Assessment

We believe in continuous improvement and regularly engage in assessing the residential experience to determine if we are meeting your needs and providing an environment where you learn, grow and develop.  Below are the major assessment initiatives undertaken and the results.  If you have any questions or suggestions on future assessments, please contact Dr. Ron Binder (binder@pitt.edu).  We welcome your input!
