Virginia Mansfield-Richardson, Associate Dean in the Roy H. Park School of Communications, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Assessment Network of New York (ANNY) for a two-year term. Dr. Mansfield-Richardson also serves on the Ithaca College Academic Assessment Committee.
ANNY was formed in the summer of 2010 by higher education professionals representing the State University of New York (SUNY), the City University of New York (CUNY), and New York’s private colleges and universities. ANNY is a state-wide network designed to stimulate dialogue and the exchange of ideas related to assessment across institutions and to provide support and resources to those committed to meaningful assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness.
The mission of ANNY is to advance the quality assessment of institutional effectiveness and to enhance the success of institutions of higher education and their students in New York State by providing its members with exposure to best practices and emerging trends in assessment through conferences, newsletters, workshops, and other means, as well as creating networking opportunities for its members and facilitating cost-effective professional development and consultation opportunities.
