Every eight years, each department undergoes a self-study based on annual reports assessing student learning. Review findings provide opportunities for improved assessment methods and departmental success. Institutional Research provides data used in these self-studies.
The WASC Senior College and University Commission ensures that accredited institutions are fulfilling their missions in service to students and the public good. It certifies eligibility for federal funding, including student access to federal financial aid. Institutional Research provides data as needed for the various reviews performed by the Commission.
