Additional Market-relevant and Academically Rigorous Degree Programs

Additional planned degrees coming soon include the undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies and three new master’s degrees in Digital Learning Systems, Educational Leadership and Administration, and Nonprofit Administration and Innovation.

Two faculty were past-presidents of national professional organizations: The Adult Higher Education Alliance and the National Education Finance Academy.

One faculty member was recently elected to the board of directors for the International Literacy Association.
