On May 15, 2015, the Office of Academic Assessment hosted an on-campus free mini-conference to share the information learned by a small team of faculty who attended the Higher Learning Commission’s Annual Conference in late March. Forty-six members of the campus community pre-registered (25 of those with faculty status). There were at least six additional faculty members and more than four additional staff members who also attended at least one session.
