EKU Receives 2014 CHEA Award for Student Learning Outcomes
Eastern is one of only three institutions nationally to receive the 2014 Award for Outstanding Institutional Practice in Student Learning Outcomes, awarded by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and announced on Jan. 14.
The 2014 CHEA Award recognizes EKU’s student learning outcomes activities, including measurement and communication, as evidenced by an annual Assurance of Learning Day, where faculty share information and ideas about program strengths and weaknesses, learning outcomes and changes that might enhance learning.
The award reflects the vision and hard work of the entire campus community.
Established in 2005, the CHEA Award recognizes institutions that have been exceptional in developing and applying evidence of student learning outcomes to improve quality and accountability. Entries were judged on the basis of:
- articulation and evidence of outcomes,
- success with regard to outcomes,
- information to the public about outcomes, and
- use of outcomes for educational improvement.
Other 2014 CHEA award recipients were Excelsior College and The Citadel. Representatives from EKU will receive the award at a ceremony to be held during the 2014 CHEA Annual Conference Jan. 27-29 in Washington, D.C.
