Rob Flaherty

Because of the close ties between teaching, learning and assessment, the OTL now includes academic program assessment as part of its responsibilities. The new Director of Academic Assessment, Dr. Rob Flaherty, joined the OTL staff on October 3, 2013.

Rob has a PhD in social psychology, and his background includes 10 years as a faculty member (two as department chair) as well as several years of administrative experience with faculty development and assessment. Find out more about Rob by viewing his portfolio page:

Like all of us in the OTL, Rob is here to help (not just to collect reports). The role of the Director of Academic Assessment is to provide guidance and consultation to all academic programs at the University. For more on the purpose and function of program assessment at DU, please visit the assessment page on the OTL website. Additional resources on assessment are also available on a new assessment portfolio site:

Rob is located just around the corner from the OTL in room 317 in the Anderson Academic Commons. Drop in and say hi (or reach him by email: or phone: 1-6012).
