  • Annual Report  ·  Stonehill College
    progress has been made I will continue to work closely with the PACD to implement the recommendations of the report Achievement Record After more than a few years in progress the co curricular transcript went live for the Class of 2018 in 2014 15 Known as the Achievement Record this transcript will certify student participation beyond the classroom in five areas community and volunteer service leadership organizations and sports professional and educational development and recognitions honors and awards Coupled with the Academic Record we have a more complete picture of student engagement and success at Stonehill We are grateful to the work of Linda Dillon Director of Academic Assessment and Linda McNeilly IT Principal Systems Analyst for their work on this project Integrating Assessment into General Education This year we made strides to assess student learning outcomes in the Cornerstone Program of General Education Led by Assistant Dean of General Education and Writing Program Director Todd Gernes we took the following positive steps commenced a qualitative assessment of student work samples in Cornerstone courses Philosophy Religious Studies History and Literature collaborated with the Office of Institutional Planning and Research to implement key surveys Your First College Year and assessments CLA conducted comprehensive student focus groups on Needs and Opportunities in General Education conducted an external review of our learning communities program refined an innovative model of Guided Self Placement into first year writing courses and conducted well attended academic development workshops on the assessment of student writing and integrative learning These efforts position us well as we build a sustainable culture of assessment at Stonehill Unified Retention Plan The entire College community was happy to hear that our first to second year retention rate for the Class of 2017 was 90 While this was an impressive achievement we are resolved to make this a pattern in the years ahead I am pleased that Fr John asked our Director of Academic Services and Advising Joe Dacey to serve as the institutional leader to coordinate retention efforts Joe has worked this year on a number of interrelated goals to support students at risk of not persisting at Stonehill These include developing a predictive model to identify students at risk completing a comprehensive review of the effectiveness of the ACE program and creating a comprehensive follow up communication strategy for students receiving deficient mid semester assessments I am confident that we will continue to make progress on retention Noteworthy Accomplishments New Grant from the Davis Educational Foundation Just as the academic year closed on June 30 the Davis Educational Foundation notified us that it will award the College nearly 234 000 over the next two years to support the Think Act Lead initiative This proposal was prepared over the past year through an interdivisional effort of faculty and staff led skillfully by Deans Craig Almeida and Kevin Piskadlo Through this grant Stonehill will launch Think Act Lead a comprehensive and integrated academic professional personal and spiritual development plan that will engage and empower each student through meaningful and individualized attention conversation and feedback The plan is both a philosophy and a program that will offer each student a transformative educational experience one that will ultimately set the Stonehill experience apart We look forward to engaging faculty and staff as we introduce this exciting initiative NEASC Accreditation This year Stonehill submitted its fifth year Interim Report to our accrediting body the New England Association of Schools and Colleges NEASC Such reports required midway through the ten year reaccreditation cycle provide an opportunity to review efforts progress and plans in a variety of areas including strategic planning assessment resource allocation governance and enrollment management In the report we provided a reflective essay about our efforts to research and identify factors in retention and our analysis of post graduate outcomes NEASC accepted our report without adding new conditions for our consideration NEASC did ask as we prepare for our 2019 comprehensive review that we pay continuing attention to integrating assessment into campus wide efforts achieving our goals to diversify faculty and staff and continuing to enhance the effectiveness of the College s governance and communication structures Thanks go to so many on campus who assisted in the preparation of this report especially Prof Tom Gariepy C S C who served as the principal author of the report Faculty Achievement I commend the work of the Faculty Senate and especially the leadership of Profs Marilena Hall and George Piggford C S C They have worked closely with Fr John and I on a number of curricular and policy issues this year The work of faculty governance is not easy and would be impossible without the effective work of faculty committees Governance Professional Development Standards and Standing Curriculum and Faculty
