Academic Assessment Council

This council serves as an advisory board to the Assessment Steering Committee (ASC), which is composed of the leadership from the Office of Institutional Research & Assessment, Tennessee Teaching & Learning Center, and Office of Accreditation. (These offices are charged by the Provost to provide leadership, oversight and management of assessment of academic programs and general education.)

The Academic Assessment Council advises the ASC by:

  1. providing feedback on how assessment is working within the departments and general education
  2. helping identify faculty development needs
  3. providing direction in advancing the assessment culture
  4. ensuring campus-wide communication relating to academic assessment
