Administrative Assessment and Unit Review Process


Administrative Assessment at Georgia State University is in response to the University’s commitment to continuous quality improvement as well as to comply with the SACS requirement to define and monitor outcomes for the administrative units.

The administrative process is a set of activities that combines an annual administrative review process with a more strategic in depth assessment occurring every 7 years.

Our mission is to foster among the University’s administrative departments a culture that values self-examination, quality improvement, strategic thinking, mission-aligned planning and the continuous pursuit of excellence to create a university climate that is accessible, responsive and relevant.
