Eastern New Mexico University’s mission focuses on quality of student learning and teaching. Faculty are the center of the student learning experience and are the most appropriate ones to assess how well the university is meeting its student learning mission. It is imperative that student learning assessment be faculty designed and driven.
Student learning assessment is a process of transformative inquiry and a form of public discourse meant to inform the processes of university to improve student learning. The data gathered in departmental assessment plans provide the faculty with the ability to make informed decisions on teaching, curriculum building and strategic planning.
Our assessment efforts across campus are key in highlighting the excellence occurring in student learning and showing ways to improve it. I look forward to a robust discussion on student learning improvement with you based on your assessment efforts.
