Neumann University’s Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee (LOAC) became a standing committee of the Faculty Senate in fall 2012. Prior to that inclusion, Neumann University had instituted a Learning Outcomes Assessment Task Force in 2008. The LOAC of the Faculty Senate strives to ensure that all Neumann University academic programs utilize high quality student learning outcomes assessment processes. This is done through the provision of assessment resources and education to all faculty members, as well as through individual consultation with each academic program. The LOAC will support and encourage organized, systematized, and sustained improvement in academic programs using assessment data.
