Chris Mayer is the associate dean for strategy, policy, and assessment and an associate professor at the United States Military Academy. Mayer is interested in the assessment of student learning at the general education level, as well as accreditation and institutional change.

Mayer was first drawn to the Teagle Scholar program because of its commitment to improving student learning across higher education. He was interested in the various developmental activities and opportunities to impact students across the country.

Mayer believes that the Teagle Scholar program gives institutions the ability to apply what they have learned about how their students are learning. The program not only develops assessment expertise but also guides individuals to lead change in higher education institutions.
