Mission and Vision


The Office of Assessment provides support for continuous program and unit improvement for all areas by offering various activities including training and education workshops on assessment and what is expected in the preparation for instructional and program accreditation. The assessment program will insure that the university is fostering the maximum growth and development needed by students. The program will allow for the Office of Assessment to gather data on students’ ability to think logically and critically, speak and write effectively, level of mastery of a field of study and other attributes needed to gauge the success of the university and its programs and/or departments. 


The Office of Assessment will work closely with administrators, faculty, staff, and student to provide assessment and process improvement support to academic and administrative units. The assessment program will allow improvement in all academic and department units to position Henderson State University as a top university for student learning, not only in Arkansas, but also in the country.
