Action Step 1:

• Searches for replacement faculty positions for the 2008-2009 academic are underway in the School of Education and School of Business. These positions will improve the capacity of both schools to provide graduate education in the M.Ed. and MBA programs, respectively.

• Two additional Graduate Teaching Assistantships were established this year.

Action Step 2:

• A graduate faculty workshop was held at the start of the fall semester with a focus on the adult learner and expectations of graduate teaching. Follow-up activities are being planned by the Center for Teaching Excellence.

• A workshop for Graduate Assistants is being developed by the Center for Teaching Excellence

Action Step 3:

• A Graduate Student Satisfaction Survey was completed in October with a response rate of 42% of all current students. The results have been analyzed by the Director of Institutional Research, and are being utilized by all graduate programs to begin improvements in advising and other programmatic matters.

Action Step 4:

• The Vice President of Research and Graduate Studies has meet with the Director of Admissions and the Registrar to expand a cooperative effort in providing quality support services based, in part, upon the results of the Satisfaction Survey. A more effective plan for processing prospective student inquires has been implemented.

Action Step 5:

• Graduate student enrollment numbers and student progress suggest that we will meet our goal of graduating 40 students with master’s degrees or post-baccalaureate certificates.
