1 KNOWLEDGE POWERS WISCONSIN S FUTURE UW COLLEGES Annual Accountability Report,

2 Status At-A-Glance Core Strategy 1: Prepare Students UW Colleges campuses prepare all students for success with a curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and integrative thinking skills. The result is a proven record of transfer success, particularly for students who complete two full years before transfer. Core Strategy 2: Stronger Workforce UW Colleges strengthens Wisconsin s workforce by providing access to higher education to groups underrepresented among the state s degree holders. A new flexible degree option will provide even greater access to an associate degree. Core Strategy 3: Stronger Businesses Wisconsin businesses rely upon UW Colleges to provide current and future employees with the opportunity to acquire skills that add value. This is especially true for the growing numbers of students majoring in the STEM fields. Core Strategy 5: Resources Developing the talents of faculty and staff is a priority for UW Colleges. The central focus of this development is improved teaching and learning. Core Strategy 6: Operational Excellence With an emphasis on flexibility, UW Colleges is responsive to the changing needs of students. By offering courses through a variety of delivery modes, small campuses can efficiently increase the numbers and variety of courses they can offer. Core Strategy 7: Collaborations In collaboration with city and county governments, Wisconsin Technical Colleges, and other University of Wisconsin institutions, UW Colleges is increasing the numbers of degree holders throughout Wisconsin. Core Strategy 4: Stronger Communities UW Colleges campuses partner with community organizations and businesses to provide service, research, support for the arts and development assistance. 2

3 CORE STRATEGY 1 Prepare Students Ensure that students are prepared with the integrative learning skills, multicultural competencies, and practical knowledge needed to succeed in and contribute to a rapidly changing, increasingly global society. UW COLLEGES prepares students for a global society through a variety of experiences, both as part of the curriculum and outside of the classroom. Among these experiences are the high impact practices in the table below. Student participation in these activities has been shown to contribute to gains in critical thinking, one of the fundamental outcomes of learning, as well as to gains in practical skills and in personal and social development. High Impact Activities Reported on the Community College Survey of Student Engagement UW Colleges National 1 Participate in organized learning communities (linked courses led by faculty 12% 9%* or counselors) Participate in a community based project as part of a regular course 25% 23% *Significant difference from the UW Colleges percentage at the 0.05 level 1 Other community colleges nationally Source: 2011 Community College Survey of Student Engagement Additional UW Colleges Indicators Since 1998 students seeking a UW Colleges Associate of Arts and Science Degree have been required to complete a minimum of three credits of Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) and three credits of Ethnic Studies (ES). IS courses introduce students to integrative learning skills through the combination of multiple disciplines into a single course. Students explore the multiple dimensions of a subject, applying knowledge in new ways. ES courses show the importance of diversity issues and cultural differences in understanding world problems. Interdisciplinary Course Offerings Term Classes Offered Disciplines Included Fall Fall Fall Fall Fall Additional UW Colleges Indicators When measuring the quality of preparation, an important measure to consider is the greater amount of success students experience by remaining in UW Colleges longer before transferring. From fall 2007 to 2011, students had higher second year retention rates in the UW System if they completed two full years with UW Colleges before transferring to other UW System institutions. Additionally, UW Colleges students had the highest retention rates compared to students from any other transfer source.

UW Colleges students participate in a wide range of study abroad opportunities without having to wait until their junior or senior years. In the past five years students have traveled around the world earning college credits in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences. The participation of community members on these study abroad trips helps students see the real world applications of their experiences and how their knowledge of the world will help them succeed.

The fully accredited UW Flexible Option is competency-based and selfpaced. In place of semesters, students enroll and pay for threemonth blocks of time, during which they demonstrate mastery of as many competencies as they wish. Credit is granted through assessment of knowledge acquired through any means, including work experience and prior education. Students do not attend classes, and all assessments are completed online in a proctored environment. Students are assigned Academic Success Coaches who serve as advisors, mentors, and advocates. Students who complete the UW Flexible Option A.A.S. will be considered to have met the university-wide general education requirements at all other University of Wisconsin institutions. Achieving an Associate degree is an important milestone, whether students plan to enter the workforce or continue their education. Associate degrees conferred at UW Colleges in totaled 1,719, slightly less than the More Graduates plan of 1,742, but 377 higher than in

5 CORE STRATEGY 2 Stronger Workforce Closing the Equity gap Reduce the Equity Gap by half by 2015 among underrepresented minorities, lower income students, and for all races/ethnicities. Retention and Graduation Rates Each UW institution has the goal of raising retention and graduation rates for all students, and closing the Equity Gap among underrepresented minorities (URM) and lower income students. Improving the success rate of all student groups is important to the plans of the More Graduates initiative.

6 CORE STRATEGY 3 Stronger Businesses Increase the creation of well-paying jobs by expanding the university research enterprise while linking academic programs to entrepreneurship and business development. Part of UW Colleges s mission is to create new knowledge and prepare students to use that knowledge in the workforce. Research leads to the development of new industries and creates well-paying jobs in Wisconsin. Federal and privately funded research expenditures at UW Colleges were $107,000 in fiscal year 2013 (FY13), up from $69,000 five years ago. Degrees that lead to well-paying jobs or greater business development are crucial for strengthening businesses in Wisconsin. Of the students who began at the UW Colleges then completed bachelor s degrees at other UW institutions in (more than 2,600), half graduated with majors in business, health sciences, or in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Using money from a National Science Foundation grant, a particular effort has been made to increase the numbers of transfers majoring in the STEM fields. UW Baccalaureate Degrees Awarded to UW Colleges Transfers Business 16% 18% 18% 16% 18% Health Sciences 10% 9% 10% 11% 10% STEM 19% 18% 19% 20% 22% All Others 55% 55% 53% 53% 50% Additional UW Colleges Indicators Since 2001 UW Colleges and UW-Platteville have offered a collaborative degree program in engineering. This program has allowed students at the UW Colleges to complete a bachelor s degree in engineering, taking all of their classes either online or at the two-year campus. The counties that own the UW Colleges campuses understand the benefits of having this program and have made significant investments. For example, Outagamie and Winnebago counties have invested $3.2 million for acquisition of property, a new building, and remodeling of existing spaces in order to bring an engineering campus to UW-Fox Valley. Washington County and the City of West Bend have jointly invested $3.5 million to remodel a portion of an existing science building to include engineering laboratories and specialized classrooms. Students understand the benefits as well. Since the collaboration began in 2001, enrollments in freshman and sophomore level engineering courses have increased 600%. Growth in Engineering Enrollments Year Students Enrolled Credits , , ,808 Transfer to a four-year college or university is a goal of most UW Colleges students (94% indicate this as a primary or secondary goal). At the same time many students enroll to enhance career options and add value to the businesses and organizations that hire them. Since 2005 nearly a third of UW Colleges students completing the Community College Survey of Student Engagement have identified changing careers as either a primary or secondary goal, while the numbers of students seeking to obtain or update job skills has grown to nearly two-thirds of students. Career-Related Educational Goals Educational Goals Change Careers Primary Goal 16% 18% 16% Secondary Goal 16% 15% 15% Obtain or update job Primary Goal 26% 28% 30% related skills Secondary Goal 29% 30% 35% The UW Colleges Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) Degree Completion Program prepares students for professional careers with a focus on communication skills, critical-thinking, problem-solving, and the ability to understand global issues and work across cultures. The program consists of global studies and cognitive skills courses, along with internships, service-learning, and a senior capstone project. These experiential learning opportunities will allow students to gain valuable real world experience while strengthening relationships between the university and community. By offering the BAAS degree, the UW Colleges will increase the number of graduates in Wisconsin and strengthen the quality of the workforce in the communities they serve. 6

7 CORE STRATEGY 4 Stronger Communities In partnership with communities, address Wisconsin s greatest challenges and priorities through intensified engagement, research, and learning. UW Colleges has a positive impact on communities both by cultivating civic participation in students and through a variety of engagement efforts developed in partnership with communities. Encouraging students civic participation yields immediate benefits to communities while students are enrolled and builds a foundation for lifelong civic involvement of graduates. Civic Participation by Students UW Colleges National 1 Contributing to community welfare 25% 29%* Community-based course project 19% 7%* *Significant differences from the UW Colleges percentage at the 0.05 level 1 Other community colleges nationally Source: 2011 National Survey of Student Engagement UW Colleges campuses strengthen their host communities by providing non-credit continuing education to community members. In fiscal year 2013, non-credit continuing education course enrollments increased 1% to 25,723 from 25,481 in The number of programs and total program enrollments by campus are shown in the chart below. UW Colleges Non-Credit Continuing Education Programming Campus Programs Enrollments Baraboo/Sauk County 101 1,541 Barron County Fond du Lac 60 1,483 Fox Valley Manitowoc Marathon County 145 2,743 Marinette 19 3,532 Marshfield/Wood County 210 4,732 Richland 39 1,345 Rock County 70 1,159 Sheboygan Washington County 69 3,120 Waukesha 352 2,792 Totals 1,407 25,723 Additional UW Colleges Indicators Campuses, in partnership with community organizations and local businesses, provide service, research, support for the arts, and development assistance. These partnerships lead to the expansion of opportunity and the creation of new jobs. In 2012, over 300 businesses and organizations in over 100 cities and towns across the state benefitted from the skills and expertise of UW Colleges faculty, staff and students. Founded in 2007 on the UW-Marathon County campus, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service (WIPPS) enhances community life throughout Wisconsin by linking scholarship, outreach and service, to local, state and national public policy issues. WIPPS strengthens communities through five major initiatives: Major WIPPS Initiatives Focused on Communities Serves as a center for public conversation in Wisconsin and the Midwest concerning immigration, health care, economic security, and education policy. Alongside the local Government Center of UW-Extension, offers training for citizens and public officials in using dialogue and deliberation to address complex community issues. Offers a fellowship program that includes UW System faculty and public scholars. In 2013, WIPPS Fellows addressed health care policy, frac sand mining, overcoming political partisanship, and retaining young professional talent in Wisconsin. Engages in public policy education and scholarship alongside state and national experts, with two statewide conferences on the impact of the Affordable Care Act in Wisconsin. Collaborates with UW Colleges faculty in survey research, including a high school student civic participation survey and a survey for the Workforce Development Board on the impact of job retraining on displaced paper mill workers in Port Edwards. Provides a public lecture series featuring state and national experts which discuss key public policy issues, such as the intersection of religion and politics, crime and punishment, job creation, and economic development. The 13 UW Colleges campuses provide access to dual enrollment programs across the state and in a variety of formats. Dual enrollment refers to high school students enrolling in college courses and receiving both college and high school credit. Participation in these courses has been shown to better prepare students for the transition from high school to college. Courses challenge students while providing a better understanding of college expectations. Students later enter college with course credits, and save money with reduced or free tuition for courses offered in high school classrooms. Communities are strengthened through collaborative relationships between high school and university faculty. 7

8 CORE STRATEGY 5 Resources Balance, diversify, and grow the university s financial resources and facilities while developing its human talent. The resources of people, money, and facilities are what enable UW Colleges to fulfill its mission to students and the people of Wisconsin. Diversity of faculty and staff is an indicator of UW Colleges efforts to develop its human resources. Faculty and staff diversity provides richer exchanges of ideas in the classroom, broader lines of inquiry in research, and a more welcoming climate for students from underrepresented groups. In fall 2013, 6.9% of UW Colleges faculty and staff were people of color, or 84 out of 1,216.

Classified Total African American American Indian Asian American Hispanic/Latino(a) Two or More Races UW Colleges relies on revenue from a variety of sources to fulfill its mission. Revenue from all sources increased from $95 million in fiscal year 2008 (FY08) to $112 million in FY13. Revenue from gifts, grants, and contracts increased from 13% of total revenue in FY08 to 21% in FY13. In fiscal year 2013, the UW Colleges devoted nearly $500,000 to professional development of faculty and staff. With a focus on teaching and learning, over $200,000 was used to support activities designed to improve student engagement. Professional Development Spending Year Total Professional Grants to Improve Student Development Spending Engagement 2009 $412,000 $221, $427,000 $187, $559,000 $249, $527,000 $244, $478,000 $201,000 Additional UW Colleges Indicators UW Colleges faculty and staff supplement state funding with grants received from external providers. Centralized grant application support is provided to all 13 campuses and 17 academic departments. Assistance is also provided to faculty and staff seeking UW System grants. In fiscal 2013, total grant funding from external sources (federal, state and private foundation) was over $1.6 million, excluding financial aid and UW System grants External Grant Funding Federal State Private # $ $1,617,466 $40,080 $114,750 % 91% 2% 7% # $ $3,309,272 $21,408 $252,875 % 92% 1% 7% # $ $2,805,123 $390,638 $313,273 % 80% 11% 9% # $ $1,379,624 $14,910 $310,216 % 81% 1% 18% # $ $1,272,983 $10,500 $323,601 % 79% 1% 20% The UW Colleges Virtual Teaching and Learning Center (VTLC) helps faculty and staff develop teaching excellence that enhances student learning. Launched in February 2011 as an online resource, the VTLC brings teaching resources and consultation to faculty and staff at all UW Colleges campuses and UWC Online. An excellent resource for both new and experienced instructors, use of the VTLC continues to grow as more programming is offered. Visitors to the site increased 77% from 2,364 in to 4,185 in In addition to providing online resources, programming, and workshops, the Center also distributes small grants for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning projects that explore how effective teaching can improve learning, particularly for concepts or topics that are difficult for students. The reports from these projects later appear as resources for other instructors. The director and the advisory board continue to use feedback on the resources available to design and implement additional curriculum and programming. 8

9 CORE STRATEGY 6 Operational Excellence Advance operational excellence by becoming more flexible, responsive, and cost efficient. UW System indicators related to operational excellence do not apply to the UW Colleges. UW Colleges Indicators UW Colleges provides flexible, responsive and cost efficient access to higher education through a fully accredited online program. Students taking courses online can complete an Associate of Arts and Science Degree and/or the first two years of a Bachelor s Degree without ever traveling to a campus. The UW Colleges Online Program is funded through tuition and fees without additional support from state revenue. Begun in 1999, the program has grown from 33 students to over 1,700 in fall Approximately 90% of students live in Wisconsin and 70% are 22 or older. UW Colleges Online Growth Fall 2009-Fall 2013 Term Class Sections Offered Total Enrollment Fall ,215 Fall ,339 Fall ,456 Fall ,546 Fall ,772 The number of credits attempted by Associate of Arts and Science Degree recipients is a measure of both institutional efficiency and efficient student enrollment patterns. Keeping this number as close as possible to the minimum 60 credits required for the AAS is particularly challenging when students need to take developmental math or English courses since those credits do not count toward fulfilling the AAS degree requirements. The chart below shows the average number of credits attempted by AAS degree recipients over the past five years. It also includes the percent of those degree recipients who had to take one or more developmental English or math courses on the way toward receiving that degree. The chart indicates a consistent average credits to degree in spite of an ever increasing number of students needing developmental course work. Providing classes delivered through alternative means of instruction allow the 13 campuses of the UW Colleges to respond to the academic needs of all students in a cost efficient manner. Through the use of distance media and blended instruction (face-to-face with online), the UW Colleges offered the equivalent of 467 additional course sections in Most of these classes could not have been offered using traditional face-to-face instruction, either because of low enrollments at any one campus or because of a lack of instructional staff for a particular course. Growth in Alternative Modes of Instruction Year Equivalent Class Sections Total Enrollment , , , , ,407 UW Colleges campuses continue to invest in improved heating, electrical and water systems in an effort to conserve gas and electricity. Using the common measurement of British Thermal Units per gross square foot of space for both heating and electrical use, UW Colleges campuses have achieved efficiencies of 25% in heating and 12% in electrical use between fiscal 2003 and The improved efficiency in electrical use is particularly noteworthy given the expanded use of electrical systems to manage buildings and to supplement teaching and learning.

10 CORE STRATEGY 7 Collaborations Further leverage UW System s strengths and impact through collaborations among the campuses and with other Wisconsin partners. UW Colleges collaborations and partnerships with UW System institutions, other education sectors, businesses, community organizations, and governmental agencies allow it to have greater impact than by acting alone. UW Colleges increases student access and degree completion through collaborative bachelor s degree programs. These programs allow students to complete a bachelor s degree while attending classes at their local UW Colleges campus and online.
