  • President's Perspective | Wheaton
    on academics one student said I ve been to BRIDGE so I already know all about Wheaton s philosophy of education Part of me wanted to interrupt the conversation and tell both students how important it was for them to attend our mandatory session on academic life at Wheaton College But another part of me just wanted to enjoy the moment for what it showed about how far we have come You see the student who felt like she already knew all about Wheaton grew up in one of Chicago s minority ethnic communities Although she was the first person in her family to attend college she was well prepared and she knew it Through Wheaton s BRIDGE program Building Roads to Intellectual Diversity and Great Education she had spent two summers on campus taking courses with our faculty and being mentored by our students So when this young woman matriculated Wheaton felt like home She was an insider not an outsider Furthermore she was not alone nearly a quarter of her classmates roughly 140 students out of an incoming class of 600 were students of color Wheaton College has come a long way since the days when I was a student and there were fewer than one hundred minority students on the entire campus Today our students belong to a community that more accurately reflects the ethnic makeup of the United States and more adequately prepares them for membership in the worldwide body of Christ in all its cultural diversity We still have a long way to go of course Racial reconciliation is an ongoing work of the Holy Spirit that requires patience sacrifice and persistence So we continue to work hard to make Wheaton feel like home for students of every ethnicity In fact one of our four strategic priorities is to Deepen Ethnic Diversity To that end some of our recent initiatives include relocating the Office of Multicultural Development to the center of student life in the Beamer Center opening Shalom House a residential program for men and women from diverse back grounds to live in community and work toward greater unity and racial understanding and offering the first five Nieves Scholarships which similar to the Church Scholarships for African American students provide full tuition for Latino students Perhaps the most significant change is an addition the Trustees have made to Wheaton s Community Covenant in which we now make a commitment to pursue unity and embrace ethnic diversity as part of God s design for humanity and practice racial reconciliation as one of his redemptive purposes in Christ Isa 56 6 7 John 17 20 23 Acts 17 26 Eph 2 11 18 Rev 7 9 10 Although pursuing unity and embracing ethnic diversity were important priorities for us already they had never been fully or explicitly articulated in our Community Covenant So the Trustees directed me to work with the Wheaton community to draft a revision for their discussion and approval The statement we finally

  • Wheaton College Technology Plan | Wheaton
    accommodate a wide range of pedagogical styles The ability to measure student and course success through included rubrics and tools positions the College to support the new Christ at the Core general education requirements Enhanced communication and community building capabilities extend the classroom experience and support student engagement Creating and supporting efficient methodologies that enable Graduate School online education while also providing full access to campus resources is key to ensuring the success of the program Being able to leverage existing campus technologies and developing new support structures that are repeatable will create a scalable learning infrastructure Technology Enhanced Spaces include learning and event spaces of all sizes across campus Developing models that put the appropriate level of technology into each space without over building will enable the College to better plan technology refresh cycles Learning spaces must be streamlined easy to use allow for self operation and support video connections Lecture capture spaces will be added as dictated by campus need As technology proliferates budget models that are incrementally increased are fundamental to keeping these spaces adequately designed Digital collaboration spaces for students provide community and skill building areas that prepare Wheaton students for a media enriched world Flexible well positioned and equipped spaces that encourage the use of consumer technologies both in and outside of the classroom will enhance the Wheaton education process AIT is committed to exploring partnerships with faculty and external resource providers to develop reasonable technology solutions that support institutional research Infrastructure and Security The College s online data and other resources should be available easy to use and appropriately secured with risk mitigation mechanisms in place In response to an increasing threat landscape security policies education and engagement are critical for success Providing services that make doing the right thing the easiest thing to do is also a necessary element for an effective strategy Fortifying data security across campus is a top priority Areas of focus include increased user security training more timely updates of applications and systems and the encryption of institutional data that is centrally managed Increasingly technology service providers are offering end to end solutions frequently referred to as in the cloud Cloud services allow a vendor to maximize economies of scale across their customer base while investing significantly in ensuring data and platform security The security level provided by these vendors frequently surpasses the capabilities of Wheaton College Concerted effort must be placed in acquiring new services that are hosted in the cloud and moving existing services to the cloud as appropriate Wheaton College currently has over 30 departments accepting credit cards as a form of payment this exposes the institution to significant security and compliance risk In partnership with the Controller s Office a Purchase Card Industry PCI Compliance Committee has been formed to quantify the risk and develop policies and procedures to reduce that risk To the extent possible the College intends to outsource credit card processing and alleviate some aspects of the work effort involved in compliance The Controller s office must be consulted in advance of payment business process development Network Access Control provides an added layer of security to the College network by allowing only authorized computers to connect The current platform is cumbersome and provides significant challenges to end users The college must identify and deploy a more streamlined solution The campus wired and wireless network is vital to the functioning of the College The increased numbers of devices continually added by students the increased reliance on cloud based services and the soon to arrive internet of things requires that Wheaton College invest in scalable network bandwidth redundancy and re engineering to meet computing needs Wheaton College is a beacon of Christian hope and a frequent target of social discontent therefore its applications and systems can be a significant target of hackers or other nefarious people We must prepare to recover from a potential disaster and make appropriate plans to restore key systems in the event of an emergency To assist the Wheaton College community with understanding appropriate security behaviors policies must be developed and communicated in partnership with technology governance We must not assume that well intentioned people are knowledgeable enough to understand and take appropriate steps to securely manage institutional data and resources Enterprise Applications Enterprise and Administrative applications at Wheaton College need to subscribe to the following design principles 1 cloud based preferred 2 user centric interfaces 3 Wheaton NetID authentication 4 accessible to all users 5 web based and 6 an architecture that values analytics agility and service focus Departments must review system acquisitions with AIT before purchase in order to evaluate how they would fit within these requirements and the workload pipeline to ensure that value is fully realized in a timely manner Our administrative systems must facilitate the core mission of the College provide appropriately secure access to services and information when they are needed and be as frictionless and adaptable as possible easy to find and use develop and support Identity and Access Management needs to be redesigned and a standards based commercial solution deployed to facilitate secure and user friendly access to systems The College has made a significant investment in the Ellucian Banner Enterprise Resource Planning Systems e g Finance Human Resources Student and Advancement and is under contract to use these systems for another seven years Effort must be made to leverage this investment by better understanding its capabilities and how they can positively impact the College deploying more automation and workflow capabilities documenting the system processes and workflows so that other staff members can be more easily trained and working cross organizationally to take full advantage of available resources Each business area would benefit from having a Functional Analyst assigned to work collaboratively with AIT to identify business process and system improvement opportunities and to successfully launch new functionality AIT technical staff should focus on the technical aspects of the systems while functional analysts focus on the end user experience The
