About ANNY

ANNY was formed in the summer of 2010 by higher education professionals representing the State University of New York (SUNY), the City University of New York (CUNY), and New York’s private colleges and universities.  The group’s primary objective was to create a state-wide network to stimulate dialogue and the exchange of ideas related to assessment across institutions and to provide support and resources to those committed to meaningful assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness.


The mission of ANNY is to advance the quality assessment of institutional effectiveness and to enhance the success of institutions of higher education and their students within and beyond New York State.

Core Principles

ANNY’s decision-making and actions are guided by the following core principles:

  • Continuous Improvement.  Obtaining and using information informs decisions and enhances student learning and student success.
  • Inclusiveness.  Diverse points of view are fundamental, including views from different types of institutions, different approaches to assessment, and different units and activities within institutions.
  • Collaboration.  Collaboration among professionals from different aspects of an institution, including faculty, staff, and administrators, supports effective assessment.
  • Professional Development and Networking.  Professional development is important for effective assessment in higher education, and networking is an important source of professional growth and development.
  • Cost Effectiveness.  Effective organizations provide significant value for each dollar of investment.
