Assessment at UA Rich Mountain is a holistic process. UA Rich Mountain evaluates its academic departments, non-academic departments, and co-curricular/extracurricular programs. All of our assessment processes are designed to link decision-making, planning, and budgeting with facts, data, and analysis. In support of this goal, the College includes evaluations on several levels including, but not limited to, general education learning outcomes (GELOs), course outcomes, program outcomes, co-curricular outcomes and extracurricular activity success, non-academic department efficiency, student satisfaction data, and Strategic Plan goals. Overall, the goal for institutional assessment at UA Rich Mountain is to ensure the mission that the College provides transformative education to all learners.
