Administrative & Support Unit Assessment

What is administrative and support unit assessment?

Support unit assessment (which includes both administrative units and academic/student support units) is the process by which leadership and staff identify key outcomes, collect and analyze data on those outcomes, and determine ways to continuously improve the internal functions and services offered by the unit. Please see the Support Unit Assessment Guidelines for detailed information (below).
