The Office of Strategic Planning and Assessment was created to foster a culture of planning, assessment and continuous quality improvement throughout the School.

The OSPA carries out its mission by facilitating:

  1. Monitoring and reporting of progress on the School’s strategic plan;
  2. Data collection to guide benchmarking, data reporting, and decision-making;
  3. The course evaluation process to ensure continued quality improvement of teaching and learning;
  4. Data collection and annual reporting of faculty activity and productivity;
  5. The administration, coordination, monitoring, and use of surveys and survey data conducted within the School;
  6. Assessment of the development of student learning; and
  7. Assessment of degree program effectiveness and impact.

More information on each of these areas can be found on this site.
