PGCC faculty and staff adopted the idea of a learning
centered college, where students' learning is the motivation for
institutional, course- and program-level, and environmental and service
assessment and change. Though this concept places the student first,
it does not mean to imply that students are the only ones benefiting from
the assessment process. Just like learning, assessment is a continuous
process that yields visible benefits.
