Statement on the Uses of Student Work
The university community maintains a commitment to excellent educational experiences and high-quality programs for all students. Consistent with practices at other institutions and the expectations of our accrediting agency, the University Studies Program routinely engages in self-evaluation and assessment.
One factor considered in the self-evaluation, assessment, and improvement process is a review of student coursework, including exams, papers, written assignments, and presentations. If student coursework is selected for review in this process, names, grades and any other identifying information are removed prior to review. The documents selected are subject to review by a limited cohort of University personnel for the sole purpose of improving learning outcomes. The process has absolutely no effect on student grades or academic standing.
