Professional Development & Research
The CCCU has created a Research Council, comprised of representatives from CCCU faculty, Chief Academic Officers, Senior Student Development Officers, Institutional Research Officers, and Campus Ministry Directors.
We have launched a new initiative that will continue the good work of the Coordinated Assessment Project (1997-2015) but expand its scope to help us provide empirical evidence that Christian higher education is indeed a significant and valuable enterprise.
Following the administration and evaluation of CCCU Needs Assessment Survey we have determined that our focus will be on data collected on an established cycle with national and CCCU norms, as well as predictive analytics to help our member institutions use the data to improve the student experience.
This level of data analysis, along with institutional reports that contain predictors of student success and suggestions for improving the student experience, make this a valuable research initiative for our members.
Although the full research agenda of the project will be unveiled at the CAO and CSDO conferences in San Diego on February 9, 2017, we’d like to capitalize on a data collection opportunity this spring to kick off the initial phase of the project. Thus, we are encouraging CCCU institutions to participate in two data collection opportunities in the Spring of 2017.
