“I really like the teachers and directors that I have been able to work with and learn from. I chose the Niagara County Community College Theatre Arts program because of how diversified the program is and how much I could learn in only two years. After I graduate, I am going to transfer to a four-year college for theatre and deaf studies.”
The assessment of student learning outcomes is not only a key indicator of program effectiveness, it is also one of the standards of excellence identified by the Middle States Commission (Standard 5) and is required through the SUNY assessment initiative.
