The Wells College Assessment Committee is charged with the development, implementation, and oversight of a comprehensive campus-wide assessment program. With the College mission statement as its guiding force, the Committee is responsible for supporting all areas of the College as they reflect on their effectiveness of achieving their respective goals. For the academic programs (including majors, the First-Year Experience, and the General Education distribution requirements), student learning outcomes will be the focus of the assessment plan and process. And while student learning goals will also be considered in the academic support areas (such as Advising, Disability Services, Library, Career Services, and Off Campus Study) and student life (including athletics and residential life), administrative effectiveness goals will be assessed as well. Such goals will also be the focus of Admissions, Business Services, External Relations, Financial Aid, Registrar, and Student Affairs more broadly.

The approach of the Committee shall not be one that dictates missions or assessment methodologies, but rather shall be one that supports those involved to articulate their goals, objectives, and assessment measures. For all involved, their work must be guided by the College’s mission statement and ultimately student learning and development.

The Committee will review annually assessment reports from each department/area and be responsible for monitoring and reporting to the appropriate on-campus and off-campus constituents the changes that occur as a result of the assessment process.
