DESCRIPTION AND WORKLOAD

The function of the Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee (LOAC) is to review the annual department and program assessments of learning in all undergraduate majors, as well as to oversee direct and indirect assessment of undergraduate general education requirements. General policy issues identified by the committee shall be reported to the administration and/or appropriate faculty committees for consideration and action.

The committee consists of one faculty member from each distribution area, one faculty member from the Department of Education, one faculty member from an interdisciplinary program, one member of the Tisch Library staff, one representative of Institutional Research, and one representative of the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT). The following administrators serve as ex officio members without vote: one A&S academic dean and the dean of academic advising and undergraduate studies. The chair of the LOAC is voted on by members of the committee on an annual basis. Full-time faculty members in Arts and Sciences are eligible to serve on this committee. Members are appointed to three-year terms.

The committee meets about 4-6 times per academic year. This committee is not appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
