Linfield's Core Themes

Presented by Susan Agre-Kippenhan, Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs
Tuesday, October 26

In accordance with the NWCCU 2010 Standards, Linfield established four core themes in relation to the Linfield mission of "Connecting Learning, Life, and Community." The NWCCU 2020 Standards emphasize student success through student learning and achievement for all students. Specifically, the NWCCU 2020 standards emphasize improving teaching and learning strategies with an intentional effort to include underrepresented students and first-generation college students. 

We are moving beyond the Core Themes to address 2020 Standards. Join us to discuss using this opportunity to build upon the concepts of our core themes and establish new institutional priorities.

 

Vital Past (VP) and Quantitative Reasoning (QR) Working Group Reports


Presented by Sharon Bailey Glasco, VP Working Group Chair, and Yanna Weisberg, QR Working Group Chair

This past summer the Vital Past (VP) and Quantitative Reasoning (QR) working groups completed assessment for these LC designations. At this virtual FTLL session we will review and discuss the group's findings and recommendations regarding the exemplar submissions for the VP and QR designations and the role instructors can play in better assisting students to meet VP and QR learning outcomes. This discussion will be of particular interest to those faculty who have taught or plan to teach VP or QR courses, but the session is open to anyone interested in the LC curriculum and assessment process. All interested parties are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in this important process.

NWCCU requires an overview of student achievement along with comparative data and information from at least five institutions Linfield will use in benchmarking its student achievement efforts. The Accreditation Steering Committee began addressing these criteria with a review of the institutions used in the last accreditation cycle and expanding the analysis to new schools with more aspirational measures. Join us to learn more about our peer institutions and the criteria used to determine this list.
