UMCES Institutional Assessment

UMCES Institutional Assessment

UMCES received accreditation from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. As part of the accreditation process, UMCES needs to assess and communicate its goals better. The Institutional Assessment evaluates how successful UMCES is at meeting its goals of scientific research, public service, and education. We will do this by working through the 5-step report card process and producing a report card-like assessment for public consumption. This assessment will inform not only the accreditation process, but also the 2018 UMCES Strategic Plan. The Institutional Assessment assesses three categories: Institutional goals, operational effectiveness, and education, using nine total indicators.
