As institutions develop an institutional effectiveness (IE) mindset, translating that work into student affairs frameworks can be a challenge. This webinar looks through the lens of the work of student affairs/student support services and discusses how their assessment work can be applied to and aligned with IE initiatives. The webinar will describe the work of both IE and student affairs assessment and explore how practitioners can bring these efforts together.
