Cami Cooley, lead academic planning and assessment coordinator for the College of Southern Maryland, has been selected to be president for the Maryland Community College Learning Assessment Group (MCCLAG) starting this June. A recognized statewide affinity group for assessment professionals, Cooley will represent CSM.
I am truly honored to represent the College of Southern Maryland at MCCLAG and to have been elected to this position, said Cooley, a resident of Welcome.
In September 2010, the Maryland Council for Community College Chief Academic Officers (M4CAO) approved the creation of MCCLAG, one of the first of its kind in the nation. Its membership is open to community colleges in Maryland and Washington, D.C. as well as for those members engaged in the assessment of learning. MCCLAG meetings involve discussions about assessment software, measurement of core learning areas, program assessments, experiences with Middle States, relevant state and federal laws and other topics related to student learning outcome assessments in Maryland.
Cooley joined MCCLAG in 2011. The group provides a forum for learning outcomes assessment leaders to share ideas and best practices from their respective schools.
The information and support that MCCLAG provides has been, and continues to be, indispensable, she said.
