The current organizational structure of the Office of Student Affairs Research and Evaluation was recommended to the Vice Provost for Student Affairs in 1998. This recommendation was the outgrowth of many years of work by the Student Affairs Assessment Committee. The Student Affairs Assessment Committee was one of the original Student Affairs Campus Compact Initiatives.
The Assessment Committee developed the initial guidelines for Student Affairs departments regarding the Best Practices for Student Affairs Assessment at Oregon State University.
