Office for Institutional Assessment

Centers and Institutes

studentClemson University has a systematic approach to annual assessment of all academic and non-academic programs, services, and departments including centers and institutes.  The assessment process is divided into two segments:  a planning document submitted December 15th and an annual report with analysis of the facts and findings submitted the following October 15th.  The parts of the annual assessment records include mission, specific measurable outcomes/objectives, identified measures with metrics, results of measures, action plans, and an analysis of the whole assessment record.  In addition, all centers and institutes undergo a comprehensive fifth year review.
