  • Leadership in the assessment of MSU's degree programs as well as the establishment of measures and expected outcomes for steady, campus-wide advancement.
  • Leadership and coordination of the University's strategic planning process.
  • Leadership and support in the SACSCOC program accreditation process.
  • Oversight of student testing including Praxis exams, the General Educational Development (GED) test, ACT residual tests, the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Miller Analogies Tests (MAT), Compass exams, and distance learning.
