Institutional Research and Assessment

The Center institutional research team will collaborate with faculty to assess for improvement in student learning and teaching effectiveness. We will disseminate assessment results to appropriate publics – students, faculty, alumni and partner with faculty who wish to present and publish in the scholarship of teaching. Research findings from NSSE and from internal Wofford assessments will be made available to appropriate campus constituencies on an annual basis with a view towards providing faculty and departments with understandable and actionable data that reflect the student’s learning experience.

The Dean of the Center for Innovation and Learning is also the College Director for Institutional Effectiveness and as such is responsible for guiding the College through all reporting processes for reaffirmation through our regional accreditation agency, the Commission on Colleges and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

In 2012, the College submitted a successful Fifth Year Interim Report to CoC / SACS and is now beginning preparation for its 2017 decennial report.
