Institutional Team Attendance
The conference planning committee believes that those institutions sending multi-disciplinary teams to the conference will reap the greatest benefit, as there will be structured opportunities to discuss effective campus collaborations. By having a team, campuses increase the probability of successfully implementing improved assessment and retention programs when they get back to campus. Assessment of learning requires collaboration across both academic and student affairs divisions.
The committee encourages campuses to send representatives from the following areas in order to allow for substantive conversations around how to create change on your campus:
- Senior Student Affairs Officers
- Academic Affairs Administrators
- Assessment Professionals
- Student Affairs Educators
- Faculty Members
- Institutional Researchers
- Educational Researchers
- Testing Officers
