Title III Strengthening Institutions
Grant – US Department of Education awarded to Kentucky Wesleyan in November 2014.
Goal: Improve retention of first-year students from 54% to 75%; improve our six-year graduation rate from 50% to 60%; and thereby increase full-time enrollment from 625 to 1,000 by September 30, 2018.
Strategy 1: Provide faculty, staff, and students with the information they need to make data-driven decisions.
Strategy 1 focuses on replacing the current Student Information System with a more robust Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. The College has selected CAMS software which will permit us to streamline activities within and across offices and departments. Faculty, staff and students will have more and current data at their fingertips.
Strategy 2: Increase active-learning experiences throughout the KWC curriculum and co-curricular activities.
Strategy 2 focuses on the Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL). CETL provides leadership for the Title III project and support for its high-impact activities, including active-learning pedagogies, service learning, international experiences, and internships and other field experiences. CETL will provide training, ongoing support, and constant encouragement for our faculty and staff, helping them develop pedagogies and co-curricular programs that engage students.
