The University of Richmond has several mechanisms in place for measuring institutional effectiveness. These include assessment of the following:
- Academic program and general education assessment
- Administrative planning and evaluation
- Academic program review
Institutional Effectiveness oversees these processes by coordinating and providing administrative support and technical expertise to departments. Individual departments and programs are responsible for developing their annual assessment and evaluation plans, conducting assessment and evaluation, and providing our office with a report summarizing the results and how they plan to use them for improvement.
