Successful Assessment at Temple

Colleges and their departments are creating new ways of communicating program goals to students.  When students have program information in an accessible format, they can make decisions in accordance with their budgets, interests, and professional aspirations. 
With over three hundred programs and thousands of courses across the university, each with a unique approach and methodology, it always a challenge for programs to get all pertinent details out to students in an ever-changing environment.  
The College of Science and Technology is establishing a new standard of best practice at Temple by creating an accessible format for reaching students.  Their website is designed to give students easy access to programs, their goals, course scheduling flow charts, undergraduate bulletins, and course descriptions--all in one easy to ready page.
