Program Assessment Coordinating Committee (PACC)

Consistent with the mission of NJCU, the Program Assessment Coordinating Committee (PACC) is responsible for enhancing the culture of assessment at NJCU.  PACC engages faculty and departments in rigorous and ongoing assessment to improve the outcomes for and success of all of our students.

PACC is a representative body comprised of faculty from the colleges and staff from the Office for Institutional Effectiveness that is charged with:

  • Providing guidance and support in the development of program-level assessment plans;
  • Providing professional development for assessment efforts related to student learning;
  • Providing guidance and recommendations for continuous improvement initiatives related to student learning;
  • Helping to minimize duplication of efforts by leveraging assessment processes to meet the standards of multiple accrediting bodies.

Individual Consultations

PACC has adopted a collaborative model of interaction which brings together professionals with various areas of expertise to develop solutions to assessment concerns.

Do you need help creating measurable Student Learning Outcomes for a new program you are developing? Do you need help mapping your Outcomes? Are you looking for ideas on different types of activities that will align with the Student Learning Outcomes already in place? Do you "have assessment data" but not know what "to do" with it?  Let us help you!
