About the College
. . . .
Assessment Over the past several years, County
College of Morris has embraced outcomes
assessment, with departments in all divisions
designing and implementing assessment plans and
processes to determine the effectiveness of their
programs and services.  These ongoing assessments
have resulted in continuous improvements in the
classroom and across the campus. Today, the
campus community speaks the same language of
assessment, departments share common goals toward
improvement, and individuals recognize that an
institutions overall effectiveness in educating
its students is measured in the effectiveness of
every one of the programs and services it
delivers. Assessment plans of both academic and
administrative departments have been posted on
the colleges website in an effort to inform the
campus community and to share with our external
constituencies the ways in which the College is
monitoring, improving, and enhancing student
