Thursday, October 11, 2007
Culver-Stockton College has been awarded a grant from the Hallmark Corporate Foundation totaling $18,000 over three years to provide advanced student learning assessment training for the faculty at Culver-Stockton College.
Culver-Stockton is preparing for the next accreditation evaluation in 2011 by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Higher Learning Commission leads these training conferences to prepare colleges for the next accreditation.
“Culver-Stockton is focused on ‘raising the bar’ relative to academic excellence and student success,” said Dr. R. Joseph Dieker, vice president of academic affairs and dean of the college. “Through assessment, faculty are more effective at improving instruction for student learning. We are grateful for this Hallmark grant to enable our faculty to receive the extensive assessment training needed.”
“The more effective assessment of learning outcomes we do on our campus, the more positive changes we can make to advance student learning at the college level,” added William L. Fox, president of the college. “We have a new generation to get ready, and we owe it to our students and the greater society to ensure that our work in preparing promising young people for useful careers is at its very best.”
Culver-Stockton College has been continuously accredited since 1924 by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges.
