Nesheim requests student input on co-curricular outcomes
David Nesheim, interim Director of Assessment, distributed Co-Curricular Surveys to those present at the CAB meeting, Tuesday. The Co-Curricular Surveys pertain to how well constructed the Co-curricular Outcomes are for Chadron State College.
“Outcomes are supposed to help us as an institution all do the same things that we value-the same things that we think are important,” Nesheim said. “We have to have co-curriculars cover just about every damn thing we do on campus that takes place outside of the classroom.”
The Higher Learning Commision (HLC) is a nonprofit organization that sets standards for CSC to meet in order to be accredited by the Department of Education. Accreditation is important because it is used to determine if an institution is working up to standards, is eligible for federal student assistance and a variety of other reasons.
The HLC now requires that outcomes for co-curriculars are established. HLC Staff are in the process of developing a final version that encompasses criteria for Co-Curricular Outcomes.
“HLC’s goal is to have final revisions approved by the Board in February 2019 and go into effect in fall 2019 or fall 2020, depending on the extent of the changes” states hlcommission.org.
Club representatives were asked to pass on the survey and pertaining information to others. The Co-Curricular Surveys are for students, faculty and administration to complete. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9CHXX32
