The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Emory & Henry College

Founded in 1836, Emory & Henry College is a transformative academic community. Ranked as the top liberal arts institution in Virginia (and among the top 50 nationwide) by Washington Monthly, Emory & Henry offers a liberal arts program with an emphasis on writing, reasoning, value inquiry, and knowledge of global concerns. All students complete a core curriculum that integrates classroom work with study and research beyond the classroom – and the campus, ultimately contributing to a deep understanding of regional and cultural differences and challenges. Our education is distinguished by progress toward an expanded sense of personal potential and an enlightened sense of civic responsibility. This transformation, this increase in excellence, is the foundation of our campus culture.
