In an effort to support continuous improvement, OIEP in collaboration with MAAC has implemented a holistic review process of annual assessment submissions in Tk20.

Appointed by leadership from within each academic college or school, the university library, and the honors college, member responsibilities include acting as ambassadors to the larger university, providing purpose and instruction as to the critical nature of assessment. MAAC is chaired by Matthew DeSantis, Executive Director of Institutional Effectiveness in OIEP.
