Eric Reich and Marybeth Drechsler Sharp Announce CAS and CL Relationship
Eric Reich and Marybeth Drechsler Sharp announced the new relationship between Campus Labs and CAS at a recent Campus Labs student affairs member meeting in Baltimore, MD.

We are pleased to announce an exciting, new relationship between the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) and Campus Labs. CAS and Campus Labs will be working together to promote the use of data, assessment and self-study for the continued development of quality programs and services that promote learning, development, and achievement in student affairs and student services across higher education.

"The mission of CAS is the promotion of professional standards and the assessment of those standards to ensure quality in education endeavors. By establishing a Campus Labs relationship, CAS can evolve our mission by offering more technically enhanced solutions to support campuses as they answer critical questions around quality and effectiveness," said Marybeth Drechsler Sharp, Executive Director for CAS.

As part of this new relationship, CAS materials such as self-assessment guides will soon be available through the Campus Labs platform, in addition to being available in their present form through CAS. Campus Labs and CAS will be collaborating on new products and enhancements to each respective platform.

"We are excited to begin offering the self-assessment guides through our program review tools to help campus administrators build quality programs that support student learning and success,” said Eric Reich, co-founder and Senior Vice President of Campus Labs. “While this initial offering will be a significant advancement for the profession, CAS and Campus Labs are most looking forward to how we can work together to create new, even more powerful tools that can continue to advance assessment practice.”

It is expected that the CAS self-assessment guides will be available in the Campus Labs platform as of April 2014, with subsequent new product announcements in the summer and fall of 2014.
