Function and Authority
The Academic Assessment Coordinating Committee coordinates all academic assessment at Utica College including, but not limited to, the 5-year program review, the departmental annual review, and any all-college assessment of student learning or program performance. The committee is responsible for reviewing assessment processes and recommending appropriate changes to the Office of the Provost. Further, the committee is responsible for reporting to the faculty and academic administration the status of the institution's assessment processes.
MembershipMembership shall consist of:
- Three (3) faculty members from each school
- One librarian
- The Dean of Assessment
- The Associate Provost
- The Associate Provost for Online Education
At least one faculty member from each school will be tenured. Faculty members of the committee (elected and appointed) serve 3-year terms with no term limits. All AACC members are voting members.
The Committee will maintain electronic records on the College’s designated storage devices. Electronic records stored by the Committee on the College’s designated storage devices are the official records of the committee. Committee minutes will be kept separately from assessment documentation. Assessment documentation includes program reviews, assessment reports, and communications between departments and the Committee. Faculty and administrators will have access to the Committee minutes. Only Committee members and the Provost will have access to assessment documentation. The Committee can give access to other individuals on an as-needed basis.
Committee minutes and related materials will be kept for a minimum of ten years and may be deleted after that period at the discretion of the committee. Assessment documentation (including program reviews, communications with programs, and reports) will become permanent records.
The committee will maintain a web site with information about the committee, its membership, and other relevant documentation.
