Institutional Effectiveness and SACS Accreditation
The assessment of academic programs is a major responsibility of the Provost. The process includes annual submission of program assessment summaries and then 5-year program reviews. The University Institutional Effectiveness Committee, chaired by the Associate Provost and composed of senior representatives from all College/Schools and administration, provides an experienced level of objective oversight and evaluation of all academic and administrative programs. The Associate Provost is responsible overall for planning, budgeting, organizing, and coordinating activities required for institution-wide assessment including preparations for accreditation with the Southern Association of College and Schools. The Associate Provost is also the UIW liaison with SACSCOC.
