The Academic Assessment Unit (AAU) coordinates all academic institutional assessment and planning activities. It centralizes University academic assessment functions and facilitates the following activities: Periodic Program Reviews, Program learning outcomes assessment, General Education program learning outcomes assessment, and KPI tracking. In addition, the AAU provides technical assistance (training, data, KPI tracking) for unit-level quality assurance assessments as needed for non-academic administrative units.
The AAU closely coordinates with the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA), which administers and analyzes surveys and tests, and collects other forms of institutional data for internal/external assessment and reporting. The AAU is chaired by Dr. Ali El Hajj and reports to the Provost.
