Outcomes Committee

(Academic Senate Committee – Reports to Curriculum and Instruction Council)

Purpose

The purpose of the Outcomes Committee is to provide leadership, tools, training, and support to create an equitable campus culture where outcomes are understood and valued and where assessment functions as a resource leading to improved instruction, curricula, programs, and/or services. The committee oversees outcomes assessment at the administrative unit, course, program, and institutional levels and reports to the Academic Senate through the Curriculum and Instruction Council. The Committee is also responsible for some standards within ACCJC Standard I.B, “Assuring Academic Quality & IE,” and II.A, “Instructional Programs.”
