5 Criterion 1: The Public Health Program 1.1. Mission 1.1.a. A clear and concise mission statement for the Program as a whole The Missouri State University Master of Public Health (MPH) Program mission is to prevent disease, promote health, and protect the well-being of the public through education, research and service. This mission, which emerged from the Program s vision, A better world through public health, is publicly stated and includes supporting goals and objectives. The MPH Program mission is consistent with that of Missouri State University and the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS). All three missions focus on educating students with an emphasis on public affairs. Of course, the program and college missions place special emphasis on the public s health and well-being. Consistency is apparent upon review of the program mission and the College and University mission statements presented, below: The College of Health and Human Services focuses on improving the health and well-being of people in Missouri, the nation, and the global community through education, research, and service. CHHS values multidisciplinary approaches, instills the public affairs mission, and encourages students and faculty to develop lifelong learning skills. Missouri State University is a public, comprehensive university system with a mission in public affairs, whose purpose is to develop educated persons. 1.1.b. Goal statements for each major function by which the Program intends to attain its mission, including instruction, research and service The MPH Program instructional goal is to develop students to be exemplary professionals who are able to integrate and apply the knowledge basic to public health and perform its core functions through the effective delivery of the ten essential services. The MPH Program research goal is to engage in research and evidence-based applications that advance public health knowledge and community practice. The MPH Program service goal is to improve local and global public health through collaborative community service. 1.1.c. Set of measurable objectives relating to each major function through which the Program intends to achieve its goals of instruction, research, and service The Program goals identified above are associated with measurable objectives related to each major function (instruction, research and service). These objectives are as follows: Instructional Goal Objectives Objective 1.1: Objective 1.2: Offer a curriculum that supports the development of core and cross-cutting competencies for public health; Allow for elective courses that enhance and expand the learning experiences in relation to student interests in public health and strengthen the competencies learned in required courses; Master of Public Health Self Study Criterion 1 Missouri State University Page 5

6 Instructional Goal Objectives, contd. Objective 1.3: Objective 1.4: Provide students with opportunities for integration and practical application of the learned competencies through a field experience, capstone project, and other educational, research and service activities; Endorse cultural competence and promote diversity of thought; Research Goal Objectives Objective 2.1: Objective 2.2: Objective 2.3: Objective 2.4: Ensure faculty and student involvement in research activities that advance public health knowledge and practice; Disseminate research findings to practitioners, policy makers, the scientific community and the public; Collaborate with public health practitioners in research activities that advance public health knowledge and practice; Promote collaborative research across the college and university that aims to improve the health of communities; Service Goal Objectives Objective 3.1: Objective 3.2: Objective 3.3: Objective 3.4: Ensure faculty and student involvement in collaborative service activities that advance public health knowledge and practice; Improve the health of communities through faculty and student participation in collaborative community service activities; Promote collaborative service across the college and university that aims to improve the health of communities; Offer workforce development opportunities for public health professionals; 1.1.d. Description of the manner in which mission, goals and objectives are developed, monitored and periodically revised and the manner in which they are made available to the public The current mission, goals, and objectives of the MPH Program were developed and refined collaboratively over an eighteen-month period. The process began at a visioning retreat held in November 2009 with a multidisciplinary group of 27 faculty, students, alumni, public health professionals, and representatives of university leadership. Meeting participants drafted the program s vision and new mission and goals and participated in discussion that formed the foundation of the Program s current objectives. A copy of the report from this retreat is available in the Program s on-site resources files. Various committees were formed shortly after the visioning retreat and the Self-Study Steering Committee (SSC) and the MPH Evaluation Committee were presented an initial charge to review/refine the mission and goals and the program objectives, respectively. Both committees are made up of MPH faculty, students and alumni, as well as public health professionals. Others not directly involved with the SSC or Evaluation Committees contributed to the process through Master of Public Health Self Study Criterion 1 Missouri State University Page 6

7 meetings/discussions with the Program Director and/or opportunities to review and comment on drafts of this self-study report. The SSC refined and ultimately approved the program s current mission and goals early in the fall 2010 semester. And, the Evaluation Committee developed the program objectives in the late fall 2010 and early spring 2011 meetings and then forwarded such to the SSC for final review and endorsement. The program mission, goals and objectives have been monitored throughout the self study and will continue to be monitored through ongoing program assessment and evaluation activities (see list of activities in Table 1.2.a., pp ). Through the activities listed in this table, data related to the Program s instruction, research and service outcome measures is collected. At the end of each academic year, the Program Director summarizes data collected from these activities and, in the fall semester, prepares a Report to MPH Program Constituents. This report (available in on-site resource files) is reviewed by the faculty, the MPH Advisory Council, and the Evaluation and Curriculum Committees. Review and discussion of this information forms the basis of possible revisions to the mission, goals and objectives. Beginning 2012, the Program intends to host an Annual MPH Program Retreat early each fall that will provide an opportunity for such discussion to occur among all Program constituents collectively. The program vision, mission, goals and objectives are available to the public via our MPH website (http://www.missouristate.edu/mph) and are published in the MPH Student Handbook (see Appendix A) the MPH Advisory Council Handbook (available in Program s on-site resource files). The Program vision, mission and the instructional goal and objectives are included in the MPH Program Brochure (Appendix B). 1.1.e. Statement of values that guide the Program, with a description of how the values are determined and operationalized The Missouri State University MPH Program embraces the following core values: Educational Excellence Foster individual student learning and professional development in an environment of high academic standards. Collaboration Cultivate the understanding that mutually-supportive relationships are necessary to achieve common goals. Effective Communication Cultivate knowledge and skills to apply appropriate communication strategies in order to promote public health. Systems Thinking Address public health issues with a realization of the way those issues are connected with each other in cyclical systems that are beyond simple cause-and-effect relationships. Policy Develop and implement public health policy through assessment of community needs and readiness, persistence in education, and collaborative synergy. Master of Public Health Self Study Criterion 1 Missouri State University Page 7

8 Effective Leadership Develop and hone leadership skills for implementation in academics and throughout the community. Evidence-Based Use critical analysis of valid research and appropriately-obtained data to guide the formulation of public health policies and programs. Professionalism Display a high standard of respect, honesty, fairness, dedication and competence. Ethical Demonstrate justice, beneficence and respect for persons in the delivery of public health education and services. Equity Demonstrate compassion, equity, and social justice in defining and addressing public health issues. Community Service/Responsibility Serve the community so as to elevate the standard of health. Cultural Competence Embrace diversity and pursue cultural competence in conducting research and providing public health education and services. Key components for most of the above value statements were drafted at the visioning retreat in November The Self-Study Steering Committee (SSC) used these components and developed specific values statements during the fall 2010 semester, further refining and approving the current values in early spring The MPH Advisory Council reviewed and endorsed the value statements later that semester. Our program values guide our work as faculty, students, and as a program and reflect the actions we want to model. The values are operationalized, therefore, through our interactions within the program as well as in the community. 1.1.f. Assessment of the extent to which this criterion is met This criterion is met. Strengths The Program has a clearly stated mission with supporting goals and objectives. The MPH mission, goals and objectives were developed and are monitored collaboratively, and are made available to the public. The Program fosters the development of professional public health values.

9 1.2. Evaluation and Planning 1.2.a. Description of the evaluation procedures and planning processes used by the Program, including an explanation of how constituent groups are involved in these processes The MPH Program has a variety of evaluation and assessment procedures in place to monitor its effectiveness in meeting the Program mission, goals and objectives. A brief description of these activities and the constituent groups involved follow: Alumni and Student Surveys These surveys assess graduates and current students perceived ability to effectively perform the Program competencies as well as their satisfaction with various aspects of the MPH program. The student surveys also assess level of student involvement in research and survey activities. Employer Survey The employer survey obtains valuable feedback from supervisors of our Program graduates in regard to the graduates ability to effectively perform the competencies in the practice setting and the extent to which our graduates are prepared to work in public health. Faculty Evaluation of Student Performance and Attainment of Program Competencies Student performance and attainment of Program competencies are evaluated by faculty not only through monitoring of course grades, but through evaluation of performance on the core exam, the capstone project and field experience. Preceptor Evaluations of Student Interns Beginning spring 2012, students will evaluate the field placement site, experiences, and preceptor at the conclusion of his/her placement. This will be accomplished through a new site-evaluation tool recently included in the MPH Field Experience Manual (available in on-site resource files). Course Evaluations Through course evaluations, students provide feedback regarding course content, learning resources, teaching methods, as well as instructor knowledge and teaching effectiveness. Annual Review of Faculty Performance Through annual review of progress toward tenure and promotion and/or annual merit/ performance reviews, faculty are evaluated in terms of teaching effectiveness as well as research and service productivity and performance. Such review is based on a combination of faculty selfevaluation, peer evaluation, student evaluation, and other documentation in support of effectiveness in teaching, research and service. The review process (described more thoroughly in Criterion 1.5.a. and 4.2.c.) begins with the MPH Personnel Committee and moves forward through the MPH Director, the Dean, and to the Provost. Annual Reports Each spring semester, an Annual Program Report is typically prepared and submitted to the CHHS Dean providing information on Program progress and success in terms of major achievements, contributions toward College goals, student recruitment, admissions retention, and graduation, credit hour production, student and faculty awards, and faculty research productivity, etc. A separate Report to MPH Program Constituents is also prepared that includes some information from the spring report to the Dean along with additional data specific to outcome measures related to the Programs instruction, research and service goals and objectives. These reports are available in the Program s on-site resources files. Master of Public Health Self Study Criterion 1 Missouri State University Page 9

10 Planning for MPH Program evaluation and assessment began at the November 2009 visioning retreat when the Program s vision and new mission, goals and foundation of current objectives were developed. Continued planning has occurred mostly through the MPH Evaluation Committee. Throughout the self-study period, the Evaluation Committee met face-to face at least once monthly in addition to smaller working group meetings and communication via . In so doing, this committee 1) identified program outcome measures and established targets for such; 2) identified and established evaluation and assessment procedures used by the Program; 3) developed the Program s Evaluation and Assessment Plan, presented in Table 1.2.a., (see next two pages) and 4) developed surveys and other evaluation and assessment tools. As mentioned earlier, faculty, student, alumni, and public health practitioner committee members have all been extremely active in attending scheduled meetings and completing committee assignments. The Evaluation Committee (chaired by the MPH Director) will continue to play a major role in the developing, monitoring, and carrying out Program evaluation and assessment activities.

13 1.2.b. Description of how the results of evaluation and planning are regularly used to enhance the quality of Programs and activities The Program uses data collected from its evaluation and assessment activities to improve Program quality. Each semester, the MPH Director summarizes this data and presents such to appropriate committees for review. Committees then make recommendations for relevant changes to curriculum, other Program requirements, policy, or to evaluation/assessment processes or tools. The Director then brings any recommendations related to major Program changes to the entire MPH faculty for discussion and possible approval. As changes are made and data are collected, the cycle continues. One example of how results of evaluation and planning are used to make changes is in regard to an evaluation tool. Upon reviewing data from preceptor evaluations of student field placement performance, the Evaluation Committee noted a very high percentage of students (>80%) receive an average performance rating of >4 on a scale of 1-5, where 4 is above average and 5 is excellent. This brought up a discussion of what constitutes above average and excellent performance and whether or not most MPH students really are performing above what is typically expected of a new public health employee. From this discussion, the Committee decided to set the target for this outcome measure at 85% and then to re-evaluate that target after an explicit rubric is developed and utilized by preceptors. This issue did not require approval from the MPH faculty. Another example stems from results of the alumni survey. In asking Program graduates about their perceived level of proficiency in Program competencies, biostatistics and epidemiology were areas that received less favorable responses as compared to the other areas of competence. As a result, members of the MPH Curriculum Committee and MPH faculty are discussing the possibility of creating a new advanced biostatistics and epidemiology elective or required course. This would be a change requiring faculty approval. The MPH Advisory Council provides ongoing consultation and advisement to the MPH Director regarding Program effectiveness toward its stated goals. The Advisory Council also reviews the Program data and advises the Director about any changes needed. Again, any recommendations related to major Program changes are brought to the MPH faculty for discussion and possible approval. Beginning fall 2011, the Program Director included evaluation and assessment data in the first Annual Report to MPH Program Constituents. This report is reviewed by the MPH faculty, the Evaluation and Curriculum Committees, and the MPH Advisory Council, and is made available to all other MPH Program committee members and students. All constituents are asked to respond to the report by suggesting follow-up or action items and/or commenting on Program priorities in terms of changes to address any deficiencies identified by the evaluation process. As mentioned in criterion 1.1.d., the Program intends to begin hosting an annual retreat early each fall semester. At this retreat, the Program Director will provide a presentation of the report. Group discussion following the presentation will provide an opportunity for feedback to occur among all Program constituents collectively. 1.2.c. Identification of outcome measures that the Program uses to monitor its effectiveness in meeting its mission, goals and objectives The MPH Program goals and associated objectives (outlined, above, in criteria 1.1.c.) are similarly associated with outcome measures the program uses to monitor its effectiveness in meeting its stated mission, goals, and objectives. These outcome measures, along with established targets and data regarding the program s performance for each of the last three years, are outlined, below, in Tables 1.2.c.1., 1.2.c.2, and 1.2.c., for instruction, research and service, respectively.
