Assessment of Institutional Effectiveness
AIU is committed to continuous improvement of its academic programs and student services. Assessment at AIU is an ongoing process that evaluates the effectiveness of every aspect of the University. Data is regularly gathered and analyzed for the purpose of making improvements where needed. The University’s model of institutional effectiveness and planning is based on the student as the center of the educational experience. Thus, students, along with all other University stakeholders, may be asked to participate in various types of assessment activities, including surveys, focus groups, nationally standardized assessments, and faculty review of course deliverables. Student confidentiality is protected in all University assessment processes. The information gathered from assessment activities is used to improve student learning, services and the overall institution. AIU requests student involvement in the assessment process to further enhance the benefits to students and their educational experience.
The University reviews its academic programs on a regular basis to ensure relevancy with current employment requirements and market needs. As deemed appropriate, AIU may change, amend, alter or modify program offerings and schedules to reflect this feedback.
