IU East enrollment surpasses 4,000 students, the first time for a spring semester in its history

February 2nd, 2015

Student enrollment at Indiana University East for the 2015 spring semester exceeded the 4,000 level for the first time ever.enrollment2015

As of the last day of registration on January 18, there were 4,016 students enrolled for the spring, exceeding last spring’s enrollment by 160 students. The increase represents a growth of 4.1 percent. Credit hours also reached a record level at 36,668, up 2.5 percent from last spring.

Growth in online enrollment continues to be a major driver for the campus, with almost 50 percent of all credit hours coming from online courses, up 4 percent from last spring. Sixty-five percent of all IU East students are taking at least one online course, and 41 percent are taking all online courses, up 3 percent and 5 percent respectively from last spring.

Executive Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs Larry Richards said, “While our student body continues to consist primarily of Indiana and Ohio residents (78 percent of the students enrolled), our online programs continue to attract students from out of state and out of the country. This spring, we have students from 41 states plus the District of Columbia, and from 21 countries. There are also seven military students overseas enrolled in online courses.”

IU East’s primary mission is to provide bachelor’s and graduate education to students in eastern Indiana and western Ohio. Many of those students take online courses, in addition to on campus courses. The campus offers 11 bachelor’s degree online completion program options, as well as Graduate Certificates in Composition Studies and Mathematics.

“Online delivery of degree programs makes it possible for students who cannot regularly travel the long-distances to the campus from where they might live, or who are working or otherwise committed throughout the week at times when on-campus courses are being offered, to be able to continue their education and achieve the dream of an advanced degree or certificate. By meeting the need of these students in our region with these online courses, we can also accommodate students outside our region who find our programs attractive. This has been a win-win for all,” Richards said.

IU School of Nursing Online RN to BSN program nationally ranked in top 50 by College Choice

January 28th, 2015

Indiana University came in seventh on a list of the top 50 online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) programs in the U.S. The 2015 rankings were compiled by College Choice, an independent college search and rankings website.nursingsignature

IU East School of Nursing Dean Karen Clark said, “The Institute of Medicine has determined that 80 percent of the nursing workforce should be prepared at the baccalaureate (BSN) level or higher in order to best meet patient needs in our ever-changing healthcare environment. Indiana University is playing a key role in helping the state of Indiana reach this goal by offering a collaborative online program. Perhaps the most important part is that nurses can earn a quality education where they work and live. College Choice’s ranking is a wonderful endorsement of our program, especially since it verifies what we hear from our students and their employers.”

The IU East School of Nursing offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a RN to BSN Mobility option is offered to students at IU East’s Richmond campus and off-campus sites in New Castle, Madison and Lawrenceburg, and Good Samaritan Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. IU East also offers a Master of Science in Nursing with three track options in family nurse practitioner, nursing education and nursing administration.

IU East joined the nursing consortium in September 2010 to provide an online option for registered nurses who are interested in earning a bachelor’s degree.

According to College Choice, the rankings were based upon a variety of factors, including faculty, technology, student support, accreditation and cost, as well as the national and regional reputations of each school.

“Our aim is to offer students a ranking of the top online nursing programs they can trust to deliver excellent quality, flexibility, affordability, and results,” said Sara Garbers, a website editor.

Available on eight campuses across Indiana where the school has nursing programs, the RN to BSN degree completion program offers a flexible choice for professional nurses who want to complete their bachelor’s degree while continuing to work. Many employers are taking advantage of the program to ensure that they will be able to meet the Institute of Medicine’s recommendation for their nursing staff.

“The curriculum prepares graduates to function as practitioners in acute and long-term care, community settings, home care, and other nontraditional settings, and also provides a foundation for leadership positions and graduate study,” said Janet Phillips, PhD, RN, director for the RN to BSN Degree Completion Program. “The graduate of the BSN program possesses a broad knowledge of nursing, the humanities, the biological and social sciences. The graduate applies well-developed problem-solving skills in caring for individuals, families, communities and populations.”

Classes are all online with options to graduate in 12, 18 or 24 months, after general education requirements are completed. Nursing courses are delivered in condensed eight-week learning modules, designed to allow students to continue working while taking classes. Students do not have to travel to campus for class.

The program builds on courses that students have already completed, so that previous general education may be counted towards credit.

Affordable Colleges Online 2015’s Best Online Criminal Justice Degrees ranks IU East in top 10 nationally

January 21st, 2015

The Affordable Colleges Online (ACO) recently ranked Indiana University East’s criminal justice online degree completion program as one of 2015’s ten Best Online Criminal Justice Degrees in the country. ACO is a leading resource for online learning and college affordability information.

Schools included offer students affordable, high-quality criminal justice programs combined with the flexibility of distance learning. Flexibility is one of the top reasons students are attracted to online criminal justice degrees.

IU East online degree programs offer the high quality of an Indiana University degree to students throughout Indiana, nationally and internationally. IU East’s online programs offer 10 options for students who wish to complete their bachelor’s degree online. IU East currently offers bachelor’s degrees online in English, Technical and Professional Writing; Natural Science and Mathematics, with a Mathematics Concentration; Communication Studies; Business Administration; Criminal Justice; Political Science; Psychology; Mathematics; General Studies; an RN to BSN Mobility Option; and, a Bachelor of Applied Science for students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science or the equivalent. IU East also offers a Graduate Certificate in Composition Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Mathematics.

The criminal justice program at IU East is distinctive in that it also teaches students management skills which prepares them to be more competitive in the job market and enhances their prospects for advancement. The degree program prepares students for professional careers in law, policing, criminal investigation, juvenile justice, public affairs, crisis management, risk analysis, or graduate school. Students who have taken the first two years of a criminal justice program at another college or university can finish the online program within two years to receive a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.

Acclaimed author Michelle Alexander to address IU campuses Jan. 27

January 15th, 2015

Her book, The New Jim Crow, focuses on status of African-American males since the Civil Rights Movement

Indiana University East invites the campus and community to a lecture by Michelle Alexander, a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate and legal scholar, and author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, at 3:30 p.m. (EST), Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

Alexander’s talk will be streamed to all IU campuses live from IU Northwest, where she will be appearing in person — the pinnacle of the Northwest campus’s One Book…One Campus…One Community reading initiative, which encourages the campus and greater community to collectively examine issues explored in the chosen book.

Thanks to support from IU Bloomington’s Office of the Vice-President for Diversity, Equity and Multicultural Affairs, the streamed lecture will be viewed at 3:30 p.m. in Springwood Hall Room 202C. Following the lecture, Alexander will invite questions and answers from the audience at IU Northwest until 5 p.m. (EST).

Alexander’s book, The New Jim Crow, is a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African-Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status — denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. Since its publication in 2010, the book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year; been dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” by numerous commentators, including Cornel West; and has led to consciousness-raising efforts in universities, churches, community centers, re-entry centers and prisons nationwide.

Alexander currently holds a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University.  Prior to joining the Kirwan Institute, Alexander was an associate professor of law at Stanford Law School, where she directed the Civil Rights Clinics, designed to be an introduction to civil rights litigation and advocacy for students.

In 2005, she won a Soros Justice Fellowship, which supported the writing of The New Jim Crow. The book has received rave reviews and has been featured in national radio and television media outlets, including NPR, The Bill Moyers Journal, the Tavis Smiley Show, C-Span Washington Journal, among others.

For several years, Alexander served as the Director of the Racial Justice Project for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Northern California, where she helped to lead a national campaign against racial profiling by law enforcement. While an associate at Saperstein, Goldstein, Demchak & Baller, she specialized in plaintiff-side class action lawsuits alleging race and gender discrimination.

Alexander is a graduate of Stanford Law School and Vanderbilt University.

IU East MLK Jr. Celebration, Women in Leadership featured speaker is Gloria Burgess

January 14th, 2015

Indiana University East will feature Gloria J. Burgess as this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration speaker at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 22, in Vivian Auditorium, located in Whitewater Hall. Burgess will present “Martin Luther King Jr.: Legacy for Life in the 21st Century.”GloriaBurgess

The presentation is free and open to the public. For ticket information, visit IUEast-MLK.eventbrite.com.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is sponsored by the IU East Diversity Committee and the IU East Center for Leadership Development.

Burgess is an inspirational speaker who has presented key note addresses and tributes for more than 30 years. She presents forums, master classes, and business consultations on leadership development, coaching and mentorship.

Sheila Armstead, clinical assistant professor of social work, is a member of the IU East Diversity Committee. She said Burgess’ message will provide a message for young people, and others, to work for their goals no matter what obstacles may lay in the way.

“In times of uneasiness, we find ourselves once again fighting for equality on women’s issues, race, and education,” Armstead said. “Gloria had excellent role models, including her parents, who showed her that if there is something you want, keep working toward that goal and don’t let anyone stop you. Gloria broke through many barriers based on their example. I hope people will come to the presentation and leave inspired to work toward their dream.”

Burgess is the President and CEO of Jazz, Inc., a company she operates with her husband and co-CEO, John Burgess. In addition to her background in technology, business and inspirational leadership, she is a poet. Her work appears in numerous anthologies, including The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South.  Her most recent work includes two books on leadership in the Building Leadership Bridges series and Dare to Wear Your Soul on the Outside. Burgess is also a Distinguished Scholar in Theater Performance and Direction. She holds graduate degrees in leadership and communication, and an M.B.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Southern California.

Burgess is also the featured speaker of this year’s Women in Leadership workshop hosted by the IU East Center for Leadership Development.  The workshop is 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, January 23, 2015. The workshop will be held in the Whitewater Hall Community Room.

For this event, Burgess will present “Flawless Leadership: Connecting Your Voice and Touch.” The workshop is sponsored by the Center for Leadership, part of the IU East School of Business and Economics.

There is a $75 fee for this event. Registration is required; RSVP at iue.edu/leadership.

Fredricka Joyner, associate professor of business administration and organization behavior at IU East, is the director of the Center for Leadership Development.

“The Women in Leadership workshop provides a unique opportunity to attend a workshop facilitated by someone with the depth and breadth that Burgess brings – an artist who is well-grounded in both the business context and in the work of leadership and leadership development,” Joyner said. “The workshop will bring together women from many facets of the community to spend the morning exploring how to more fully bring their diverse and unique gifts to the work of leadership, in all areas of their lives. It promises to be a profound and moving experience and a great way to kick off 2015.”
