The University of Rochester's student learning assessment program is school-based and faculty-driven, with central coordination to ensure that the schools' efforts are supported, documented, and shared University-wide.

Assessment Liaisons appointed by their school deans champion the process, working with faculty to develop methodologies that substantiate outcomes and guide improvement of the teaching and learning environment. Assessment data and curriculum revisions are shared with the Office of the Provost and employed to satisfy regional and specialized accreditation requirements. Faculty members with questions about assessing learning are encouraged to contact their school’s Assessment Liaison, listed below.
