Institutional Research and Decision Support


The Program Review and Assessment Committee (PRAC) is composed of representatives of a broad range of academic and support units. The committee establishes guidelines for comprehensive program review for academic and administrative units and provides guidance for student outcomes assessment throughout the institution. It also provides a forum for the exchange of program review and assessment information and strategies among graduate and undergraduate programs and administrative units.

This committee, which has faculty leadership, funds small grants that promise innovative approaches or improved practice in assessment. It also has the responsibility for preparing campus assessment plans and reports that may be required by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The activities of the committee are supported by staff in the Office of Planning and Institutional Improvement (PAII).
