The Student Affairs Assessment Committee is looking forward to seeing you for the 2020 Student Affairs Learning Symposium, Investing in Learning: The Cost of Asking, The Value of Knowing, The Profit from Action. This symposium will be on April 2nd from 1:00 – 5:00 in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. The symposium is recommended for all individuals in the division, not only those doing the assessment work in your areas. Join us for an afternoon of learning that will conclude with a poster session highlighting department assessment efforts and ongoing projects. This event is free and open to all members of the Student Affairs division.

Come back soon for a schedule of sessions.
Each department is strongly encouraged to submit a poster for the session to capture “where are you now?” in your assessment plan, or outcomes of an assessment project(s) in your area. These projects can be ongoing and do not need to be completed by the poster session on April 2nd. This is a learning process and the purpose of this event is to highlight the things we have learned about our programs and about the process. We invite you to submit a poster as a digital file to Carol Knutson (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9:00 AM on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. Posters submitted by this deadline will be printed (at no expense to you) and delivered to the Great Hall for the poster session on April 2nd.
