After a nationwide search, the Auburn University Office of the Provost has announced Megan Good as the new director of academic assessment, effective July 15.

The director of academic assessment is a new position to the university. After increased attention on academic assessment from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges accreditation body, a need for the position was recognized, according to Constance Relihan, associate provost for undergraduate studies.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Good to the university,” Relihan said. “I am looking forward to working with her to strengthen our culture of assessment across campus.”

Provost Timothy Boosinger made the appointment based upon the recommendation of a search committee consisting of faculty, staff and student representation. As director of academic assessment, Good will serve as the provost’s adviser on issues related to academic assessment.

“She will build and preserve momentum to improve the outcomes of the university’s programs and services,” Relihan said.

“I am thrilled to be joining Auburn University this summer,” Good said. “There is a very strong sense of community and I am looking forward to working with faculty, staff and students at Auburn.”

Good plans to learn more about programs’ current assessment opportunities as well as larger goals and priorities.

“Ultimately, I want assessment data to be an asset to all university programs as they work to achieve their goals,” Good said.

Good received her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in business administration at Berea College in 2010. She earned her master’s degree in psychological sciences with a quantitative concentration in 2012 at James Madison University and will acquire her doctorate degree in assessment and measurement in May from James Madison University.
