CIC Statement on Assessment

The Council of Independent Colleges has long been a national leader in voluntary efforts to improve the quality of student learning and a strong advocate of institutional autonomy in accountability efforts. Since 2001, CIC has tried to help its member colleges navigate through the array of initiatives that are underway—those by regional accreditors, foundation-supported projects, and various campus efforts—focusing on specific aspects of the overall topic at different times.

CIC's Statement on Assessment summarizes these efforts.
