Thank you for your interest in applying for the 2019 Assessment Leadership Institute. We have now closed the applications process for this year.

Facilitated by two experts with extensive experience in program learning assessment, Dr. Monica Stitt-Bergh and Dr. Yao Hill, the Institute is designed to provide participants with knowledge and tools to plan and facilitate collaborative assessment projects for their programs. During the three days, participants will actively practice facilitating faculty assessment conversations in the Institute. Participants will also have opportunities to build support networks with other colleagues on campus and receive individualized assistance in planning their assessment projects.
