10 CRITERION 1.1: MISSION 10 P a g e

11 CRITERION 1.1: MISSION The program shall have a clearly formulated and publicly stated mission with supporting goals, objectives, and values. 1.1.a. A clear and concise mission statement for the program as a whole The mission of the Public Health Program at Touro University California (TUC) is to promote the health and well-being of local and global communities through education, service, and research with a focus on underserved populations. 1.1.b. A statement of values that guides the program The Public Health Program has committed to the following core values: Leadership, with humility The PH Program recognizes that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to achieve a common goal with the recognition that we cannot succeed without help, and that our sense of purpose fits within a larger context of what is individually beneficial. Compassion, toward all Empathy, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate inequity, underlies our philosophy. Humanism: bettering humanity The PH Program places emphasis on subjective meaning, a rejection of determinism, and a concern for positive growth which guides our approach towards alleviating the suffering of the underserved. Change: learning from communities The PH Program is guided by the principle that the underserved have input into their own treatments and interventions and public health personnel do not impose programs without the knowledge and consent of the communities membership. Discovery: new knowledge to promote health equity The PH Program encourages its faculty and students to actively pursue the latest determinations, breakthroughs, and findings with the understanding that they will be translated into beneficial applications to underserved communities. Reason: determine best practices through empirical evidence The PH Program believes that reason is used to determine truth and to guide our understanding and evaluation of any and all practices which must be based upon verifiable evidence and data. These values were initially developed and operationalized at the inception of the Program during the Program s Strategic Retreat in They were distributed in written form to all faculty, staff, and students; uploaded on the TUC PH Program s website; incorporated annually into the MPH Student Handbook (see Electronic Resource File, 1.5) and discussed at every student orientation. 11 P a g e

12 Finally, strategic planning retreats are held every other year to discuss and obtain consensus among faculty and staff on the short- and long- term plans of the Program which serves to evaluate the relevance of these values and how they continue to guide the Program. 1.1.c. One or more goal statements for each major function through which the program intends to attain its mission, including at a minimum, instruction, research, and service INSTRUCTION: The Public Health Program will provide the instruction necessary to ensure that all MPH graduates demonstrate TUC public health competencies with a focus on the underserved and can demonstrate skill in the core areas of public health. RESEARCH: Faculty and students develop and participate in local and global research targeted toward health equity and improving the well-being of the underserved. SERVICE: The PH Program will provide faculty and students with opportunities for service with local and global community organizations that are committed to improving the well-being of underserved populations. 1.1.d. A set of measurable objectives with quantifiable indicators related to each goal statement as provided in Criterion 1.1.c. In some cases, qualitative indicators may be used as appropriate. Table 1.1.d: Program Goals and Objectives Table 1.1.d: Program Goals and Objectives: INSTRUCTION GOAL 1: The Public Health Program will provide the instruction necessary to ensure that all MPH graduates demonstrate TUC public health competencies with a focus on the underserved and can demonstrate knowledge and skill in the core areas of public health.

At least five students will serve on PH Program committees. *While all Global Health Track students are expected to conduct their field study experience abroad, exceptions are considered and approved on an individual basis for extenuating circumstances such as illness or financial constraints, which in that case, a domestic placement with a global emphasis would be arranged. 1.1.e. Description of the manner through which the mission, values, goals, and objectives were developed, including a description of how various specific stakeholder groups were involved in their development The mission statement, goals, and objectives of the TUC PH Program were developed via an assessment and review involving three distinct groups within a concentric committee process beginning in May First, the Program Director and a senior member of the faculty began developing a draft of the mission, goals, and objectives before forwarding it on to the entire PH faculty, the first of the three groups. Once all PH faculty members had contributed to the revision of the draft, it was then sent onto the second group, consisting of the faculty and administration of the greater TUC community, for input and feedback. Upon incorporating suggestions from the second group, the third group (consisting of community members), was consulted for its response and comments. Lastly, a final version was submitted to the Program Director for final approval and was subsequently finalized and disseminated to all key stakeholders in March For more details about this process, refer to the 2009 CEPH self-study report in Criterion 1.1 d. Five years following the initial development of the Public Health Program s mission, goals, and objectives, they remain largely unchanged. Only minor modifications were made for some objectives to clarify how targets are being met. A subcommittee composed of Drs. Assefaw, Brinkley, and Thairu met to discuss and review all criteria in 1.1 during the April 11 and 12, 2013 Accreditation Retreat and found there to be no need for any changes. Results were reported to the entire faculty at a 2013 faculty meeting, where they were reviewed again and approved. 1.1.f. Description of how the mission, values, goals, and objectives are made available to the program s constituent groups, including the general public, and how they are routinely reviewed and revised to ensure relevance The Program s mission, goals, and objectives serve as the foundation for its curriculum and overall planning and evaluation. This set of guidelines is made available to our key stakeholders via the Program promotional materials, the MPH Student Handbook, and the Program website. The Program monitors and reviews its goals and objectives through annual retreats and regular committee meetings. Any significant change in the curriculum is proposed by the PH Curriculum Committee and reviewed by all PH Program Faculty during annual curriculum retreats. Final 14 P a g e

15 approval is made by the PH Program Director and the Community Advisory Council. Vital qualitative feedback on the Program s strengths and weaknesses is obtained via regular student update sessions and meetings with the Program Director s MPH Student Advisory Team. Students are also required to complete confidential surveys designed to evaluate student satisfaction and assess the Program s quality control measures. The Program provides an Entrance Survey for new students and follows up with a Current Student Survey after they complete two semesters. Students also complete Exit Surveys prior to graduation. A survey is disseminated to alumni three months after graduation. Additionally, field site preceptors are routinely surveyed to assess the competency of MPH students. Further assessment of the progress towards goals and objectives is accomplished using the results of student course evaluations and faculty course evaluation. Student evaluation results are summarized and reviewed by the Program Director and PH faculty and are also presented to MPH students in the Student Update Meetings. 1.1.g. Assessment of the extent to which this criterion is met and an analysis of the program s strengths, weaknesses, and plans relating to this criterion This criterion is met. Strengths: The main strengths of the PH Program revolve around the existing framework from which the core mission, goals, and objectives were initially developed with participation of the faculty, students and members of the community. Five years later, the PH Program determined that this provided a solid foundation which helped to maintain and strengthen the Program s continued growth and development. Weakness: Although the PH Program faculty followed a comprehensive process to review the established PH Program goals and objectives, only minor revisions were made. There has been only incremental movement beyond formative and process-oriented objectives since the Program s inception. Consequently, the Program recognizes the need to reevaluate overall Program assessment with the incorporation of additional outcome assessment measures. Plan: The Program will work to modify the existing formative process-oriented objectives towards a more outcome-driven set, based on maturity of the program which will require reevaluation of the objectives. This work will be undertaken during the Strategic Planning Retreat, which will focus on the appraisal of the last Five-Year Strategic Plan ( , and develop a new , Five-Year Strategic Plan (see Electronic Resource File, 1.1). 15 P a g e

17 CRITERION 1.2: EVALUATION The program shall have an explicit process for monitoring and evaluating its overall efforts against its mission, goals, and objectives; for assessing the program s effectiveness in serving its various constituencies; and for using evaluation results in ongoing planning and decision making to achieve its mission. As part of the evaluation process, the program must conduct an analytical self-study that analyzes performance against the accreditation criteria defined in this document. 1.2.a. Description of the evaluation processes used to monitor progress against objectives defined in Criterion 1.1.d, including identification of the data systems and responsible parties associated with each objective and with the evaluation process as a whole. If these are common across all objectives, they need be described only once. If systems and responsible parties vary by objective or topic area, sufficient information must be provided to identify the systems and responsible party for each. Table 1.2.a.1. presents the outcome objectives used to monitor program progress and effectiveness. These objects are defined in criteria 1.1.d. The following presents the individual objectives for each goal corresponding to a data source and responsible party. As described in 1.1.e, several faculty committees and stakeholder groups are involved in monitoring and reviewing the Program s goals and objectives.

Description of how the results of the evaluation processes described in Criterion 1.2.a. are monitored, analyzed, communicated, and regularly used by managers responsible for enhancing the quality of programs and activities Overall program activities are regularly monitored and evaluated as shown in Table 1.2.c. Evaluation results have been, and will continue to be, the foundation for program maintenance or adjustments. The Curriculum Committee in collaboration with the Program Evaluation Committee, reviews assessments and, when appropriate, makes recommendations to the Executive Committee for any changes that should be considered. Assessments consists of feedback solicited from current students and alumni, faculty, community members, and field study supervisors through course evaluations, alumni/student surveys, and student update meetings; program committee meetings; and faculty retreats. Overall changes specific to instructional outcome measures are generally initiated by course evaluations and general student feedback. The following are examples of how course evaluations and other student feedback have been used for specific program revisions and program planning: Technological enhancement in course improvement: As a result of faculty and student evaluations, discussions, and feedback monitored over the last three years, the Program incrementally introduced blended/hybrid distance learning approaches to many of the MPH courses over the last several years. To ensure the success of this new direction, a position in the Public Health Program was proposed by the PH Program Executive Committee to the TUC 19 P a g e

20 administration to support this initiative. This individual will provide online support for distance learning for instructors and work closely with the Information Technology Department to identify technology issues for distance-learning students and PH faculty (full- time and adjunct), and assist faculty in the design and development of online and hybrid courses using instructional media and distance education applications. Course content across the curriculum: Through regular monitoring of course evaluations, student update meetings, and focus groups held over the last two years, the Program determined that there was some course content overlap in some core and track courses. Review of course content, activities, and topics in each course indicated an overlap in the use of instructional tools such as informational media, topic areas, and course projects. For example, it was determined that health ethics was a major component of three different courses (Epidemiology, Program Evaluation, and Research Methods), each requiring National Institutes of Health (NIH) online ethics training. Through curriculum mapping, this conflict was resolved, allowing health ethics to be a major focus in Research Methods in which online NIH certification training is now required. The PH Program determined that ethics, as a main focus, should remain in only one course. This decision was articulated at the 2013 Curriculum Retreat and approved by the Executive and Curriculum Committees. Joint MSPAS/MPH Program Curriculum: Over the course of two years, course evaluations, student focus groups, and PA Faculty town hall meetings of the Joint MSPAS/MPH Students investigated the need to change the course sequence of the Joint MSPAS/MPH 33-month curriculum. There were major concerns regarding the intensity of the program and the feasibility of being able to successfully maintain and complete courses in both programs. Students in the Joint Program reported experiencing difficulty in their efforts to maintain equal engagement in both curricula. Consequently, the Joint MSPAS/MPH Class of 2016 commenced this joint curriculum with MPH courses frontloaded (13 of 30 units) in the first semester and tapering off over the remaining semesters. The details of the curriculum change were discussed and approved by both programs via annual retreats and meetings. The results of this curriculum change will be closely monitored by both programs via mid-term and end-of-program evaluation efforts. Practical public health skill needs: Results from the current student survey and course evaluations (particularly Biostatistics) have indicated students desire for more practical skills based learning opportunities, such learning a statistical software package. Through a series of preceptor evaluations and faculty Curriculum meetings, this recommendation was supported and expanded to include more practical public health skill courses or workshops to provide skills for job readiness. For example, students requested additional statistical software training which resulted in the development of a free online STATA seminar which was developed and made available for students, alumni, and the general public. The decision to offer this online seminar was approved by the Executive and Curriculum Committees in Spring 2012 and is advertised to the student body every semester as an available seminar. From this series of evaluation sources, the Program developed a course to encompass three major practical skills: Qualitative Analysis, Project Management, and Survey Design. This course was created to provide career-building compliance for implementing the Affordable Care Act in various public health settings and made first available in Spring The effectiveness of this course will be analyzed through routine course, field study preceptor, and employer evaluations. 20 P a g e
