The University of North Carolina at Charlotte was named as one of just five members of the 2018 class of Excellence in Assessment designees, a national program aimed at recognizing universities conducting a comprehensive assessment of student learning outcomes as a means to drive internal improvement and advance student success. The Excellence in Assessment (EIA) designation is the first national designation of its kind, spotlighting institutions that successfully integrate assessment practices across campus, providing evidence of student learning, and using assessment results to guide institutional decision-making and improve student performance.
Current trends and those yet unimagined will continue to influence and shape higher education. The purpose of the Office of Assessment and Accreditation is to provide leadership and support in the University's effort to educate students and anticipate their needs in an ever changing environment. In this vein, the Office will contribute to faculty and staff's pursuit of offering internationally competitive programs, exemplary undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, and community engagement initiatives by building partnerships and intelligence, thinking strategically, and listening to understand.
