About

The Advancement of Student Learning Council (ASLC) was developed to instill and sustain a culture of systematic student learning assessment in all quarters of the University. ASLC's goals include training faculty and co-curricular professionals in their respective schools or major areas in effective and meaningful assessment practices and facilitating annual and 5-year program reviews in the University's respective schools and major areas. ASLC works closely with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness in channeling aggregated data aligned to the University's Institutional Educational Objectives. The ASLC also offers programs undergoing 5-year program reviews with feedback on the quality of their critical inquiry process and use of evidence to support their program improvement plan.
