At Manhattanville College, our mission is to educate students to be ethical and socially-responsible leaders in a global community.

We are committed to ensuring the intellectual, ethical, and social development of each student with a community of engaged scholars and teachers; encouraging each student to develop as an independent and creative thinker in pursuing career and personal goals; and providing a diverse, inclusive, and nurturing environment which develops in each student a commitment to service and leadership within a global community.

Our pledge to educate students is closely tied to our institution-wide commitment to assessment and accreditation. We use various means of direct and indirect assessment to measure Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs), which facilitate student learning while supporting program objectives. We strive for continuous improvement and analyze the data and feedback received on a regular basis, making changes in curriculum and courses as needed. The assessment process has multiple components and includes creating the assessment, implementing the assessment, gathering and analyzing the data collected, sharing the data with the stakeholders, and finally discussing and implementing changes as needed based on data trends. After implementing changes, we continue to collect data so that we can determine the impact or improvement that the change has prompted and share that information with the community.

Assessment is also incorporated into nonacademic areas of the college and used to measure and drive continuous improvement. Working with members of various departments across campus, we can identify Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and use them to measure performance, identify areas in need of improvement, and discuss and implement changes that will help us achieve set goals for nonacademic departments.

At Manhattanville, we support assessment activities for undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees, doctoral degrees, and post-baccalaureate and graduate certificates, as well as General Education. It’s through the collaboration of faculty, staff and administrators that we assist programs as they collect evidence that students are graduating with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the future. Our goal is to create a “culture of assessment” among the Manhattanville community, knowing that our College, its students and graduates will benefit from continuous improvement prompted by organized and effective college-wide assessment.
