What is a student's role in academic assessment?

Students provide useful information about the university, and are occasionally asked to participate in various assessment efforts such as surveys and focus groups. Some are aimed a current students, while others are directed toward former students and alumni. UM-Flint depends on student and alumni participation to continually improve our programs and meet our goals.

How does UM-Flint use the results of academic assessment?
Accreditors require universities to publish assessment results. Information about the mission, goals and outcomes of various programs, as well as measured outcomes are available on this site. Assessment results are summarized and anonymous. Individual students' outcomes are never publicized.
