According to the Ohio Board of Regents, the Voluntary System of Accountability is a program run by a nationwide consortium of colleges and universities. The performance of each VSA school is evaluated on a wide range of measures, allowing the public to compare the data with other schools around the country.

Details can be found on the Ohio Higher Ed web site.

"Expected Learning Outcomes"

As the result of Miami University's continued emphasis on the use of assessment results to inform the curriculum and improve student learning, we are proud to publicize the outcomes and assessments associated with our Student Success Plan. At Miami, a number of offices work together to insure that we track student outcomes and report on their successes.
