Co-curricular Assessment Committee

Following an external review of St. Olaf’s assessment program in 2018, Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment led the effort to create a Co-curricular Assessment Committee, one of the recommendations of the external reviewers.  The purpose of the committee is to serve in an advisory capacity, providing support for existing staff efforts to gather assessment evidence about student learning in the co-curriculum at St. Olaf and advocating for growth and expansion of these efforts.
