Buffalo State is committed to fostering the academic achievement and personal development of its students. To carry out this commitment, the college continuously gathers information about the effectiveness of its academic programs, the progress of students toward educational and personal goals, and the achievements and perspectives of alumni. This information is used to monitor program effectiveness, to recognize educational trends and opportunities, and to develop a sound, factual basis for academic planning.
Each Buffalo State student is expected to participate in the college’s assessment efforts. Academic programs use various assessment methods. Student participation in these activities may be a completion requirement for some degree programs.
