Should we be giving students fewer choices on the path to graduation?  A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education  discusses how guided pathways can help students make better choices and avoid costly mistakes that can delay time to graduation.  Pathways, the article explains, are not about taking away choice but making sure that students are taking the right course at the right time.  Early data shows improved retention and performance from those students who have participated in the pathways initiative at several community colleges.

Congratulations to Stevenson University's Class of 2017!  We are so proud of you and your accomplishments.  Please keep in touch!

Congratulations to graduating English Department seniors and the newest members of English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, who were recognized at the Department's showcase last week!  Internship placements included a small independent press, Girls' Life magazine, and SU's own Greenspring Review.  Many thanks to the English faculty for your support of the students!


"The ideal college education can yield rocket scientists who write poetry," according to John M. Eger and Norah P. Shultz in The San Diego Tribune The authors argue that today's employers value innovation and creativity and that an education taht blends both STEM fields and the arts & humanities is the best preparation for the workplace. They note that more and more employers are recognizing "the vital role of the arts, the liberal arts, as a pathway to success and survival in the new, truly global, economy and society."  It is the responsibility of universities, then, to ensure that students have opportunities to explore and gain experience with a wide variety of subjects across all of these disciplines.

Check out the Spring 2017 issue of The Greenspring Review featuring original writing, photography, fashion design, and artwork by SU students!
