In May 2011, the Faculty Senate established a new standing body, the Learning Assessment Committee (LAC). The charge of this committee is defined in the Faculty Constitution, Section 5.11 as follows:

“The Learning Assessment Committee provides faculty guidance and oversight on the processes for assessing student learning outcomes at the course, program and institutional levels, and considers and advises on college-wide policy and best practices in learning assessment.”

Each academic department that has four or more members is entitled to elect a representative to this committee. Departments with less than four members caucus to elect a representative.

Mission and Statement on Assessment

The Learning Assessment Committee considers outcomes assessment an integral part of the educational mission of Bergen Community College. Participation by department members and administrative units is strongly recommended. In pursuit of this mission, it is expected that each academic and administrative unit take responsibility and ownership of assessment activities within its unit.
