College Portrait

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.
