Keeling & Associates Assessment
Mizzou is conducting a comprehensive assessment of its academic and personal support programs and services for students, with the intention of providing a seamless, student-centered experience that contributes to student success and positive outcomes.
Keeling & Associates LLC (K&A) will work with Mizzou to facilitate the assessment and development of a long-term strategy in a transparent, inclusive process that will be informed by the thoughts and ideas of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students; staff; senior administrators; and faculty and academic leadership.
Two overarching perspectives will guide K&A’s work:
- The value of well planned, coordinated, and implemented student programs and services in promoting student recruitment, retention, persistence, and success; and
- The importance of thinking differently and embracing change in creating distinctive structures, collaborations, and methods to advance student success and broadly elevate the quality, value, and outcomes of the student experience.
