Voluntary System of Accountability   

The University of Central Oklahoma is an early adopter of the Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA).  This program provides information on the undergraduate student experience through a common web reporting template, the College Portrait, to prospective students, parents or other stakeholders.  From the national website you can learn that the VSA is a voluntary initiative for 4-year public colleges and universities seeking to improve undergraduate education.  Developed through a partnership between the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC), the VSA is designed to help institutions meet the following objectives:

  1. Demonstrate accountability and stewardship to the public.

  2. Measure educational outcomes to identify effective educational practices.

  3. Assemble information that is accessible, understandable, and comparable.
