While student affairs assessment has been actively occurring at several institutions since the 1990s, many institutions are looking to elevate (or jumpstart) their assessment processes here. In many cases, this is urgent and priority work in light of accreditation actions or preparation for upcoming reports or visits. This session will level-set by describing the purpose of assessment, explaining student affairs assessment (and variation terms of the work), list benefits of engaging in meaningful practice, identify relevant audiences, and conclude with reflection and a call to action. Participants can engage in Q&A with the presenter and will walk away with several resources to help people move forward in this work.
