UNC-Chapel Hill continuously assesses its performance in fulfilling its overall teaching, research, and public service mission and uses the results to further enhance its effectiveness. In addition, the University is committed to the vision established by Chancellor James Moeser in 2002 to become America’s leading public university. This bold vision and the resulting strategic priorities established in the University’s Academic Plan led to the development of a comprehensive system of assessing outcomes at the institutional level and within individual academic and administrative units.
