   Coding Criteria and Data Collection Procedure for Mission Statement Analysis

Academic Unit Mission Statements
A broad operational definition was used to both collect and identify mission statements
(MS) among academic colleges, departments, or programs. For coding purposes, a
mission statement on the academic side included any statement or narrative that:
1. was formally labeled as a ―mission statement;‖ or
2. referred to the ―purpose,‖ ―goals,‖ or ―objectives‖ of a particular unit, unless the
statement was overly narrow and…
     pertained only to curricular items, such as the number and content of courses
        required for the degree;
     referred only to the type of student or to whom the program was intended, e.g.,
        ―This program is designed for working professionals who wish to pursue graduate
        work;‖
     listed nothing more than the types of jobs that graduates of the program were
        qualified to obtain; or
3. mentioned broadly or specifically about preparing students to have an impact on society,
where regardless of the form or structure of the statement, the undercurrent was a loftier
goal beyond that of simply attaining a degree that would then facilitate finding a job.

Non-Academic Campus Support Unit Mission Statements
Again, a broad operational definition was used to both collect and identify mission
statements (MS) among the non-academic support divisions and units of the university.
For coding purposes, a mission statement on the non-academic side included any statement
or narrative that:
1. was formally labeled as a ―mission statement;‖ or
2. referred to the ―purpose,‖ ―goals,‖ or ―objectives‖ of a particular unit, but only if such
statement addressed how the unit:
     contributes to the overall operation of the university;
     supports the broad overall university goal of student learning.

Data Collection Procedure
The search process for mission statements included the following locations:
1) all prominent or homepage University website locations;
2) 2008-2009 or 2009-2010 Undergraduate or Graduate Catalogs (academic units only);
3) hard copy submission to the Middle States Document Repository.

Limitation of Analysis
This analysis focuses strictly on the content of mission statements, or descriptive
statements for units or programs that have no mission statement, not on what units or
programs may or may not actually do. Some units or programs may in fact do what is
listed in the coding categories but do not directly state this about themselves.

                                       TOWSON UNIVERSITY
                                       MISSION STATEMENT

I.      Summary Mission Statement

Towson University, as the State‘s Metropolitan University, focuses on providing highly
developed educational experiences and community service through a broad range of intellectual
opportunities to a diverse student body at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The
academic programs and services offered through the university provide a core quality
environment for students to acquire the intellectual and social preparation to achieve their
potential as contributing leaders and citizens of the workforce and a complex global society.
Faculty, students, and staff serve the region through research and professional outreach that
specifically responds to the state‘s socioeconomic and cultural needs and aspirations.

II.    Institutional Identity

Towson University began as The Maryland State Normal School and was founded in Baltimore
City in 1866. In 1915 it moved to its current location in Towson and became the Maryland State
Teachers College at Towson in 1935, offering a Bachelor of Science degree in education. The
institution‘s mission was expanded in 1946 with the introduction of a variety of degree programs
in the arts and sciences, and this programmatic development led to its becoming Towson State
College in 1963. The move to a more diverse academic portfolio including health professions,
business, and technology were interwoven into the transition to Towson State University in 1976
and Towson University in 1997. It is Maryland‘s largest comprehensive university. The quality of
its programs, its educational value, and its focus on student achievement and civic engagement
has brought it national recognition as a premier metropolitan institution. With strong
baccalaureate programs in the arts and sciences, the fine arts and communication, health and
nursing, education, business, information and computer science, and interdisciplinary studies to
serve as the foundation, it similarly provides high quality graduate programs in a variety of areas
of professional practice and applied fields. Through its programs, staff, and faculty, it seeks to
respond to the needs of the region and greater metropolitan area, serve as an engine of change in
the academic and socioeconomics environments of the state, and create a productive future for our
students, our region, and enrich the lives and opportunities for all members of its community.

The University‘s longstanding commitment to creating a multicultural campus is advanced by
policies and practices that assure the recruitment and retention of a diversified student body,
staff, and faculty who accurately reflect local, regional, national, and global diversity. This
commitment is sustained through a focus on community service, democratic principles, and
globalization as it relates to the curriculum, services, activities, and partnerships on and off the
campus. Through its international education program, it enrolls students from as many as 100
nations. Diversity initiatives provide a direction that mirrors the face of the population in the
region and the state, which foster and model a respectful and inclusive environment and serve to
prepare all members of the institution to appreciate differences and to live comfortably within an
increasingly multicultural society.


                                                                                                  19
The undergraduate curriculum promotes the intellectual skills essential for effective
communication, gathering and evaluating information, critical thinking, meaningful use of
technology, appreciating diversity, and making informed choices. These skills are grounded
through the University‘s long-standing commitment to a strong liberal arts core that emphasizes
an understanding of the arts and sciences and how their branches of knowledge gather, evaluate,
and apply information to reach valid conclusions. The liberal arts core, combined with a
commitment to students‘ co-curricular experience, also serves to develop intellectual and social
skills that will guide students as contributing members of the workforce and of a democratic
society.

As a complex comprehensive learning community, the University currently emphasizes the
systematic addition of strong undergraduate and graduate programs that represent emerging
disciplines, address economic and workforce needs, and serve the metropolitan region. To date,
master‘s degree programs in the health professions, applied information technology, education,
homeland security, business, and a variety of interdisciplinary or applied fields have been
developed in response to pressing regional needs and extensive student demands. The four
applied doctoral programs build on the foundation and strengths of the University and are in
areas that are fundamental to the development and vigor of the institution: Audiology,
Occupational Science, Instructional Technology, and Applied Information Technology.

The certification and professional development of educators has been and will remain central to
Towson University's future. It is the largest single provider of certified teachers in Maryland and
plays a leadership role in the continuing professional development of the state‘s educators. The
College of Education‘s strategies for improving the quality of undergraduate teacher preparation
serve as regional and national models, as do its highly regarded Professional Development
School Network and the professional development programs of its different centers and projects.
To meet the critical needs for more and better teachers in Maryland and the nation, the
University has expanded programming in teacher education with plans to add specialized
master‘s and doctoral programs responding to market demands and the Maryland State Plan.

Towson University is committed to a student-centered learning environment that uses a variety
of formats to provide innovative access to information. Towson University‘s faculty and staff
work actively to develop students as citizens and leaders of the community by combining
classroom learning with out-of-class experiences (internships, practica, service-learning, and
related experiential opportunities). Through academic partnerships and collaborative programs,
it advances the statewide goal of attaining a cost effective and accountable system for delivering
high quality post-secondary education. It is an active participant in four regional higher
education centers and has expanded its current certificate and baccalaureate programming
through formal 2+2 partnerships with community colleges in the state. It works closely with
profit and non-profit organizations to provide educational opportunities, including baccalaureate
and post-baccalaureate programs meeting the organizations‘ specific needs. It has created a
technology infrastructure for providing improved access to degree programs for a greater
numbers of Maryland residents. In so doing, Towson strengthens Maryland‘s role as a national
leader in the use of technology to enhance its economy and to improve learning and life-long
access to learning for all of its citizens.



                                                                                                20
Towson's faculty members actively pursue scholarship and creativity that complement
disciplinary knowledge and superior teaching. The University values and rewards equally the
scholarships of discovery, teaching, integration, and application. Faculty members also engage
in a wide range of activities, which support the University's institutional outreach programs to
government, health care organizations, nonprofit groups, education, business, and the fine arts in
its region. Its research and consulting centers, such as the Regional Economic Studies Institute,
the Center for Geographic Information Sciences, the Center for Applied Information
Technology, and the Center for Educational Leadership continue to link faculty expertise with
community needs and interests. Partnerships with corporations engage the University both as
learners and as teachers. The Maryland Arts Festival, the Children's Dance Division, and
numerous faculty and student performances and exhibits throughout the year contribute to the
cultural life of the community. The Wellness Center and the Speech and Hearing Clinic provide
clinical sites for faculty members and students and serve the well being of members of the
community. The Institute for Teaching and Research On Women and The National Center for
Curriculum Transformation Resources On Women provide international as well as national
services for a full variety of disciplines and agencies.

Towson University‘s chief role in responding to Maryland‘s workforce needs rests in its ability
to respond quickly to changing circumstances and emerging needs by revising or introducing
high quality undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and certificate programs. Program development
readily can be targeted to support economic and social development as identified by national,
state, and regional government agencies. Its plans for expanding its graduate programming,
increasing the number of both students and degrees offered, will lead to an increase in the
number of teaching and research opportunities available to the graduate student body and will
allow the institution to export valuable expertise to regional and state agencies and organizations.
This design gives Towson a strong presence in the educational growth of employees from local
school districts, health care fields, the arts, government agencies, and technology and service
industries, including e-Business.

III.   Institutional Capabilities

By Carnegie Classification, Towson University is a Masters (Comprehensive)
University I. It has achieved national prominence as a premier metropolitan comprehensive
university by offering a wide-range of excellent graduate and undergraduate degree programs
and by increasing its regional and national reputation through its focus on student learning,
innovative programs and pedagogies, faculty creativity and scholarship, applied and sponsored
research, community service, and cultural outreach to business, education, and health care
organizations and professions. Its commitments to the active facilitation of learning through a
variety of modes as its faculty members‘ primary role, and to developing and retaining a diverse
student population will sustain its record for high retention and overall six-year graduation rates.

The University has a strong commitment to study in the liberal arts, both as it serves as a general
intellectual resource for more specialized disciplinary work and as it enriches students‘ cultural
and social awareness. A highly regarded general education program provides undergraduates
with multiple ways of knowing and specific skills that equip them to reason in and respond to a
wide range of work and life settings. Active initiatives to recruit African-Americans, other
American minorities, women, and a range of international faculty, staff, and students advance its

                                                                                                  21
commitment to diversity and support strong multicultural and international studies programming.
It further augments and enriches students‘ academic programs through an expanding Honors
College experience, extensive practice of faculty-student and student-student mentoring, a model
first year experience program, undergraduate research projects, internships, practica, career
services, clinical placements, departmental honors, colloquia, forums, and performance and
lecture series.

Faculty members value excellent teaching and give it high priority. Their active engagement in
scholarship and service generates sustained originality and outstanding performance throughout
their academic careers. Their frequent participation in more than one academic unit or
department sustains the unusually high number of innovative multi-disciplinary programs offered
by the University. Their large number of refereed publications and presentations are noted for
their quality and innovation, and the richness and diversity of their research and interests provide
a wide array of learning and research opportunities for students, who often engage in
collaborative research and creative projects with their instructors.

The University capitalizes on it urban/suburban location by providing varied and distinctive
opportunities for students and faculty learning, teaching, and research. It recognizes its
obligation to serve at the local, regional, and state levels through its academic programs and
professional services. It uses its metropolitan context as the environment for basic and applied
research, as a teaching laboratory for the curriculum, and to strengthen its program and course
offerings from the baccalaureate to the doctoral level. These strengths also support the ability to
draw on national and international candidacy pools for faculty and administrative positions. As
part of its pursuit to meet societal needs in a more comprehensive manner, Towson University
will move eventually to the Carnegie Classification to the Doctoral/Research Universities –
Intensive level. This means the University will maintain a wide range of baccalaureate programs
along with further development of graduate education through the doctorate, and it will focus
more copiously on applied research.

The University, while designated as a growth institution, maintains its commitment to student-
centered, small class engagement. This value is reflected in the Master Plan that calls for
substantial modification to and growth of the academic precinct over the next ten years. The
plan includes a focus on designing new academic and academic support spaces that emphasize
the values of interactive learning, informal teaching and learning communication, and individual
student attention.

                   Graduate Course Syllabus Assessment Review (Spring 2009)
Oral Critique of Literature: Discussion or oral presentation based critique of published literature.
Written Critique of Literature: Written critique of published literature.
Application of Theory: Application of theory from class to a real-world project/situation. Examples: development
of computer programs, web pages, assessment tools, lesson plans, treatment plans and the analysis of data sets.
Reflective Processes: Assignments that require students to make connections between aspects of the course and/or
their personal application of the material that were not explicit in the class.
Observation and Correlation to Theory: Activities in which the student observes real-world situations related to
their area of study and correlating what is observed to the theory taught in the class. Example: a student teacher
observing a real-world classroom and correlating the behavior of the students and the teacher to educational theory.
Synthesis: The synthesis of multiple and varied sources of information - usually in the form of a term paper.
Research: Non-literature-based research.
Proposal: The development of a research/thesis proposal.
No Activities: The syllabus did not include adequate detail concerning assignments/activities to determine if the
class fostered independent thought.

                        Methodology: Alignment of Learning Outcomes
To analyze learning outcomes across the university, colleges, programs, and courses, the following
data were used:
                                         Document 6.2
      Towson University statements in the mission statement and undergraduate catalog (N=3)
      College statements on main web pages for CBE, COE, CLA, and Honors College (N=4)
      All available chair's surveys (as of May 31, 2009; N=46)
      Undergraduate major/graduate program statements (N = 29), selected from the list of
       programs that clearly communicated learning outcomes on program websites (as
       determined in the analysis for Charge Question 6B-2), with an attempt to capture both
       undergraduate and graduate programs, with 3-6 programs selected per College (number per
       College determined by availability)
      Selected syllabi (N=34) in the Middle States repository that had stated learning outcomes
       (as determined in the analysis for Charge Question 6B-2); syllabi were selected on a
       random basis with an attempt to capture both undergraduate and graduate course syllabi,
       with 5-7 syllabi selected per the six faculty populated Colleges (CBE; COE; COFAC; CHP,
       CLA, and FCSM).

In total 116 documents were analyzed for evidence of the degree of development of their stated
learning outcomes and evidence of the development, revision, and assessment of program and
course level learning outcomes. Coding schemes are explained in the Working Group 6B template
for Charge Question 1.

                     Methodology: Learning Outcomes in Course Syllabi


To analyze course syllabi for evidence of learning outcomes, 306 syllabi were sampled from the
set submitted to the Middle States steering committee in Spring 2009. Departments and programs
were asked to submit syllabi from one lower-level course, one upper-level course, one
capstone/independent project type course, and one graduate course (if appropriate). In the case of
the many departments that sent more than the requested syllabi, several courses were selected at
each level from the submitted set, but not all syllabi were examined. Syllabi were coded for the
presence or absence of learning outcomes (any statement in the form of "at the end of this course,
students will be able to…" even if labeled something else, such as "learning objectives" or "course
outcomes") and the presence or absence of course objectives.

                          General Education Curriculum Standards

Curricular Standards for General Education Courses at Towson University (Effective with the
1996-97 Undergraduate Catalog)

General Policies for Course Certification

   A. The subcategory requirements in Advanced Composition (ID.), Science, Technology, and
      Modem Society (II.A.2), and Cultural Plurality and Diversity (H.C.3) are Towson's
      unique general education requirements, which in most cases all transfer students will
      complete in residence at Towson. The Advanced Composition and Science, Technology,
      and Modem Society courses will be upper-level offerings. The complexities of the
      MHEC policy and transfer agreements predicate that almost all other courses certified as
      general education courses will be designed as lower-level courses. Exceptions will be
      justified as circumstances warrant, such as advanced placement (e.g., a freshman placed
      in Span.301) or program accreditation requirements.

   B. Courses certified as general education offerings must be placed in a single subcategory.
      One course, although it may be an advanced writing course focused on the history of
      music or a course that compares American and European experience, can fill only one
      requirement and may not be listed in two or more subcategories.

   C. However courses are constructed in order to be certified as meeting general education
      requirements at TU, they must also conform to the area definitions spelled out in the
      MHEC policy:

       1.     ARTS AND HUMANITIES

       "The arts examine aesthetics and the development of the aesthetic form. Courses in this
       area may include, but are not limited to fine, performing and studio art, appreciation of
       the arts, and history of the arts. All courses, including fine, performing and studio arts,
       should explore the relationship between theory and practice. The humanities examine the
       values and cultural heritage that establish the framework for inquiry into the meaning of
       life. Courses in the humanities may include but are not limited to, the language, history,
       literature, and philosophy of Western and other culture."

       2.     SOCIAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES

       "The social and behavioral sciences examine the psychology of individuals and the ways
       in which individuals, groups, or segments of society behave, function, and influence one
       another. They include, but are not limited to, subjects which focus on history and cultural
       diversity; on the concepts of groups, work, and political systems; on the applications of

                                                                                               141
       qualitative and quantitative data to social issues; and on the interdependence of
       individuals, society, and the physical environment."

       3.      MATHEMATICS

       "Mathematic courses provide students with numerical, analytical, statistical and problem-
       solving skills."

       4.      BIOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES

       "The biological and physical sciences examine living systems and the physical universe.
       They introduce students to the variety of methods used to collect, interpret, and apply
       scientific data, and to an understanding of the relationship between scientific theory and
       application."

       5. INTERDISCIPLINARY AND EMERGING ISSUES (OPTIONAL)

       "In addition to the five categories listed above, a General Education Program may include
       either content or courses in a sixth category that addresses emerging issues which many
       colleges have identified as essential to a full program of general education for their
       students. Institutions may include courses which provide an interdisciplinary examination
       of issues across categories, or may include content or courses which address other
       categories of knowledge, skills and values which lie outside of the five traditional areas
       listed above."

   D. In general, all courses certified as general education offerings will fall within five areas
      of study:
      1) composition, and the traditional disciplines of
      2) mathematics,
      3) biological and physical sciences,
      4) arts and humanities, and
      5) social and behavioral sciences.
      Therefore, the two allowable non-traditional requirements (defined in 3.e above) at TU
      will fall within the "Using Information Effectively" category and category II.B.3,
      "Contemporary Issues".

Interdisciplinary study can be certified under several subcategories, but it will be limited to study
among the disciplines represented in the five MHEC groupings.

NMEC guidelines specify that "instructional technology," "health/wellness/fitness" and "speech
communications" fall within the "Interdisciplinary and Emerging Issues" grouping; therefore,
courses certified at TU in these fields must be placed in the category II.B.3 "Contemporary
Issues" subcategory.



                                                                                                 142
Group I: Skills for Liberal Learning
NMEC policy stipulates that skills and applications courses must "include theoretical
components if they are to be certified as meeting general education requirements." As a general
principle, the Committee recommends that courses meant to develop skills also must be tied to
exploring specific contents.

       1. English 102, Writing for a Liberal Education/English 190,
       Honors College Writing.
       The freshman writing course (ENGL 102 or ENGL 190) will focus on exploring ways of
       writing and thinking in the branches of knowledge and on developing rhetorical strategies
       for successful college-level expository writing. Entering students who do not have basic
       skills in composition needed for college-level writing will be required to gain those skills
       through course work or other means before being admitted to ENGL 102.

       2. Using Information Effectively
       Courses in this category provide students with basic skills in gathering and using
       information effectively. At a minimum each must focus on teaching students 1) how to
       gather information from print, human, and electronic sources; 2) how to process
       information; 3) how to critically evaluate it; 4) how to use it effectively in writing and
       speaking; and 5) how information is gathered, evaluated, and applied in different
       branches of knowledge.

       The Committee recommends that the course be structured to meet standards set forward
       in "Information Problem Solving Skills," American Association of School Libraries,"
       1994. To do so:
           a. The course must be anchored to a specific subject matter or field in which the
               instructor is expert and the students hold interest;
           b. Different sections of the course should treat different subjects, allowing students
               planning majors in Science, the Arts, Business, etc., to gain basic research
               experience related to their major fields of interest. Some sections may be
               Modeled, for that matter, to demonstrate research strategies for a branch of
               knowledge, such as "Research Techniques for the Fine Arts;"
           c. The course should explore collaborative ways of learning,
           d. The course should emphasize critical thinking in speaking and writing and
               explore interdisciplinary connections for the specific subject about which the
               information is gathered;
           e. The course should explore the ethical dimensions of gathering and applying
               source materials.
       Model syllabi and guidelines for this category are available from the GenEd
       Subcommittee.

       3. Mathematical Sciences
       MHEC policy stipulates that courses meeting this requirement must require skills at the
       level of college algebra or above. To be certified, courses must treat concepts and skills
                                                                                                143
      in the mathematical sciences and emphasize both theoretical foundations and problem-
      solving applications. The courses need not require dedicated laboratories with computing
      resources, but must make such resources available to students and give classroom
      demonstration in the use of such resources. Assignments will include both hand
      calculations and use of computer resources.

      Approved interpretation of NMEC policy stipulates that "finite mathematics, statistics,
      discrete mathematics, and mathematical survey courses can make excellent general
      education courses." Courses under a variety of disciplines fall within this stipulation and
      may cover such fields as number theory, chance, statistical analysis, patterns and
      symmetry, computer graphics, geometry as applicable in a variety of disciplines,
      simulations, artificial intelligence, and others.

      Therefore, in principle, courses offered by departments outside CSM may be certified as
      meeting the requirement if the courses employ advanced skills in mathematical sciences
      at the level of college algebra and beyond and include the use of technology in
      mathematical applications.

      4. Advanced, discipline-centered writing
      Courses in this category must address I ) the discourse models and practices important to
      a specific discipline and 2) techniques of formatting, reporting, validation, and
      documentation required to write with authority and authenticity within the discipline.
      Detailed guidelines are available from the GenEd Subcommittee.

      5. Creativity and Creative Development
      Courses approved as meeting this requirement must involve students in a specific creative
      activity, emphasizing symbolic, affective, and imaginative thinking in the creative
      activity and understanding the creative process through participating in it. They also must
      reflect current scholarship in the field, provide reference to theoretical frameworks and
      methods, and explore the critical standards central to the genre or medium.

Group II: Contexts for Liberal Learning
A. The Natural Sciences
   1. Biological and Physical Sciences. The CSM Council has provided the following
      standards for courses meeting this requirement:

      "Courses should have as their primary thrust illustration of the quantitative and predictive
      nature of the natural sciences, and must use mathematics and computers at the level
      appropriate. In addition, all courses in this category will include as an integral part
      treatment of the historical development and the structural nature of the subject(s).
      Students must take two courses in the Biological and/or Physical Sciences, with at least
      one course including significant components of both lecture and laboratory. Further, the
      two courses chosen must -be from two different scientific disciplines, or be two
      sequenced courses within one discipline."
                                                                                               144
    2. Science, Technology, and Modem Society. The CSM Council has provided the
       following standards for courses meeting this requirement:
       "Courses may be either discipline-specific or interdisciplinary and will develop one or
       more issues or topics of current importance to society to place them in broad scientific,
       technological, and societal contexts. They will help students develop a sense of social
       responsibility and ethics as they pertain to science, and will emphasize the approach to
       the problem, not the specific solution. In searching for and proposing possible solutions,
       students will be engaged in considering, analyzing, and evaluating the advantages and
       disadvantages of scientific and technological decisions that have been considered by
       society. These courses may provide a capstone experience within a major.

       Courses in the interdisciplinary mode may be team-taught by two or more faculty
       members coming from different disciplines throughout the university (e.g. Anthropology,
       Economics, Environmental Planning, Geography, Health Sciences, History, Philosophy,
       Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, etc.), as well as from CSM. Because the
       courses would be in specific areas of faculty interest and expertise, the specific subject
       matter of a specific course might vary from semester to semester."

B. American Experience
    1. Arts and Humanities
       This subcategory should include courses from all arts and humanities disciplines as they
       explore American culture and traditions or provide methods for such study. Courses must
       in an overt way engage students in some critical assessment of how their own experience
       is affected by American traditions in the arts and humanities or how the methodologies of
       these branches of knowledge help them better understand American culture.

    2. Social and Behavioral Studies
       This subcategory should include courses from all the social and behavioral sciences as
       they explore American culture and traditions or provide methods for such study. Courses
       must in an overt way engage students in some critical assessment of a) how social and
       behavioral studies of American experience extend their understanding of themselves and
       others or b) how the methodologies of the social and behavioral sciences help them better
       understand American culture, behavior, or social and political institutions.

    3. Contemporary Studies
       Courses approved for this group might focus on a specific issue (POSC: The
       Conservative Agenda), a more generic issue (PHIL: Post-Modem Thought), or a
       clustering of issues (COSC: Information Resource Management). The specific standard is
       that the courses should employ some disciplinary, cross-disciplinary, or interdisciplinary
       ways of knowing to engage students in critical analysis of significant issues in
       contemporary American experience. In addition, the courses should give overt attention
       to how the knowledge or methodology they advance aids students in understanding the
       dynamics of American society.


                                                                                               145
C. Western Heritage
   1. Arts and Humanities
      This subcategory includes courses from all disciplines in the arts and humanities that
      explore the Western Heritage or provide methods for studying its cultures and traditions.
      Courses approved for this category may be comparative (European/American,
      European/Non-Western) or of an exclusive Western focus (Women in Western Societies,
      Renaissance Art). The courses must in some overt way engage students in understanding
      how their contemporary experience is marked, positively or negatively, by the Western
      Heritage.

       Any course that introduces a student to a Western language (other than English) would
       automatically qualify as meeting this requirement.

    2. Social and Behavioral Studies
       This subcategory includes courses from all the social and behavioral sciences as they
       explore the Western Heritage or provide methods for studying its cultures and traditions.
       Courses may compare Western and Non-Western traditions and institutions, or they may
       focus exclusively on Western experience. Courses must in an overt way engage students
       in some critical assessment of how social and behavioral studies of the Western Heritage
       and of the methodologies of these branches of knowledge help them better understand
       Western culture, behavior, or social and political institutions.

    3. Plurality and Diversity
       Courses approved for this subcategory must explore race, class, gender, religious or
       ethnic traditions, or a minority issue. Interdisciplinary or cross-disciplinary studies are
       encouraged. Courses that specifically focus on contemporary or historical issues in
       America must include significant exploration of how Western prejudgments, system, or
       traditions contribute to those issues. All courses in the group should engage students in
       some critical assessment of problems and potential in human diversity and a pluralistic
       society.

       Any courses that advance a student's understanding of a Western language or culture
       should qualify meeting this requirement.

D. Global Connections
    1. Non-Western Cultures, Languages, and Traditions
       Any course in a non-Western language would automatically qualify as meeting this
       requirement. Other courses must specifically or comparatively (among non-Western
       civilizations or between non- Western/Western civilizations) focus on content that helps
       students understand that there are multiple modes of human expression and experience.

                            Academic Program Review Guideline

Goal

The major goal of a program review is to continue to improve the program by answering the
following questions:
 What are we trying to do?
 How well are we doing it?
 What is our (realistic) vision of a truly outstanding program?
 What do we need to do to achieve that vision?

The program review is also an opportunity to bring the program‘s accomplishments to the
attention of senior Towson administrators, System administrators, and the Board of Regents.

Audience

The primary audience of a program review is the program‘s Dean, the Provost, System
administrators, and the Board of Regents.

Program Review Schedule

Towson‘s program review schedule is maintained by the Assessment Office. Program reviews
are normally undertaken once every seven years. Towson may request changes in the schedule
with appropriate justification. Programs undergoing specialized accreditation review should
schedule their program reviews for the same or subsequent year. Relevant sections from
accreditation materials may be copied and pasted into the program review report.

Program Review Completion Calendar

See the Checklist for Completing and Submitting an Academic Program Review for a
chronological description of the steps to completing a program review (attached at the end of this
document). To ensure that the vision developed during the program review process is feasible,
faculty are strongly encouraged to keep their dean informed of their work and thinking
throughout the program review process.

External Reviews

The University System of Maryland now stipulates that program reviews include an external
review. Specialized accreditation reviewers may serve in this capacity. External reviewers for
those programs without specialized accreditation are selected using the following process:



                                                                                              193
   Program faculty identify three potential reviewers. The reviewers should be from an
    institution within driving distance and similar in character to Towson, so they understand the
    program‘s environment.
   The credentials of the three reviewers are submitted to the college dean, who makes the final
    selection.
   The reviewer may read the program review and supporting documents and/or visit Towson and
    interview students, faculty, and administrators.
   The reviewer prepares a written report that explicitly identifies program strengths and suggests
    improvements.
   The Provost‘s Office will reimburse the program for the reviewer‘s travel expenses and a
    modest honorarium.

Contents

The program review has four elements:

1. The program review report, not to exceed 20 pages (see separate report outline)
2. The external reviewer‘s report that explicitly identifies program strengths and suggests
   improvements.
3. A two-page summary report to be submitted to the Board of Regents, following the Board‘s
   format (see separate form)
4. A signature page (see separate form), signed by the program coordinator, director, or chair;
   the college dean; and the provost, signaling concurrence with the conclusions and
   recommendations of the program review report and summary

Program Reviews and Annual Assessment Reports

Programs submitting a program review need not submit an annual assessment report in the same
calendar year.

                            Academic Program Review Report Outline


[With the concurrence of your dean, you can omit any items-except those required by the Board
of Regents- that do not apply to your program]

Goals

   List the major learning outcomes for students in the program.
   List the goals established as a result of the last program review and indicate whether or not
    they have been achieved. If they have not been achieved, briefly explain why.

Quality

Describe and analyze
 Evidence that students are achieving each major learning outcome.
 The curriculum‘s effectiveness in helping students achieves the major learning outcomes.
 The effectiveness of faculty teaching methods and out-of-class interactions and support in
  helping students achieve the major learning outcomes.
 The technological skills that students develop in the program.
 The program‘s effectiveness in meeting the needs of a diverse student population and
  preparing students to function in a diverse society.
 How students benefit from faculty scholarly activities. For example, to what extent are
  students actively involved in faculty scholarship? How has faculty scholarship helped
  improve the curriculum and/or teaching methods?
 Other programs—both at Towson and elsewhere—with which the program competes for
  students. How does this program compare with peer or competing programs and/or with
  professional standards? What makes this program distinctive?

Demand

Describe and analyze
 Past and anticipated enrollment trends in the program. [Board of Regents requires this]
 Regional and/or national trends in this discipline and their impact on this program.
 The curriculum‘s effectiveness in addressing the needs of graduates and their employers.

Cost-Effectiveness

Analyze the cost-effectiveness of the program. Depending on their relevance and availability,
you may wish to consider such factors as class size, budget, credit enrollments, student/faculty
ratio, cost per credit hour, and space utilization.

                                                                                                    195
