The Office of Assessment

The Office of Student Affairs Assessment serves The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the Division of Student Affairs by providing the leadership and expertise to advance a culture of evidence upon which the effectiveness of division programs, services, and initiatives are based while maximizing opportunities for student learning.

Guided by student development theory in conjunction with CAS Standards, regional accrediting standards, and current best practices, the Office of Student Affairs Assessment is committed to creating an ethos of active and intentional assessment planning for the purposes of program improvement and accountability.

Mission

The UNCG Student Affairs Assessment Council (AC), in conjunction with Student Affairs Assessment Director, will provide support and direction for the assessment program of the Division. The primary charge will be to promote a culture of assessment with a focus on student learning and an emphasis on improvement of programs and services.

Specific Council Functions

  • Establish approaches to share and maximize assessment efforts and use of resources across departments
  • Identify specific assessment projects that warrant further review by the Council or an appointed sub-team
  • Maintain a set of common learning outcomes and areas of impact to be assessed by all departments
  • Foster and promote a culture of assessment in the Division
  • Contribute to the planning, development, and implementation of Division-wide assessment efforts
  • Coordinate assessment training for the Division based on identified needs
  • Lead SACSCOC accreditation team for student affairs accreditation standards

Assessment Council Composition

The AC is comprised of representatives from across the Division of Student Affairs.  Current membership includes:

  • Jill Beville – Recreation and Wellness
  • Mary Anderson – Dean of Students
  • Kathleen McGirty – Elliot University Center
  • Chris Gregory – Residence Life
  • Brad Wrenn – Veteran Resource Center Coordinator
  • Jim Settle – Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs

See the ‘Workshops and Trainings’ page to schedule a departmental or individual consultation with one of our AC members.

Commitment

AC members will be asked to attend approximately three meetings per semester. Members may also be asked to assist with consultative work and projects on an “as-needed” basis. In addition, members will be offered opportunities to develop and refine their assessment skills and share them with their colleagues within their respective departments and throughout the division. Council members in each area will serve as the liaison to the non-represented department in each area as determined each year by the Director of Student Affairs Assessment and the Council members.
