“Assurance of learning and impact create the perfect crossroads for faculty to engage.  Nowhere do we have the potential for greater impact than in helping our students learn and improve.”

Karen Tarnoff, Associate Dean for Assessment and International Programs, College of Business and Technology, East Tennessee State University

As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. Consequently, the business education industry has placed a renewed emphasis on accountability and impact in assessment. To respond to this development, we must reinforce that assessment and impact are even more important and make them a driving force throughout our institutions.

The Assessment and Impact Conference is your opportunity to explore current trends and global best practices, network with peers and experienced accreditation volunteers, and get a glimpse at what peer institutions are doing to stay current in impact and assurance of learning (AoL).

Whether your institution has recently begun the assessment process, measuring impact, or is looking to take your AoL systems to the next level, this conference offers ample opportunities to gather new knowledge and insight to put a strong assessment system and impact framework into place.

Who Should Attend

Faculty, department chairs, associate deans, deans, and those involved with faculty development, in charge of an institution's assurance of learning programs, new to assessment, experienced in assessment, and working on obtaining or extending AACSB Accreditation at their school.
