Faculty Assessment Organizers (FAO)

Academic assessment is led by Faculty Assessment Organizers (FAOs), with one FAO appointed for each undergraduate major, stand-alone minor and graduate program. 

As assessment organizers, FAOs facilitate the assessment activities of their programs, including 

  • the assessment of at least one program learning outcome annually
  • discussion of findings, including the identification of any actions suggested by the findings
  • implementation of resulting actions, including any that address the assessment strategy itself
  • development of a summary report that is shared with the school dean and the Senate Administration Council on Assessment and Planning (SACAP)
  • the review, dissemination (to colleagues), and implementation of SACAP feedback as appropriate

FAOs also facilitate academic program review, a comprehensive, peer-review based review that each program undertakes once every seven years.

In conducting this work, FAOs are supported by their school-based assessment coordinators.
