In May 2011 the Faculty Senate established a new standing committee, the Learning Assessment Committee (LAC). The charge of this committee is defined in the Faculty Constitution, Section 5.11 as follows:
“The Learning Assessment Committee provides faculty guidance and oversight on the processes for assessing student learning outcomes at the course, program, and institutional levels, and considers and advises on college-wide policy and best practices in learning assessment.”
The chair of the committee is the Vice President of Assessment, with each academic department having four or more members it is entitled to elect a representative to this committee. Departments having less than four members will caucus as prescribed in the Faculty Constitution to elect a representative.
