Assessment of Administrative Units

Administrative units at Lincoln University provide substantive and positive contributions to student persistence and success. As such, the assessment of these units is a critical element of the student learning assessment process and campus wide achievement of student learning outcomes. These units are aligned with the themes of the Strategic Plan and the university mission and vision. As such, assessment of these units will provide measures of continuous improvement towards the objectives of the Strategic Plan. Additionally, some units may align with the ILOs and provide support for the General Education curriculum. MSCHE Standard III stresses the importance of evaluation for administrative units to determine their effectiveness in enhancing retention and supporting students throughout their educational experience.
