Message from the Dean

 

University of Guam

College Academic Affairs Committee (L to R): Dr. Randall Johnson, Chair, Communication & Fine Arts; Troy McVey, MFA; Dr. Kim Skoog, Chair, Humanities; Dr. James Sellmann, Dean; Dr. Evelyn Flores, Chair English & Applied Linguistics; and Dr. Kyle Smith, Chair, Social & Behavioral Sciences.

 

Thank you for visiting the webpage of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. This page provides a variety of introductory and supportive materials that will be useful to visitors as well as to the College community of students, faculty, and staff.

This is a place where words and pictures describe activities in the College via the current College newsletter and other participant contributions. You can see glimpses of our courses in action: in the classroom and laboratory; in the field; during study abroad opportunities; and in community and performance settings.

Another part of the site, The Learner Focus Series, is devoted to academic quality and learner assessment. A discussion and examples of “best practice” course syllabus development are provided in the lead article. This is followed by assessment studies of academic operations, such as student registration; assessment studies in which faculty report on what they include in their course syllabi; and learner assessments in various courses and programs. We envision this as a rich and evolving part of the Office of the Dean webpage that will provide tools for faculty: to use as they begin their assessment work; to view as examples similar to assessments they hope to initiate; and to review as examples of assessment reports that document a wide spectrum of student growth in the College’s teaching/learning experience. We expect the public to also be interested in these assessment reports as a source of accountability information.
 
Materials on this webpage provide administrative support to College faculty and staff. A section is provided for all of the College handbooks:

 
We hope you found our webpage useful. Please let us know if there is any other information you would like to see on it.
