Welcome to the Office of University Assessment (OUA) at Florida A&M University (FAMU).
The assessment program at FAMU aims to promote a culture of continuous improvement.
It is an integral component of the university’s commitment to sustaining and enhancing
academic quality and student experiences. The mission of the OUA is to promote a
culture of evidence at FAMU through the implementation of a manageable and sustainable
assessment process that leads to quality program and service improvement. The OUA
achieves this mission by providing support to all academic programs and administrative
and educational support units through building capacity for best practices in assessment
and continuous quality improvement.
The assessment activities permeate all levels of the university and target four primary
areas: entry-level knowledge and skills, general education outcomes, program/divisional
outcomes, and students, graduates and alumni satisfaction. These efforts span multiple
institutional levels - from university-wide assessments to assessments conducted by
individual academic programs and administrative and educational support service units.
The Office of Academic Affairs has established the Institutional level Assessment
Committee (ILAC) to guide and monitor the assessment efforts and to make recommendations
for improving programs and services.
