At The University of Southern Mississippi, assessment of academic programs and administrative units is overseen by The University Assessment Committee. This Committee supports the process of continual self-evaluation and improvement across all academic and administrative units. The Committee’s primary responsibility is to ensure that the institution complies with the Principles of Accreditation for Quality Enhancement published by the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools with regards to assessment as stated in Comprehensive Standard 3.3.1:
The institution identifies expected outcomes for its educational programs and its administrative and educational support services; assesses whether it achieves these outcomes; and provides evidence of improvement based on analysis of those results.
