The Office of Institutional and Academic Insights’ (IAI) mission is to assist SCU offices and programs turn their operational data into strategic insights and enable the University to “Go Beyond.” To this end, we work with academic programs to identify and assess their Learning objectives and make meaning of them in the broader context of student demographic and performance data.
IAI provides information to leadership in areas of planning, decision-making and is committed to promoting equity by monitoring performance gaps based on demographic factors or matters of prior preparation.
Assessment at SCU is a continual, collaborative process between faculty members, the Office of Institutional and Academic Insights (IAI) and the Assessment and Learning Council (ALC). This collaboration promotes a culture of assessment which supports and verifies student achievement. The process also generates documentation for accrediting bodies that the educational content is effective and provides a cycle of continual curriculum improvement.
