Administrative and Support Unit Review (ASUR)

Administrative Assessment at Georgia State University is in response to the University’s commitment to continuous quality improvement as well as to comply with the SACS requirement to define and monitor outcomes for the administrative units.

The administrative process is a set of activities that combines an annual administrative review process with a more strategic in depth assessment occurring every 7 years.

Our mission is to foster among the University’s administrative departments a culture that values self-examination, quality improvement, strategic thinking, mission-aligned planning and the continuous pursuit of excellence to create a university climate that is accessible, responsive and relevant.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness facilitates and coordinates the ASUR process.  The Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness is responsible for preparing and gaining approval of the review schedule from the Committee on Planning and Development, assisting and supporting the ASUR Committee, monitoring the status of action plans and their accomplishments, and managing and cataloging all information related to the process.  The Director of Administrative Assessment and Planning provides orientation sessions to units prior to review, reviews draft self-studies before they are submitted to the ASUR Committee, and staffs the ASUR committee.
