Philadelphia Higher Education Assessment Leaders (PHEAL)

The Philadelphia Higher Education Assessment Leaders [PHEAL] group was formed by Drexel University in 2014 in order to provide a forum for assessment practitioners in Philadelphia area institutions to share best practices, offer presentations, invite guest speakers, and engage in topical discussions of mutual interest and currency. Additionally, PHEAL offers assessment professionals a platform with which to engage in advocacy activities on issues that impact the profession.
