Carolina’s success in achieving its overall mission and strategic priorities is to a large extent dependent on the quality of its individual academic programs and administrative support services. All academic and administrative units on campus participate in identifying their intended outcomes, developing a plan of measuring and assessing the achievement of those outcomes, and using the results to plan for needed improvements.
