The Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) offers general standards for 47 functional areas in higher education. These standards provide programs with a framework for development and assessment. NACA is a CAS organization member. Members have representation on the Council, which creates, revises, and approves the Standards and are also given access to two sets of Standards to share with their members.
The Standards for Campus Activities Programs and Assessment Services are available to NACA members at no charge. The Campus Activities Programs Standards will help you create quality programs that engage students and contribute to their learning. The Assessment Services Standards will help ensure you are conducting effective assessments so that you have data to share your stories of student learning and success.
