Assessment Framework for Administrative Units

The Office of Accountability and Assessment has created the Periodic Administrative Unit Assessment (PAUA) process to assure that the appropriate review and assessment of the administrative functions at SUNY Brockport are undertaken in accordance with the various accrediting agency requirements, in particular the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. This process enables non-academic units in the divisions of Academic Affairs, Administration and Finance, and Advancement to assess the effectiveness of their operations on a five-year schedule.

This includes a documented, organized, and sustained assessment process in place that is linked to planning and resource allocation.
