As colleges and universities all over the nation consider how they might create a more comprehensive student record, a group of institutions is embracing the idea in earnest, aided by a $1.5 million project supported by Lumina Foundation.
The schools, with help from NASPA and AACRAO (the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers), will seek to collect, document and share student outcomes and competencies that reflect learning that is gained, not just from academic courses, but also from a broad range of student experiences, including co-curricular activities.
The participating institutions are:
- Brandman University (Irvine, Calif.)
- Elon University (Elon, N.C.)
- IUPUI (Indianapolis, Ind.)
- Quinsigamond Community College (Worcester, Mass.)
- Stanford University (Palo Alto, Calif.)
- University of Central Oklahoma (Edmond, Okla.)
- University of Houston-Downtown (Houston, Texas).
- University of Maryland University College (Upper Marlboro, Md.)
- University of South Carolina (Columbia, S.C.)
- University of Wisconsin Colleges and University of Wisconsin–Extension (Madison, Wis.)
Note: Two additional institutions will be named by year’s end to round out the group of 12.
