Assessment professionals need to stick together when it comes to sharing best practices resources to managing and sustaining processes for assessment in their division, unit, or institution-wide. This session will focus on “Manageability and Sustainability: The Cornerstone of Institutional Assessment” the theme of this year’s Drexel Assessment Conference and a call to action for all folks who are “keepers of assessment” who have success stories to tell about assessment and improvement at their institution. Together we will discuss, our commitment to academic quality, and acknowledge that the quality of the student academic experience must be the driver behind all assessment and accreditation activities.
Joseph Hawk, Executive Director of Assessment & Accreditation, Drexel University
I am an experienced higher education administrator with a passion for asking questions and using data and research to guide improvement. I work closely with faculty, staff, and administrators to develop and fine-tune institutional effectiveness systems, including assessment of student learning outcomes, general education, and program review. One of the most rewarding aspects of my current role is the opportunity to serve as a campus "consultant" by providing guidance and resources to program directors and unit leads, and empowering them to conduct meaningful assessment of their programs.
