Keynote | Designing for Student Success

The Role of the Built Environment

In this session, we will explore how campus leaders can align the messaging of the campus built environment with institutional values and break down barriers to help students feel a sense of belonging, engagement, and community on campus.
Abstract: To address the needs of a changing student population, institutions must pay more attention to the tacit messages their built environments convey. Campus design, building design, and interior design are under-appreciated contributors to students' sense of belonging and can help support student success. In this session, we will explore how campus leaders can align the messaging of the campus built environment with institutional values and break down barriers to help students feel a sense of belonging, engagement, and community on campus.

Mission-Aligned Online Academic Programs at US Jesuit Institutions

Identify and Implement Practices That Mature the Development of Courses

A custom survey measured the process maturity involved in planning, implementing, and evaluating online offerings that reflected the principles of Ignatian Pedagogy.

From Volume 49 Number 4 | July–September 2021

Abstract: The purpose of the research was to observe process maturity associated with the design and development of mission-aligned online academic programs at Jesuit institutions in the United States. Twenty of the twenty-seven American Jesuit institutions were represented, including respondents who were most responsible for implementing the process used to design and develop online courses and programs. A custom survey was created to measure the process maturity involved in planning, implementing, and evaluating the design and development. The research design focused on narrative analysis of each institutional mission, which identified themes and keywords that were included in the custom survey.
