The UAC is a standing committee of the University Academic Senate. The committee meets in full session biweekly during the academic year (Mondays, 3:00 - 5:00 PM), and committee members typically meet in small groups in the intervening weeks to complete formal reviews of the assessment reports and strategic plan updates that are submitted to UAC .
Each semester, UAC members review and provide feedback on 30-40 assessment reports and 15-25 strategic plan updates from academic and co-curricular units across the university. The UAC has recently developed and adopted new reporting processes in conjunction with the development of GVSU's new assessment tracking and reporting systems: GVPlan for strategic planning, and GVAssess for the assessment of student outcomes. The recent year-end reports posted below summarize these efforts in greater detail.
