Office of Academic Effectiveness

The mission of the Office of Academic Effectiveness is to promote excellence in all of UMMC's academic endeavors. The Office of AE directs the campus-wide Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation to comply with core requirements, comprehensive standards, and federal requirements and advises schools on program accreditation.

The Office of Academic Effectiveness oversees institutional assessment as a process to use data to improve academic programs and services. The office also coordinates new program development and navigates academic program changes. This process is informed by the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning, our governing board.

In an effort to complete the learning cycle, the Office of Academic Effectiveness additionally oversees Continuing Health Professional Education activities and accreditation to facilitate lifelong learning for health professionals.
