Continuous Improvement in Academic Affairs 

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is committed to continuous improvement in academic affairs in order to link periodic review and annual assessment to the broader strategic goals of the academic unit, campus, and/or university and to evaluate the budgetary resources necessary to achieve such goals.


Assessment Efforts

The university engages in multiple assessment efforts to promote continuous improvement.

Examples include:

Rutgers University Learning Goals

Rutgers University graduates should possess the skills and knowledge to be responsible citizens and productive contributors to society in their workplaces and their intellectual, cultural, and social endeavors. Therefore the university community will work to provide the education that supports these learning goals.

Continuous Improvement Processes by CLU

Each chancellor-led unit (CLU) has developed a procedure or policy that articulates the assessment process, with the goal of continuous improvement. Such procedures or policies are subject to approval by the executive vice president for academic affairs. The intent is to ensure that each CLU has sufficient latitude to define a continuous improvement process appropriate to its mission and to document evidence of assessment and continuous improvement to the Middle State Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).
