Senate Resolution No. 0203-02R

University at Albany RESOLUTION

WHEREAS an email sent from Associate Provost Donald Steven on the SUNYGED Listserv on March 21, 2003 indicated that the Provost's office "would like to begin discussing the Task Force recommendations on university-wide assessment…"; and

WHEREAS the purpose of general education assessment has been understood to be an evaluation of a campus' programs, not an assessment of individual students; and

WHEREAS it is our belief that assessment needs to be a campus-based activity for the following reasons:

BE IT RESOLVED THAT: the faculty of the University at Albany will continue to follow the General Education Assessment Plan of its own, and not support, embrace, or willingly participate in any SUNY-mandated standardized General Education Assessment Plan.
