  • During FY 08, the CEIP program manager, in collaboration with a faculty committee, conducted a CAS program self-study. During FY 09 recommendations from the self-study will be selected for implementation based on feasibility, available staff, etc. The impact of innovations will be measured via stakeholder surveys and student learning outcomes with the aim of a 2% increase in the balanced scorecard measures of engaging students, engaging faculty, and engaging the community in work-integrated learning.

    Based on the CAS self-study and changes at COD, I have selected the following areas for improvement over a three year period: adopt online forms and electronic permits; rewrite stakeholder handbooks; streamline the process of preparing students to pursue and succeed at coops and internships; and adapt to Datatel with the goal of streamlining the student registration and faculty payment process. Improvements in these areas should impact the Balanced Scorecard measures for this unit.
