This interactive workshop will provide guidance for faculty and staff tasked with developing outcomes assessment reports for SACSCOC accreditation. It will emphasize preparing reports due on May 15, 2020 that effectively communicate gains realized in student learning outcomes. This spring, the focus is on reporting results of the assessment methods, including analysis of the collected data, preparing action plans, and documenting evidence of continuous improvement. This workshop is designed to be a highly practical, hands-on training. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the session that best fits the program they assess. However, any session can be attended, since much of the information covered will be relatively similar, although the focus will be slightly different.

This workshop supports the university’s goal to provide the necessary services, resources, and infrastructure to support the university’s strategic direction.

This event has been postponed until the fall 2020 semester. More information will be sent out as it is available.

Retaining a diverse population of students begins prior to students being admitted. The hard work begins with building an academic community. The Department of Communication Disorders has graduated a majority minority graduate cohort for two years in a row. Currently the undergraduate program is majority minority. Fostering this kind of growth of a program in a profession where only 6% of its members are from an underrepresented group nationally, requires building an academic community that is diverse, accomplished, and collegial. This workshop will present lessons learned and strategies programs can use to support the success of all students from admittance to graduation and beyond.

Learner Objectives:
1. Discuss ways to recruit and retain talented faculty.
2. Identify ways to diversify the applicant pool for graduate programs.
3. List ways to help decrease attrition risks for students.
4. Describe ways to mentor undergraduate students through the pipeline to graduate school.
5. Connect the importance of engaging alumni with retention and success of current students.

This workshop will address the university’s stated mission and shared value of promoting a diverse student body and inclusive campus community and its goal to promote the success of all students.



Presenters: 
Dr. Valarie Fleming, Professor and Chair, Communication Disorders
Dr. Celeste Domsch, Associate Professor, Communication Disorders
