7POSSIBLE DECISIONS FROM PROGRAM REVIEW PHASE OUT: The program should be eliminated.REVIEW: Some pressing issues or concerns raised by the Panel’s review of the program need immediate investigation by appropriate administrators and faculty.MAINTAIN but REVIEW: The program should be continued but its review has raised questions or concerns about specific aspects of the program that should be further investigated and addressed by appropriate administrators and faculty.
8POSSIBLE DECISIONS FROM PROGRAM REVIEW MAINTAIN: The program should be continued. This recommendation should not be misconstrued to mean that such programs have sufficient resources to maintain quality, or that they should be maintained 'as is'. Many programs in this category make strong appeals for specific types of additional support, usually staffing and/or equipment.ENHANCE: The program should be provided significant additional resources.
10Formulae for Program Review Program Budget = (Program Faculty Salaries / Dept. Faculty Salaries) X Dept. BudgetCost Per Faculty FTE = Program Budget / Faculty FTECost Per Student FTE = Program Budget / Student FTECost Per Credit Hour = Program Budget / Academic Year Credit Hours in Major
11First Year ProcessSelf-study by the academic unit responsible for the program.If the program is externally accredited, the Program Review Panel will accept the self- study prepared for the external agency in lieu of the ORU-prescribed document.
14Diversity TrainingDr. Collier organized at least a diversity of thought issue in hosting Dr. Phllip Johnson on the whole Intelligent Design and Evolution issue which was attended by students, faculty and was open to the public and many local Tulsa residents attended. Drs Collier and Weed both teach in the Philosophy of Science honors course which is multi disciplinary by its vary nature, bringing together elements of thought from theology, history, ethics, behavioral science, philosophy, and science.41. Mentoring StudentsFaculty advisors assume the role of mentors on a regular basis. Faculty invite students to their homes and spent quality time with them outside of the formal class setting, particularly in the Senior Paper context. The Chemical Instrumentation and Quantitative Analysis classes are really mentoring sessions between faculty and students as they solve problems together.42. Learning CommunityThe American Chemical Society is definitely a learning community as students and faculty meet one a month for activities and special seminars. The MCAT self assessment and self study mentoring group is another learning community as students meet to share ideas and information about getting into medical school. The Philosophy of Science and Christian Worldview group composed of chemistry students and chemistry faculty is a learning group designed to enhance the learning experience.PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO ENHANCE FACILITATION OF LEARNING-PROGRAM LEVEL43. Eighth Floor Coupon HoursDrs. Weed and Klehm are both certified Master teachers and have led multiple workshops44. Eighth Floor OtherAll departmental faculty have attended one or more Eight Floor classes and are now actively designing and using Power Point presentations in their teaching. Most have presentations and notes on either a web site or on eli.45. Professional Meetings Attended58th Annual American Scientific Affiliation meeting in Lakewood, Colorado presentation on “Teaching Honors Level Philosophy of Science/Origins in a Christian University Environment” (Dr. Collier).46. Conferences/Meetings on CampusArranged and hosted (in conjunction with the Faculty Christian Worldview Committee) the internationally known founder of the Intelligent Design Movement and author of the best selling book titled Darwin on Trial UC Berkeley professor emeritus Professor of Law Philip Johnson.,47. Visitation of Classrooms by ChairOnce per academic year usually in the spring semester.48. Visitation of Classrooms by PeersFaculty usually choose this pathway in the spring semester.49. Faculty Mentoring ActivitiesSeveral faculty have been involved in the New Faculty Mentoring Program.50. Professional Development Plans (completed, approved, and reviewed)See attached Appendix B51. Leadership Development Activities (for faculty)52. Leadership Development Activities (for students)The American Chemical Society student affiliates chapter holds annual elections for its officers. This is an excellent leadership training opportunity. An annual report to the main office of the ACS must be written before school ends. The club holds numerous events during the academic year.53. Faculty Participation in CCCU Events, AuSable, Heart, etc.Drs Weed and Collier together with undergraduate theology faculty from ORU regularly attend CCCU Calvin College meetings on Christian Worldview, Ethics and Philosophy of Science.54. Student Participation in CCCU Events, AuSable, Heart, etc.Biomedical Chemistry majors often attend the summer AuSable course to earn one of their required biology field course credits.55. Student Opinion Survey (Rank, Average, Participation)-Supply Grid for Faculty Members in ProgramFor fall 203, chemistry was 8th with 100% of the faculty participating for 100% of the classes taught and 466 student responses with a cumulative average of See attached Appendix CASSESSMENT OF PROGRAM56.
