The Stillman School of Business has earned the 2008 Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Award for Institutional Progress in Student Learning Outcomes. 

The Stillman School is one of three award winners and the only business school to be recognized.

The School was selected on the basis of several criteria including providing evidence of successful institutional outcomes and demonstrating continuous improvement to these outcomes. In addition, the School demonstrated good use of current technology in the methods and tools to track outcomes, strong faculty support, institutional leadership and approaches to outcomes that can be replicated at other institutions.

“This award confirms the exceptional work done at the Stillman School in our undergraduate assessment processes, and comes about from the combined efforts of the faculty and our alumni assessors,” noted Karen Boroff, dean of the Stillman School.

The assessment is a key component of undergraduate education at the Stillman School and is based on the students’ professional development in the areas of 1) change management, 2) critical thinking, 3) communications, 4) teamwork and 5) technology. Participating in the assessment process during either their sophomore or senior year, students' skills in these areas are developed through the core courses of the undergraduate curriculum. 

The process enables the faculty to monitor the overall effectiveness of the undergraduate program and to continuously improve and update the curriculum.

The formal presentation of the award will be at the CHEA Annual Conference in Washington, DC on January 28.
