  • Provides data in support of the college’s assessment activities and in accordance with Middle States accreditation standards.
  • Facilitates the administration of external surveys, such as the CIRP Freshman and Senior Surveys, Your First College Year (YFCY) and National Survey of Student Engagement(NSSE).
