GEAR UP KY Summer Academy@UK 2015 Final Showcase

GEAR UP KY Summer Academy@UK 2015 will conclude its three-week residential experience with a Final Showcase this Friday, featuring an address by President Capilouto, representatives from KY Council for Postsecondary Education (CPE), and selected high school student presentations. The event begins with a reception at 5 pm on Friday, July 24, held outside Woodland Glen II – the residence hall where the 65 high schoolers and their resident advisors have been living this summer. Dinner for the high school students and their parents will be provided courtesy of Enrollment Management in the tent on Woodland Avenue from 6-8 p.m.

GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy@UK 2015This Showcase marks the conclusion of GEAR UP KY Summer Academy@UK 2015, a partnership between UK and CPE. GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a federal program designed to promote college readiness. For the last two years UK has received approximately $150,000 in matching funds from GEAR UP KY to provide an educational experience for high school students from selected, under-performing Kentucky schools. Our goal is to strengthen the students academically, encouraging them to understand that a college education is within their reach. We hope that many of these students will consider UK in particular and for this reason we have purposefully designed the UK GEAR UP curriculum to introduce key learning objectives of UK Core, our nationally recognized general education program.

Though organized through the Division of Undergraduate Education, this program would not be possible without the hard work of people from several colleges and central units. A list of contributors is provided below; please consider attending the reception and the Showcase to help President Capilouto celebrate accomplishments of the students and recognize the significant contributions of faculty and staff in your area.

What’s going on in Undergraduate Education – Undergraduate Council & UK Core

Two important University-wide faculty governance responsibilities reside in the Division of Undergraduate Education and are overseen by the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education:

UK Core Program & the UKCEC

The UK Core Program is finishing up the fourth academic year of implementation, and broad faculty involvement across all colleges serving undergraduates has been critical to its success. UK’s general education program is overseen by the UK Core Education Committee (UKCEC) that assures that course offerings address all four student learning outcomes. All courses each semester require students to upload an assignment for assessment purposes via their course in the MyUK portal.

Chris Thuringer

Dr. Chris Thuringer, Assistant Provost for Program Assessment and Planning

The Division of Undergraduate Education and UKCEC oversee the program evaluation process which by this point has included all of the ten content areas. Dr. Chris Thuringer, Assistant Provost for Program Assessment and Planning in the Division of Undergraduate Education, serves as the coordinator of these processes. See more information on the UK Core website: http://www.uky.edu/ukcore/Evaluation_Data.

Undergraduate Council

The Undergraduate Council is a standing committee of the University Senate. This year, under the leadership of UGE Assistant Provost Karen Badger, the Undergraduate Council has been working with UKCEC, Graduate Council and Senate Council to reduce the amount of time it takes for a proposal to move through the review/approval process.

The UGC has found that the most common issues that faculty encounter with problem proposals are that they are missing required items that can be found in the UK Syllabus Template, and that students learning outcomes may be missing or written in ways that show they are not measurable. A consultation with CELT staff will help strengthen a course or program proposal – visit their website: www.uky.edu/CELT.

What’s going on in Undergraduate Education – Retention & Student Success

Bethany Miller

Dr. Bethany Miller, Director of Retention and Student Success

The Office of Retention and Student Success has continued to show a great impact on the University-wide efforts for improving retention and graduation rates. This unit in the Division of Undergraduate Education is led by Dr. Bethany Miller.

The recent increases in student success at UK reflect the collaborative, campus-wide approach Dr. Miller has undertaken to monitor early alerts, midterm grades, financial balances, pre-registrations and more. Outreach efforts to individual students combine with strategic efforts targeting those students who are showing they are at-risk of dropping out but also have strong indicators for success at UK (the “700” initiative).

Workgroups affiliated with Retention & Student SuccessThese efforts are led by the Office of Retention and Student Success in partnership with many central units who are represented in the Campus Retention Advisory Committee (CRAC) – now known as the Committee on Student Success. This committee meets regularly to advise University leadership in the design, implementation and assessment of UK’s student success initiatives.

There are several other, smaller teams working on strategic efforts to improve student retention and graduation rates.

  • Student Success Intervention Team
  • College Retention Committees
  • HANA/Tableau Community of Practice
  • Financial Wellness Advisory Board
  • Research Consortium on Student Success

These groups also communicate regularly with Dr. Miller. These communications support the campus-wide Retention Updates produced weekly by the Retention & Student Success office.

For more information, see the Student Success website on “Rethinking Retention.”

What’s going on in Undergraduate Education – Transformative Learning

Deanna Sellnow

Dr. Deanna Sellnow, Assistant Provost for Transformative Learning

As part of the reorganization of the Division of Undergraduate Education, Transformative Learning has emerged under the leadership of Dr. Deanna Sellnow, Assistant Provost. Transformative Learning enhances through intentional collaborations with UK’s undergraduate colleges, student support units and community members the best in existing units and has developed new initiatives as well. They serve both faculty (professional development and consultations) and students (individual and group tutoring, workshops) — including Academic Enhancement (better known as The Study), Presentation U!, and the Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) program.

Tranformative Learning = The Study, PresentationU, CNP

Academic Enhancement (AE)

Students don’t need an appointment to attend peer tutoring sessions at The Study – all UK academic advisors know of and rely on the services AE offers to support student success, including placement testing and two of the courses in the UK Academic Preparation Program (college reading for English speakers and math developmental education). Another proven success for UK students is the Study Smarter Seminar. This seminar includes tips to improve: note taking, critical reading, goal setting, self-testing strategies, test-taking anxiety and time management — as well as how to incorporate technology into studying to make life easier.

Presentation U!
(UK’s Quality Enhancement Plan under the SACS-COC accreditation review)

A state-of-the-art multimodal communication center, Presentation U! is the centerpiece of UK’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for SACS-COC accreditation. Faculty Fellows work with the Presentation U! staff in workshops, small groups and one-on-one sessions to develop instructional modules, assignments, grading rubrics and other assessment methods for their courses, public presentations or digital publications. Graduate students can serve as GAs to mentor undergraduate peer tutors or to present faculty development workshops on campus. Undergraduates drop-in or schedule a free peer tutoring session at Presentation U! in the basement of the W.T. Young Library. Peer tutors assist with all multimodal communication projects including written (papers & outlines), oral (speeches & presentations), and visual (powerpoint, prezis, e-portfolios, etc.) assignments. Students can attend Power Hours, offered at both W.T. Young or at Champions Court on North Campus for their convenience.

Social Enterprise & Innovation/Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) certificate program

This co-curricular professional certificate program is for students interested in nonprofit work or eager to develop the leadership skills sought after by all employers. Dr. Todd J. Stoltzfus runs the certificate programming: the University of Kentucky is an approved academic provider for the CNP which is credentialed by the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. The program complements majors and minors and equips students with professional skills, networking, and internship experiences to succeed as leaders upon graduation.

What’s going on in Undergraduate Education – Academy for Undergraduate Excellence

Phil Kraemer

Dr. Phil Kraemer, Chellgren Center Director and Academy Coordinator

The Academy for Undergraduate Excellence was established last year to craft meaningful collaborations among UK’s premier academic enrichment programs for the benefit of all undergraduates. Dr. Philipp Kraemer coordinates the Academy which combines and works across several Undergraduate Education units in an intentional way:

Through the Academy deeply committed students can extend and enrich learning within academic majors, minors, living learning programs, and the UK Core. For example, sophomores mentored by Chellgren professors (see the list at http://www.uky.edu/academy/chellgren_people) in a scholarly project are eminently poised to succeed in applying for a Gaines Fellowship for their junior year and complete a major independent study project in their senior year.

The Student Outreach Team includes the Chellgren Student Fellows Program, First Generation Initiatives, Nationally Competitive Awards and SPUR from Undergraduate Research, representing the Academy at both on-campus and off-campus events.

The Honors Residential College offers many resources to its students but primarily emphasizes peer-to-peer interactions strengthened by a series of co-curricular activities conducive to learning and discovery. Many of the faculty and staff from across campus who teach, mentor or offer support for extracurricular activities in the Honors Program also serve as Gaines Seminar faculty, Chellgren Professors or as sponsors for Undergraduate Research students.

This year all the units in the Academy supported the Undergraduate Research Showcase in Spring 2015. Emphasizing the interconnections among the constituent programs, the Academy affords all students individualized paths to academic excellence.

What’s going on in Undergraduate Education – Career & Exploratory Advising

Karen Badger

Dr. Karen Badger, Associate Dean for Career & Exploratory Advising and Assistant Provost for Undergraduate Education

Starting on December 1, 2014, Dr. Karen Badger became the Associate Dean for Career and Exploratory Advising and Assistant Provost for Undergraduate Education (UGE). As Associate Dean (for the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Ben Withers), she is responsible for leadership in both Undergraduate Studies and the Stuckert Career Center.

By combining these two units, after going through exhaustive external reviews in 2007 and again in 2012-13, UGE is bringing together two sets of professional staff from different backgrounds to work collaboratively on both advising and career counseling strategies. Combining them under an Associate Dean with senior faculty rank will focus and deepen those programs that facilitate students who making their transition to college. As the students explore academic and career options, they will be more efficiently served as the two units begin understanding more clearly how each other’s professional standards support and diversify opportunities for student learning in these critical areas.

Key Programming in Undergraduate Studies and the Stuckert Career Center that Cross between Career Counseling and Academic Advising

  • Academic Preparation Program advising
  • BCTCblue+ Program and KCTCS Transfer Pathway Guides
  • BTAP (transition from B&E) and ETAP (from Engineering)
  • Career Fairs
  • Advising for Non-degreeseeking High School Students in Dual Credit Programs, e.g., STEAM Academy
  • UK’s National Student Exchange Program
  • Experiential Education Program (EXP courses) and UK-prefix Orientation Courses, including UK150 (Major and Career Exploration)
  • Pre-professional advising
  • Rebound Program for re-admitted students in Undergraduate Studies

As Assistant Provost, Dr. Badger helps the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education lead campus conversations to evaluate and strengthen advising and career services for all undergraduate students. As a faculty champion for exploratory students transitioning from high school as well as from other institutions to UK, Dr. Badger brings a wealth of knowledge to the review committees for curricular proposals. She also coordinates University-wide curriculum processes by leading the Undergraduate Council and the UK Core Education Committee.

Summer Academy@UK 2015 – Collaboration Across Colleges and Support Units

GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy @ UK logoThe GEAR UP Kentucky 3.0 Summer Academy@UK launched on July 5, 2015. This college readiness program at the University of Kentucky is managed by the Division of Undergraduate Education in partnership with the Council on Postsecondary Education’s GEAR UP Kentucky. Now in its second year, the three-week residential program called Summer Academy@UK prepares GEAR UP Kentucky (GUK) students (now rising sophomores and juniors) academically and personally for college – and not just any college. For some great photos and videos of past activities related to GUK at the University of Kentucky in 2013 and 2014, see the UGE Flickr albums.

Retention of Fall 2014 Graduating Cohort on Target to Meet Goal for Increase

This just in from Dr. Bethany Miller, Director of the Office of Retention & Student Success:

The latest Retention Update has been posted. The one-year retention rate of our Fall 2014 cohort students is currently 82.7%.  We continue to remain ahead of last year in the number (452) and percentage (0.4%) of cohort enrollments for fall.

Our overall retention goal for the Fall 2014 cohort is 83.1%, an increase of 1.0% from last year.  Our goal is within reach:  we need a net increase in enrollment of only 26 cohort students.  Please continue the excellent work and collaborations in reaching out to non-registered F14 cohort students.

For more details about individual colleges, see the Retention Update on the Student Success website.

Call for Student Success Workshops – Collaborative Opportunity

In Fall 2015, as part of our upcoming First Year Experience “The Blueprint”, UK will offer Student Success Workshops to all new students. All students taking UK 101 (estimated at 2,500 students) will be required to attend at least one workshop; all other new students will be strongly encouraged to attend, although not required.

Promotion of these workshops will include a hard copy distributed at seeBlue. U. and an electronic copy distributed during K Week. Communications via Workshop Partners, UKPR, UKAT, Retention & Student Success will also promote the event.

Want to offer a Student Success Workshop for your college or department? The Office of Student Success will be accepting Workshop topics until June 15th.  If your college/area is interested in submitting a workshop, please contact Larissa McLaughlin, Student Success Project Manager.

Workshops are free – with no cost to the student – and should be approximately an hour in length. The venue for your proposed Workshop should accommodate 30 students. Attendance will be tracked using UK’s Tally Cats (card swipe) system, so encourage your students to bring their ID cards when they attend. It is recommended that the majority of workshops be offered between the fourth and tenth week of the semester (September 21 – November 6). Students enrolled in UK101 who wait until the end of the course to complete the requirement could cause a potential rush, so some UK 101 instructors can require their students to complete earlier in the semester.

The Student Success Workshop partners in the first meeting to organize these new opportunities for UK’s first-year students were:

  • Academic and Career Exploratory Advising (including Career Center and Undergraduate Studies)
  • CARES
  • Counseling Center
  • Disability Resource Center
  • Education Abroad
  • Financial Ombud
  • First Generation Initiatives (including Robinson Scholars)
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Center
  • Office of Retention & Student Success
  • Office of Student Involvement
  • Student Health
  • Student Support Services
  • Substance Education & Responsibility
  • Transformative Learning (including Academic Enhancement, CNP and Presentation U!)
  • Writing Center

For more information on the first meeting regarding the Student Success Workshops, see the notes from the April 30th Student Success Update
