Institutional Effectiveness

Why we assess visual.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness is housed within the Office of the Provost and is led by Dr. Douglas Masterson, Senior Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness. Dr. Masterson also serves as the University’s liaison to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), which is the recognized accrediting body for degree-granting institutions of higher education in the southeastern United States. Dr. Masterson and his team are responsible for managing all administrative duties related to the University’s external accreditation. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness also works very closely with faculty on the annual assessment of all program-level and general education curriculum, as well as with various University councils and committees responsible for the smooth academic operation of the Institution.
