Academic Assessment

The assessment of individual academic programs is led by department chairs and program directors with the work of faculty members and support of academic deans, and coordinated by the staff of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. All annual reports, including Outcomes Assessment Reports (OAR), which assess student learning, are read by the College-wide Academic Assessment Committee (AAC) to provide feedback regarding best practice in assessment planning. 

Manhattan College uses an external program review cycle in an effort to continuously improve academic departments/programs and administrative units for each student's learning experience. External program review includes regional accreditation, Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), discipline specific accreditation, Council of the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and ABET-Engineering Accreditation Commission and peer review in the School of Liberal Arts, School of Science, and School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
