University Assessment Committee (UAC)

The University Assessment Committee (UAC), comprised of faculty and staff representing each school/college within the university, provides advice, recommendations, and strategies to university administration and academic units regarding all activities associated with the assessment of student learning. The UAC is charged by the Provost to re-examine extant assessment practices, recommend new and different strategies where change may be warranted, and provide counsel aimed at improving and enhancing the effectiveness of all student assessment practices in undergraduate, graduate, professional and online education at St. John’s University.
