The Provost Assessment Scholars is a new special program for students through the Office of Educational Assessment.  These student scholars investigate issues brought to them by “stakeholders” on campus by conducting student-led focus groups.  They analyze the focus group data and provide a summary report and recommendations to the stakeholders on the issue.  More information about the program can be found here: PAS_CL2016
