Institutes and Centers Assessment


At the July 18th and 25th Institute and Center Information sessions, it was mentioned that there were pending changes to the SAM assessment requirements and that additional information would be forthcoming.

After reviewing the new SACSCOC assessment requirements, here is the plan of action for Institutes and Centers (C&Is):

  1. For the 2017-18 cycle, submit assessment reports in SAM as has been done in the past. Due October 30th.

  2. For the 2018-19 cycle, review your mission statement in SAM, ExpertNet (the BOG reporting site), and on your websites and publications to ensure congruence across all platforms. Due October 30th.

During the 2018-19 academic year, more information will be forthcoming. Please direct questions to
