The Office of Assessment, Accreditation and Program Review will hold its third annual Assessment Workshop and Appreciation Luncheon Wednesday, April 6, at 9:30 a.m. in the Brady Center in Nitschke Hall.

Linda Suskie, an internationally recognized expert on higher education, will be the keynote speaker. Suskie has taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level, worked for seven years as a vice president at the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, and published two books on assessment: Assessing Student Learning: A Common Sense Guide and Five Dimensions of Quality: A Common Sense Guide to Accreditation and Accountability.



Suskie’s approach focuses on assessment and accreditation and their purpose in helping every student get the best possible education, according to Dr. Alana Malik, university assessment director in the Office of Assessment, Accreditation and Program Review.

“This luncheon will provide UT with an outsider’s perspective on our current assessment process. [Suskie] will inform the UT community on the importance of assessment and how it directly correlates to student learning and development,” Malik said.

The workshop, “The Collaborative Endeavors of Assessment,” will go from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will be followed by the lunch and keynote from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Lunch is provided, and faculty, students and staff of the University are welcome to attend the free event.
