Feedback Pathways and Mechanisms in UWAA

Our department uses a number of data sources to assess department programs and activities. The type of data and the nature of the item being assessed will determine the frequency of review and timing of response.

Regular department feedback for students is provided at annual autumn orientation, the autumn State of the Department presentation and spring cohort assessment overview.

Data from the online UWAA “Student Feedback” form is received continuously by advising staff, organized, and reviewed regularly with the Associate Chair for Academics and the Department Chair. Student Advisory Committee members are engaged at regularly scheduled meetings for further review and feedback.
