As part of accreditation activity by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the Apparel Merchandising and Management program engages in a variety of assessment activities. These activities assist the program in determining student learning outcomes and measuring student performance against these outcomes. The documents included in this section are representative of the indicators the program uses to evaluate itself.
The outcomes are based on the competencies identified by the American Apparel and Footwear Association’s (AAFA) Human Resource Leadership Council competency criteria for program endorsement. They are also cognizant of the International Textile and Apparel Association’s (ITAA) Four-Year Baccalaureate Program Meta-Goals.
