Charting the Course for Excellence
January 12, 2012
Longwood's second annual assessment conference offered an opportunity to dialogue with peers, ask questions, and share experiences in "Charting the Course for Excellence" through assessment. Presenters from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business and Economics, Education and Human Services, and Graduate and Professional Studies; ITS; Administration & Finance; Student Affairs; and OAIR shared their experience and expertise. This year, special guest speakers included Dr. Terrell Rhodes, Vice President for Association of American Colleges and Universities, and Dr. Joe DeFilippo, SCHEV Director of Academic Affairs and Planning. A panel discussion with Longwood Vice Presidents who have served as SACS Evaluators was the final highlight of the day. President Finnegan announced the establishment of the Longwood Assessment Mini-Grant Program (LAMP). Program information and the application process will be forthcoming.
