Assessment of Institutional Effectiveness and Student Learning at Ursinus College

Institutional effectiveness is a commonly used “umbrella” term that refers to the level of quality with which an institution delivers the programs and services designed to achieve its educational mission and strategic goals. 

Assessment of institutional effectiveness includes the assessment of student learning, as well as the non-instructional aspects of the college that directly or indirectly contributes to student success. 

All Ursinus academic departments, academic support and student services departments (also referred to as co-curricular departments) and administrative areas endeavor to engage in useful assessment practices that help their areas improve student learning and/or their programs, services, or functions.
