SP2.1: Enhanced Center of Learning and Teaching
This project calls upon us to identify the unique set of competencies that define Binghamton University graduates, establish a process to guide and document students' adaptation of these competencies and determine how to measure success. Initial Road Map funding provided separate funding streams to the divisions of student affairs and academic affairs for different components of the project. The separate branches of the project have since been consolidated into a single initiative co-managed by the EVP/provost and VP for Student Affairs.
The goals advanced under this project are:
- Build a dynamic and transformative learning community.
- Prepare students to enter the workforce and successfully navigate their own career choices
The indicators of success for these goals are:
- Increase the percentage of alumni who are working in their field within three years of graduating
The milestones completed since our last progress report are:
- Successfully identified competencies associated with the Binghamton Scholars program. Using those competencies, implemented a module within B-Engaged to track scholars’ progress in developing those competencies. Scholars program has incorporated this in their evaluation process and presented this project to SUNY System Administration.
- Successfully identified competencies associated with the Mental Health Outreach Peer Education Program (MHOPE). Using those competencies, implemented a module within B-Engaged to track MHOPE peer educators’ progress in developing those competencies.
- Outreach to other programs for inclusion into a core competency project – Decker School of Nursing Honors Program, Mental Health Advocates, Residential Life (Resident Assistants), internship programs (UCC and CDCI).
