Student Affairs Assessment Framework

Student Affair’s Student Learning and Assessment is also committed to the systematic gathering of information for the purposes of accountability, program improvement, and the enhancement of student learning.

Student Affairs departments are asked to regularly collect data and share their findings with university stakeholders. With the development of the division’s Work Plan 2020, we have created an assessment and data framework that categorizes findings and outcomes. The framework includes three pillars and are aligned to the five SUNY Excels measures. Our assessment framework pillars are:

Measuring student involvement, and factors that influence student engagement, to ensure a vibrant student body, rich in pride for the university and UAlbany traditions.

Evaluating educational programs, services, and activities that enhance our students’ intellectual, social, cultural, professional and spiritual development.

Assessing activities and services, through success metrics, to safeguard a fostering and enriching student experience that develops and prepares students for life after college.
