New ALA project: Assessment in Action

ALA has received a substantial multi-year grant for “Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success” (AiA).  Undertaken in partnership with the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), the grant will support the design, implementation and evaluation of a program to strengthen the competencies of librarians in campus leadership and data-informed advocacy.

From the press release: “Each participating institution will identify a team consisting of a librarian and at least two additional team members as determined by the campus (e.g., faculty member, student affairs representative, institutional researchers, or academic administrator). The librarian team leaders will participate in a one-year professional development program that includes team-based activities carried out on their campuses.”
