What We Do

The Office of Student Affairs Assessment & Planning is responsible for coordinating the assessment efforts within the Division of Student Affairs.

Using both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, student affairs assessment projects are designed to:

  • Identify student needs
  • Measure student satisfaction
  • Plan for student development
  • Assess outcomes
  • Assess student learning outside the classroom
  • Monitor campus climate

The student data that we regularly collect, analyze and report, serves as a resource for many Northwestern University departments, faculty and staff.
