Strengthen student-centered culture

YellowYield (1)

January 2017

This objective is yellow. Of the four most important initiatives associated with it, two are yellow, and two are green.

a. Post-Graduation Vocation Success Initiative – Though this initiative was never well defined in the first iteration of the plan, the hiring of a 1/4 time person in the Center for Student Success to provide career development support makes this initiative yellow.

b.  Campus Internationalization Initiative I – This initiative involves developing plans to recruit international students—it is currently yellow.

c.  Campus Internationalization Initiative II – A corollary to the above this initiative focuses on creating opportunities for Malone students and faculty to travel and learn away from campus. This initiative is green.  A campus internationalization audit is currently underway.

d. HLC Persistence and Completion Academy initiative is green.  We continue to make good progress on our commitment to HLC.

July 2016

This objective is yellow. Of the four most important initiatives associated with it, two are yellow, one is green, and one is red.

a. Post-Graduation Vocation Success Initiative – This initiative was never well defined in the first iteration of the plan and so lacks specificity and funding.  It is red.

b.  Campus Internationalization Initiative I – This initiative involves developing plans to recruit international students—it is currently yellow.

c.  Campus Internationalization Initiative II – A corollary to the above this initiative focuses on creating opportunities for Malone students and faculty to travel and learn away from campus.  It is also yellow.  To move to green for both initiative will require the initiation of a campus self assessment of Malone’s current internationalization levels.  While preliminary conversations have occurred with campus stakeholders, a task force has yet to be charged.

d. HLC Persistence and Completion Academy initiative is green.  We continue to make good progress on our commitment to HLC.
