Chaminade University welcomed Cari Anne Ryan as its new assessment specialist for the Center for Teaching and Learning. With her hire, the Office of the Provost completed its trifecta of director (Brian Richardson), instructional designer (Makana Mattos), and assessment specialist (Cari Ryan). Ryan will work with the faculty on course and program assessment, program review, designing and implementing assessment plans, and closing the loop on assessment.
Previously Ryan taught Writing and Research Methods at Pacific Rim Christian University. She also served there as a Student Learning assessment coordinator and library director.
Ryan earned a B.A. in Art History and English from Seton Hall University in New Jersey and an M.S. in Library and Information Science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She is currently a doctoral candidate at the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
