University Assessment Committee

University Assessment Committee

The University Assessment Committee (UAC) is designed to foster communication between all colleges, schools, and divisions that facilitate and assess student learning.  Committee members are nominated by their schools, colleges or divisions and appointed by the President.  The UAC works to promote an integrated culture of assessment consistent with the Creighton mission. The committee is charged to coordinate assessment at the University level; represent all academic and co-curricular areas in articulating an integrative assessment program and provide feedback and assistance to programs, colleges and schools to advance efforts to enhance University support for assessment.

Student Life

The UAC provided leadership for the campus as we participated in the Higher Learning Commission's Academy for Assessment of Student Learning, a four-year focused effort on improving the quality and scope of assessment of student learning at Creighton. Admission to the Academy was based on a competitive review of applications from a variety of schools within the HLC's geographic region. As you will see from reading our application to the Academy, we relied on participation from all areas of the university. If you would like to participate in our assessment efforts, email or call Mary Ann Danielson (x2535).
