Assessments of Academic Majors for Undergraduate Programs at Selected Campuses

Campuses in the State University of New York (SUNY) are expected to formally assess their academic undergraduate majors every five to seven years. We examined whether this was being done at six selected campuses and found that it was. However, we identified the need for improvement in certain aspects of SUNY System Administrationís monitoring of the assessment process.

We recommended that certain actions be taken by System Administration.
