  26. End of Formal Report BACHELOR OF SCIENCE ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP *See Attached Supporting Information Program Quality Improvement Report 2009-2010

  27. Supporting InformationOverview • The B.S. in Organizational Leadership is offered via the Allied Health and Interdisciplinary Studies Program, a unit of the Department of Adult and Continuing Education. • Also known as the “Adult Degree Completion Degree” or the “Reach Higher Program” – an initiative of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education • Delivered in collaboration with eight other participating institutions across the State of Oklahoma • Combines past college work with a series of courses in online and evening formats to equal a bachelor's degree. In some cases, student's work and life experiences may count for college credit through prior learning assessment. Program Quality Improvement Report 2009-2010

  28. Overview Continued • Curriculum collaboratively developed by the faculty of the eight initial collaborating universities • Admission Requirements: • ≥ age 21 • Completed at least 72 college credit hours • 2.0 minimum graduation/retention GPA in past college course work. • Have completed the general education requirements as defined by Cameron. • Satisfy all Cameron University requirements for remedial coursework. • Core Courses: Primarily business related • CU Focus Area (major concentration): Communications • Benefit: Cost of program is less (do not pay online fees) • Accelerated because of availability of courses across state (each course offered 5 times per year) • Each course is 8 weeks, many are online Program Quality Improvement Report 2009-2010

  29. Supporting Information Informal Feedback from Graduates: Observations • Number of students is increasing due to word of mouth and marketing about program and benefits of obtaining bachelors degree • If students do not meet minimum criteria for program, they are granted conditional admission and put on degree seeking track. This means that not all ORGL (775) students are taking ORGL classes yet. Program Quality Improvement Report 2010-2011

  30. Supporting Information Informal Feedback from Graduates: Students graduating from the BS ORGl degree at Cameron report that their career/job options expand immediately upon graduation An estimated 33% of the students in the BS ORGL program at CU start out with more of an intrinsic motivation to “finish what they started” and have little interest in improving their current job status or earnings The remaining 67% state that their main motivation for retuning to school to complete their undergraduate degree is to improve their current socio-economic status for them and their family. Reports show that the majority graduates in this category end up accomplishing this goal and move on to better paying more professional positions within their current careers/companies or change career paths altogether because of their college grad status **Both of the above categories express a lack of concern for the actual degree type or major and more emphasis is put on just finishing “a degree” Program Quality Improvement Report 2009-2010
