The Office of Assessment, Trinity College, was formed in 1999 by former Dean of Trinity College, Professor Emeritus Robert J. Thompson and former Director Dr. Matt Serra. As the Curriculum 2000 was being shaped and later implemented, Dean Thompson and Dr. Serra recognized the importance of parallel efforts to understand the impacts of this new design for undergraduate teaching and learning. Among the Office of Assessment's chief responsibilities is supporting the multidisciplinary endeavor to assess, discuss, and create lasting positive change for undergraduate education. 

The Office of Assessment, Trinity College is part of a larger network of Duke personnel engaged in study of undergraduate learning and development. A description of these units and our points of overlap is available via download below.
