The HBCU collaborative is composed of assessment leaders dedicated to advancing student learning, institutional quality, and student success – not as separate efforts to be addressed for compliance purposes – but based in a deep appreciation and understanding of their learners coupled with a desire and drive to continuously improve while bringing their voices, leadership, and experiences to the assessment conversation writ large.
Natasha Jankowski, Director, National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment
