CELSE Assessment and Evaluation

Plan of Assessment and Evaluation

Each year, the Center will report to the university, its creative and educational activities, receipt of funding, university and public outreach. After the initial 5-year (sunset) review will be conducted according to the CSU Guidelines for Academic Centers and Institutes. If approved for continued operation, the Center will conduct an internal review and submit the results of that review on the required five-year schedule.

The following factors are identified as being central to the mission of the Center and would therefore serve as items to be assessed for the reporting process.

• Seminars and public presentations
