Portland State in partnership with Oregon State University and the University of Oregon held the first annual Oregon Assessment Conference (OAC) in student affairs on Sept 5, 2014. This first Oregon statewide student affairs assessment conference provided an opportunity for colleagues across the state to explore the expanding realm of measuring student learning in a variety of educational contexts. For a first effort, the organizers were thrilled to have 90 people attend. Moreover, EMSA staff presented, including Vicki Wise, Director for Assessment & Research; J.R. Tarabocchia, Outreach & Advancement Coordinator; Greg King, Advisor in Student Activities and Leadership Programs; and April Kusters and Katherine Wascisin both in Student Legal Services. To learn more about this conference visit
