Educational Assessment

Our assessment is based upon continuous quality improvement through a systematic process that is faculty-driven and maintains administrative support.

The Assessment Committee is charged to formulate an ongoing and longitudinal assessment plan for the D'Youville School of Pharmacy to manage the collection of assessment data, evaluate assessment data, make recommendations for improving the school's performance, and prepare reports for internal and external audiences. The Assessment Committee is to fulfill its charge in conjunction with the Director of Assessment.
