Evaluation and Assessment

The Evaluation and Assessment program of the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) assists colleagues in making evidence-based decisions for their programs and services. With increased calls for greater accountability in higher education, it is imperative that student affairs educators rely on both empirical and trustworthy data when designing intentional and student-centered learning environments. This program assists DSA staff in demonstrating how effectively they fulfill their department’s mission and desired learning outcomes.


The French program explores the diverse literatures, identities, and cultures of the French-speaking world. All courses are taught in French, provide intensive work in oral and written expression, and are approached from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students may meet prestigious artists, intellectuals, and government figures hosted by the department.


The Arabic program introduces students to Arabic language and culture. All courses are taught in Arabic and  provide intensive work in oral and written expression. The language curriculum can be complemented with courses on the Middle East and North Africa offered by departments such as History, Religious Studies, and Anthropology and with off-campus study program options.
