As national and institutional pressures to adopt reporting student success grow, understanding these changes and the impact on our staff is important. This case study looked at a student affairs division at a large urban university in the southwest to better understand the changes of perceptions of assessment. The themes found were: 1.) assessment was not to be feared, 2.) SAD was contributing to the larger campus voice, 3.) assessment was a must have for departments, and 4.) good professionals use assessment. The implications toward practice in a culture of assessment and future research directions are discussed.
