NAU participating in nationwide public accountability report

Northern Arizona University has joined a new initiative to help prospective college students, their families and other stakeholders compare public colleges and universities.

NAU is an early adopter of the “College Portrait,” a custom report of participating schools designed to provide consistent, comparable and transparent information on the undergraduate student experience. Each report includes characteristics of the university and its students, the cost of attendance, student engagement with the learning process and core educational outcomes.

The College Portrait is a product of the Voluntary System of Accountability project, a partnership between the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. The project is designed to help institutions meet the following objectives:

  • demonstrate accountability and stewardship to the public
  • measure educational outcomes to identify effective educational practices
  • assemble information that is accessible, understandable and comparable

Information about the Voluntary System of Accountability project is online.
