last fall Provost Earl Lewis appointed a Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee to provide faculty over- sight of the University’s assessment plans. Its charge was to

  • Review assessment plans from each of the schools and provide feedback
  • Share best practices and strategies
  • Help shape a “culture of assessment” that is uniquely Emory’s and that informs and strengthens the SACS reaccreditation process
  • Report to the Provost on key opportunities and challenges related to assessment at Emory.

At the October Council meeting, Ken Anderson (Oxford) presented on the work of this committee, which he chairs, and proposed that the committee become an open-ended ad-hoc committee of the Council. After discussion, the Council voted to approve the proposal, with the committee’s membership provost-appointed but Council approved.
