Assessment moved to


The College of Charleston works to improve its programs all the time. We do this by assessing our academic programs, along with the offices that support them. The Advising Center and the Center for Student Learning are examples of programs that support your work in the classroom. We also assess the administration. When we find areas we can improve, we design plans to meet that goal.
