The mission of the Office of Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes is to facilitate development of assessment plans for academic and other programs. We consult with faculty and staff to assist them with articulating desired student learning and development objectives and deciding the most appropriate ways to measure student achievement of the objectives. We encourage intentional use of the findings generated from these measures to improve student learning and development.

Provost's Office Assessment Committee (PAC)

The Provost’s Office Assessment Committee (PAC) formally replaces what was originally called the General Studies Program Assessment Committee (GSPAC). PAC is the umbrella organization for all assessment activities at MSU Denver. The PAC is an extension of the GSPAC but is inclusive of program assessment as well (both instructional and non-instructional). Mike Monsour is the Chair of the PAC. The PAC works closely with Margaret Puryear, Interim Director of Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes.
