Campus Ministry


Mount St. Mary’s College has a culture of assessment.  This means

  • Community members share a common commitment to improving student learning and a common language to guide this work
  • Students know at the outset what their expected learning outcomes are for the course, the major or program, and the general studies curriculum.
  • Faculty and staff continually assess the nature and extent of student learning.
  • Lessons about student learning inform curricular, pedagogical, and administrative decisions.
  • The goal of assessment efforts at MSMC is to improve teaching and learning.
  • The overall results of student performance will be available to students, faculty, staff and other interested parties on College webpages
