1 Lake Erie College Academic Program Review for Psychology School of Arts, Humanities and Social Science I. Strategic Directions for Lake Erie College (Limit: 2 pages) [20%] LEC Mission, Institutional Characteristics and Strategic Directions In the context of a long liberal arts tradition, Lake Erie College provides distinctive undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students to meet career and life challenges as educated and responsible citizens of local, national and international communities. In order to actualize our institutional mission, we have reflected as a community and have identified six institutional characteristics which express our mission and provide us with a collective vision to direct our individual efforts: Academic Excellence Academic Dynamism Internationalism Commitment to Diversity Beneficial Interpersonal Relationships Caring Attitude These characteristics help to further define the college s commitment to Excellence, Tradition and Service. Our strategic directions as outlined in the current strategic plan include: To create and foster an intellectually supportive and safe learning-centered environment to serve students in problem-based learning that demonstrates growth. To implement continuous improvement processes that provide meaningful feedback to achieve excellence. To create real-world experiences through collaboration between students, the global community and LEC faculty, staff and alumni. To serve our diverse students, staff and community through continual identification and assessment of learning needs for the 21 st century. To continue to increase utilization of technology in the classroom and as an administrative tool designed to provide information to inform decisions. To develop a system of shared governance that provides a voice for all constituents while offering a clear framework for guiding the institution. To develop a system for effectively managing institutional resources to support strategic initiatives. Academic Excellence Psi Chi The National Honor Society in Psychology was founded for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. The college has consistently had members admitted into the national organization, attesting to the academic LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 1

2 excellence of our psychology majors. The LEC chapter of Psi Chi is celebrating its 44th year. Academic Dynamism The offering of the Forensic Psychology concentration: Forensic Psychology offers a supplemental curriculum designed to teach students the value of psychology within the context of the criminal justice system. The concentration enhances the student's ability to identify, understand, and productively interact with mentally ill individuals, intervene in crises, and understand the role of deviant behavior and mental processes and criminal behavior and the impact of such on its victims and the community. Graduates with this concentration are better qualified for careers within the criminal justice system including: police departments, law enforcement agencies, social services, case management, probation, parole and are strong applicant for graduate school programs in psychology, behavioral science, and law. Caring Attitude All psychology courses cover theory and research within the field that fosters student understanding and empathy for those who suffer from mental and behavioral disorders those who are symptomatic, their family members, significant others, community and the impact on the public at large. In review, the Psychology curriculum provides outstanding support for the mission and strategic directions of Lake Erie College. To create and foster an intellectually supportive and safe learning-centered environment to serve students in problem-based learning that demonstrates growth and To implement continuous improvement processes that provide meaningful feedback to achieve excellence. Drafts of student literature reviews in PS325 - Research Methods are submitted to "Turnitin" and evaluated for originality. Students are made aware that the analyses are not intended to catch them in acts of plagiarism and that the results of the Turnitin analysis will not have any negative impact on their grades. Instead, the results of those analyses are provided to each student and discussed with the instructor as a learning opportunity to better understand the nature of plagiarism, the value of academic honesty, and how to paraphrase another s work while giving proper credit. To continue to increase utilization of technology in the classroom and as an administrative tool designed to provide information to inform decisions. In concert with faculty in IMDAT and Education, the use of Apple ipads and "apps" are being introduced into the classroom. For example, Dr. Siegel is currently conducting a pilot study using realtime reporting of student responses to lecture questions. Pre-loaded questions are presented on screen to the class and s are sent to the students via their smartphones. Students reply to the with a numbered code corresponding to the alternative answers provided in the questions. The real-time frequency of each alternative is shown on the screen as students submit their answers. That provides the instructor immediate feedback regarding how well the students understood the lecture material. The results of that pilot study will be shared and Professor Gutierrez and Dr. Yachanin will introduce LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 2

3 that technique in some of their Spring 2012 courses. Students regularly participate in online discussion via Lake Erie Online discussion groups created for specific classes. Students engage in survey research with surveymonkey an online software program that allows students to create surveys, distribute them via online means and data analysis provided by the software. Field Research students use an audio recording device with accompanying software, which facilitates interview recordings to be saved, and edited allowing efficient data analysis. II.

Internal demand for the degree program and courses in the degree program There has been consistent growth in the overall number of psychology majors. The notable increases during the and academic years was likely due to the hiring of a third full-time faculty member in the Psychology Department in 2006 (although her time is split between Psychology and Criminal Justice). A large majority of our psychology majors selects the B.A. option. That is likely because most of our majors are interested in pursuing clinical and counseling careers and the B.S. option does not provide any advantage regarding acceptance into graduate school. Additionally, the B.S. option reduces the number of psychology electives the student can take because of the additional science courses (e.g., biology, chemistry) required of the B.S option. It is our experience that the additional psychology LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 4

5 electives provide, overall, a better preparation for graduate school, except when a student is applying to a physiological/neuroscience area in graduate school. There has also been a consistent increase in the number of Forensic Psychology concentrations. The number of phone inquiries received by Dr. Eisenberg during the past year suggests continued and increased interest in Forensic Psychology by prospective students. Without a full-time replacement of the Psychology Department s lost position, however, those potential students may be lost to the college and that unique program will likely be lost as well. Our PS101 General Psychology course is one of the options that satisfy the Social Science General Education Goal. Consequently, it is a very popular option for students throughout the college regardless of their major, as indicated by the high FTE s. In addition, several majors (e.g., Biology, Criminal Justice, Education, and Equestrian Studies) require the General Psychology course. We offer three sections of General Psychology each semester and they are typically filled and have a waiting list. Other psychology courses (e.g., Statistics, Abnormal Psychology, and Personality) are also required for a variety of majors/concentrations as indicated in the table presented above. B. External demand for graduates from the program The outlook for those trained in Psychology is quite positive. Ohio Labor Market Information projects a 23.6% employment change for for Mental Health Counselors in Ohio (http://ohiolmi.com/proj/projections/ohio/buckeye50.pdf). The Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos056.htm) provides a few examples of projections of overall national trends for They project 11% growth for clinical, counseling, and school psychology, 26% growth for industrial psychology, and 14% growth for all other psychology areas. Growth projections, however, vary considerably depending on the nature of the work. For example, while the overall growth projection for clinical psychologists is 11%, the clinical psychologist growth in the Health Care and Social Assistance area is projected to be 29%! In review, enrollment in the Psychology program is high relative to other Lake Erie College programs and, there is evidence that the demand continues to grow. The Psychology program shows obvious evidence that it includes coursework that other programs depend upon, including general requirements. The external demand for psychology graduates demonstrates a trend that supports continued increase. The psychology program with the forensic concentration, internship support, research, caring support and graduate school and job placement identify it as an unique program central to recruitment of new students.

6 III. Program Quality (Limit: 6 pages, not including tables) [35%] A. Students 1. For Undergraduate programs The psychology program offers students a solid foundation in the major disciplines of psychology through its core of required courses: Psychology of Personality, Abnormal Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Research Methods, Statistics, and Psychology Research Seminar (the senior capstone course). That foundation is supplemented by the addition of a considerable variety of elective courses in psychology, allowing students to pursue more specialized interests (e.g., Clinical Psychology, Personality Assessment, Social Psychology, Human Sexuality). It is not unusual for our students to take many more courses than the minimum required number of electives, illustrating their interest, excitement, and curiosity to learn more about behavior and mental processes. Our Forensic Psychology concentration was introduced 5 years ago in Fall Its interdisciplinary approach, working closely with the Criminal Justice program and the local judicial system, offers a rather unique opportunity for students to apply psychological principles to questions and issues related to the law and the legal system. Internships in psychology are available to those interested in experiencing real-world application of classroom theory. While it is not a requirement for the major, most of our students eagerly enroll in an internship. Evaluations from on-site supervisors are consistently high and compliment our interns on their sense of professionalism, dedication, hard work, initiative, and academic preparation. While no systematic records are maintained, a good number of our interns have been offered positions with the organization sponsoring the internship following graduation. Psychology majors are exceptional when it comes to achievement. All majors develop and conduct two original research projects and then present the papers to their peers in a conference-type setting. The work is difficult and challenging, yet the quality of the projects, given the considerable time restrictions, is very high. Students are remarkably creative, professional, and thorough in the conduct of their research, and have an excellent grasp of the nature of ethics involved when testing human subjects (of the more than 20 research proposals submitted to the Institutional Review Board since it was established last year, only 1 proposal has been returned for revision for a liability issue, not an ethical issue). The acceptance rate of our psychology majors into graduate programs is 96%; it is 100% if only the last 5 years are considered. This is exceptional by any standard and more so for a program of our size and attests to the quality of the program and our students achievement. Two students presented original research at the 2011 Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges Undergraduate Research Symposium at the Ohio Statehouse. No systematic collection of data regarding employment is available. LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 6

7 B. Faculty 1. Provide evidence of teaching effectiveness Evidence presented as bullet points: Professors consistently receive high marks from student evaluations. Material is introduced in real-life context. Professors regularly update lectures with new research findings, relevant examples and evolved theory. Incorporate current events when possible and relevant to class. Develop and incorporate technology into class (e.g. PowerPoint, on-line data analysis, audio and video clips, etc) Return tests and homework assignments, with comments, at next class meeting. Meet students individually when required or requested. Our department has had two recipients of the Excellence in Teaching Award. Consistently maintain a full time course overload with full enrollment and waiting lists. Create hands on experiential exercises illustrating concepts. Arrange field experience opportunities, including Municipal Court, Juvenile Court, Forbes House, Caley Treatment Center, Neighboring Mental Health, Crossroads Behavioral and Mental Health Facility. Sponsor and supervise internships each semester, students placed at sites within the behavioral and mental health field. 2. Scholarship/Creative Activities/Service At least one peer-reviewed publication or creative product 1/3 1/3 1/3 1/3 At least one funded grant or contract related to scholarship 0/0 1/3 1/3 1/3 Invited participant or leader of workshops, expert panels, or task 3/3 3/3 3/3 3/3 forces At least one presentation (paper, poster, exhibition, etc.) given at a 2/3 2/3 2/3 2/3 professional society meeting Professional service activities at a regional or national level 2/3 2/3 2/3 2/3 Service on at least one college committee (at least 1 hour/wk avg.) 3/3 3/3 3/3 3/3 3. Provide explanations of the data above and/or descriptions of the patterns of faculty engagement in scholarly and/or creative activities and service as appropriate for your program. Dr. Yachanin engages in scholarship in a variety of ways. He has published or presented 13 papers in national and international venues, is currently drafting an outline for a statistics primer, supervises approximately original student research studies each year, and remains current in the field through professional journals and books. In addition, he has acted as a statistical consultant and researcher for local business as well as for the military, wrote the last two comprehensive NCA self- LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 7

8 studies, served as Director of Institutional Assessment, developed an institution-wide assessment plan, created the first web site used by an LEC faculty member, and was the first LEC faculty member to create Professional Development workshops in the use of technology in the classroom (four in all). Creative activities include the composition of a symphonic work, contemporary songs and Christmas carols (performed by two different choirs), a published poem, and a published magical illusion. While not directly related to psychology, those activities are introduced into class lectures as illustrations of psychological principles and of the value of a liberal arts education. In addition, Dr. Yachanin has served on a standing committee for the last 29 years (as Chair for many of those), served on numerous ad hoc committees and search committees, served as the (pseudo) President of the Faculty Senate, served as the faculty advisor for the Psychology Club and for Psi Chi for 27 years, and previously served as a College Marshal for 25 years. Dr. Culotta has served on Academic Standards for 3 years. Served on AQIP. Is currently Faculty Senate secretary and serves the Executive Faculty Senate Dr. Culotta has served as Director of the Lake Erie College Scholars Program for the past 3 years (including current). Is currently serving as the faculty advisor for the Psychology Club and the club Students Making a Difference. Dr. Culotta has engaged in the following scholarship activities: June 17 th, Ashtabula, Ohio Presentation for 100 people entitled: Professional Ethics. Presented to mental health and educators for continuing for continuing educational credits, sponsored by the Ashtabula County Mental Health and Recovery Services board. March 8 th, Mentor, Ohio Presentation for 50 people entitled: Ethics for the Mental Health Professional. Presented to mental health providers and educators for continuing educational credits sponsored by the Lake-Geauga Educational Ensemble and Training Committee. February 16 th, Ohio Government State House, Columbus, Ohio. Faculty Sponsor and Advisor for two student research presentations for The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (OFIC)Undergraduate Research Symposium. September 24, Ashtabula, Ohio Paper presentation: Empowering Youth through Volunteerism at the conference: Family and Self, Class and Society; a Conference on Social Justice November 13, Washington and Jefferson College (Pennsylvania). Presented a seminar on the topic of Forensic Psychology and mitigation for criminal defendants. The audience was comprised of W&J students and faculty interested in the topic. The large increases in enrollment during the past several years have dramatically increased the diversity of student preparedness and academic ability. That necessitates increased time and effort devoted to addressing that diversity on a daily basis and reduces further the little time available for scholarly activity. Furthermore, the college does not provide the necessary resources (e.g., experimental labs, research teaching load reductions, statistical software programs, etc). Additionally, the items listed in LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 8

9 the above table have no relationship with effective teaching and teaching is our primary responsibility. Research in psychology takes considerable time which would take away from teaching activities and, thereby, have a negative impact on the education that has resulted in the remarkable 96% graduate school acceptance rate for our Psychology majors. 4. Provide evidence for faculty mentoring of students. Include, for example, approaches to advising, directed study or research, and/or clubs or student professional chapters that involve faculty mentorship. All Psychology majors are required to develop and conduct two original research projects. Those projects are developed and conducted under the supervision of the Psychology faculty. In every case, several individual student meetings are held to discuss the development and progress of each student s project. Informal discussions are held regarding the process of applying to graduate school, sometimes on an individual basis and sometimes in small groups. The prospect of graduate school is raised with each advisee, usually during his or her junior year. Advisees are met each semester, typically during advising weeks. The Psychology faculty takes the approach of suggesting a balanced schedule, including (mostly) general education courses and at least one major-related course each semester during the first two years. The next two years switch to an emphasis on requirements for the major and selection of electives to fill out the advisee s schedule. That approach ensures his advisees will have the benefit of the general education courses early in their academic careers and serve them throughout the remainder of their instruction. It also ensures progress toward degree completion and fulfillment of the requirements for their major. The Psychology Club was established 27 years ago as an alternative to the college s Psi Chi chapter for students who had an interest in Psychology. It has had a history with considerable ups and downs, depending on the interest, initiative, and energy of its student membership. Over the course of its existence, the Psychology Club has engaged in raising money for a variety of psychology-related charities, collected food for the local food bank, sponsored movies, a magic show, guest speakers, and field trips to local college psychology departments. 5. Provide other evidence of quality indicators related to faculty that may not be listed elsewhere, including, for example, faculty diversity within the program. There are equal numbers of male and female full-time faculty in the Psychology Department, providing a balanced gender view. One faculty member has extensive training in the area of Clinical Psychology. This faculty member has experience and training in the areas of behavioral and mental health related to children, adolescents and families, concentrating on child abuse, neglect and juvenile delinquency. The expertise includes assessment, treatment and work within residential and criminal justice programming. The other faculty member has extensive training in the area of Experimental Psychology with expertise in general cognitive processes, memory, logical and heuristic reasoning, problem solving, decision making, LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 9

10 learning, human sexuality, and research design and statistics. That distribution provides students a sound foundation in several major areas of psychology. Students within the psychology department demonstrate participation in many related scholarship and service activities. The psychology faculty have demonstrated ongoing professional development and activity enhancing their teaching effectiveness and service to the community. The psychology faculty have established and maintained unique and dynamic relationships with affiliate agencies/units that enhance the learning opportunities, internship experiences and post graduate job placement, career options and graduate school placement. C. Curriculum 1. Writing and oral communication learning outcomes Each student prepares two research manuscripts in APA writing style and orally presents each paper to their peers in a conference-like setting. In addition, students are required to write term papers in each psychology class (with the exception of the introductory course). Those papers are presented orally in some of the courses, in poster session is some, and as practical project application for others. 2. Assessment Assessment of the literature reviews from student research manuscripts indicated students had difficulty making connections between the research articles they were reading and their own projects. Additional class time and individual meeting time was devoted to addressing that topic. Assessment of the last senior seminar (PS400 Psychology Research Seminar) research manuscripts indicated a marked improvement compared with previous student manuscripts. Assessment of student s performance on exams requiring essay response indicated: Difficulty with the application of concepts using critical thinking or application of the material in a manner that demonstrated analytical understanding and problem solving, as opposed to rote memorization and rehearsal of definitions and descriptions. Assessment using essay exam question eliciting responses after in class discussion and experiential work resulted in marked improvement of critical thinking, analytical skill and practical application of material. Not applicable. 3. Accreditation (if applicable) 4. Relevance and Innovation The establishment of a Forensic Psychology concentration is both innovative and forward-looking. This program is relatively unique and one of only 6 undergraduate institutions in the State of Ohio purported as offering a degree or concentration in this subfield of psychology. This unique program that prepares individuals to apply clinical, counseling, school, and neuropsychology skills to the provision of LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 10

11 psychological services within the criminal justice and civil legal systems, including consultation, assessment, and interventions. Require and provide elective courses that cover the clinical area, which is a growing area according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Students have the opportunity to explore the general field of clinical work including assessment, intervention, treatment, research, need assessment, policy development, and program planning relevant to the field of behavioral and mental health. Students can take coursework that develops insight, understanding and skills of assessment and intervention regarding behavior and mental health needs of adults, children, adolescents, families, special need groups. Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. A solid foundation in understanding what makes people tick becomes increasingly relevant as the world becomes more interdependent, global, and even virtual. The curriculum provided to our students in psychology allows them to approach all areas of human activity and people with the knowledge and tools necessary to understand and function within that diverse, global context. 5. Interactions between graduate and undergraduate programs (if applicable) The psychology department has a long and strong relationship with the clinical counseling master s degree program at John Carroll University as well as the Doctoral Programs of Clinical Counseling and Counseling Psychology at Cleveland State University. Several graduates from Lake Erie College have and are pursuing graduate education as these institutions. 6. Program uniqueness The Forensic Psychology concentration, as stated previously, provides a unique opportunity for psychology majors. This program is one of only 6 undergraduate institutions in the State of Ohio purported as offering a degree or concentration in this subfield of psychology. This unique program prepares individuals to apply clinical, counseling, school, and neuropsychology skills to the provision of psychological services within the criminal justice and civil legal systems, including consultation, assessment, and interventions. The psychology program requires that each student develop, conduct, and present two original research projects. Most other undergraduate programs require only one project, in many cases developed and conducted as a group. The experience provided with two projects places our students at a distinct advantage when they enter graduate school. Former students have, on several occasions, commented that they were sought out by their graduate classmates to help because our students were seen as knowing how to do research. 7. Opportunities for undergraduate scholarship/creative activities/service One-hundred percent of Psychology majors participate in original research. Internships- 75% of psychology students participate in the internship program. LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 11

12 Psychology majors who excel in various classes are sometimes recommended as tutors for subsequent students who experience academic difficulties in those classes and serve at the Student Success Center. The Psychology Club- 15% of psychology students actively participate. D. Affiliations/Equipment/Facilities/Environment 1. Affiliations The program has ongoing relationships with: Local Criminal Justice Facilities, institutions and organizations including: Mentor, Willoughby and Painesville Municipal Courts, Lake County Court of Common Pleas, Mentor Drug Court, Municipal mental health court, Lake County Juvenile Court, all Lake County Police Departments, Lake County Sheriff Department, Lake County Forensic Center. These institutions manage different and cooperating aspects of the criminal justice system including, investigation, assessment, prevention, intervention, treatment, behavioral management, public safety, punishment, consultation and legal services of defense, prosecution and judicial decision-making. Students have opportunities of guest speakers, field experience, internship, research and job placement within the aforementioned institutions based on the ongoing relationship with the faculty of the psychology department. Community Mental and Behavioral Health Centers including: Crossroads, Signature health, Forbes House, Caley Receiving home, Lake County Department of Job and Family Services, Neighboring mental health services, Pathways case management services, Bellfaire and Beechbrook. Students have opportunities of guest speakers, field experience, internship, research and job placement within the aforementioned institutions based on the ongoing relationship with the faculty of the psychology department. 2. Facilities and resources The most important information/library resources available are the PsychINFO and PsycARTICLES searchable databases and the Psychology book collection. The department has no facilities (e.g., research lab space, meeting space), no viable statistical software program, nor does it have access to Ohio Link. Current facilities and resources place considerable restrictions on what psychology majors and faculty can accomplish. For example, students resort to using vacant classrooms, the library, or other noncontrolled environments to test subjects for their research. They often travel to Cleveland State University to obtain the full-text of research articles because interlibrary loan cannot provide the articles in the time-frame students have available to conduct their research. Students must use a very limited, on-line statistics program provided by Vassar College. In addition, many classroom demonstrations are not possible because there is no environmentally controlled lab in which to present the demonstrations.

13 3. Unique local and regional environment n/a IV. Potential (Please complete this section for each option. Limit: 2 pages per option) [20%] A. Program Capacity with Existing Resources 1. What is your program's maximum capacity with current resources? Use two metrics to define capacity : The number of graduates per year, and the number of FTES generated by courses that are unique to this option, per year. The psychology major is at maximum capacity with its current resources. Graduates per Year FTEs in the Major Option Per Year Existing Most recent 3 year average BA BS Maximum Capacity w/existing Resources If your program is at maximum capacity, proceed to Part B. If you have capacity to grow with existing resources, what steps have been taken to increase enrollment? What have been the effects of these steps, and what results are still anticipated? B. Opportunities for Future Growth or Substantial Curricular Changes 1. One area that has never been part of the psychology program s curriculum is Industrial Psychology. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 26% growth for that area for (http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos056.htm). 2. What opportunity does the program have for future expansion? Provide evidence for your response. A new full-time faculty member with expertise in Industrial Psychology would be necessary to establish a concentration in that discipline. If, however, that new faculty member had a background in organizational behavior as well, he or she could supplement the Human Resource Management major. C. Impact of Augmented Resources Suppose that your program were ranked in a category that recommended augmentation of resources. What would be the impact of augmented resources? (Answer for a 10% augmentation and a 20% augmentation.) Data unavailable for analysis LEC Academic Program Review Individual Program Report Page 13

14 D. Impact of Reduced Resources Suppose that your program were ranked in a category that recommended reduction of resources. What would be the impact of reduced resources? (Answer for a 10% reduction and a 20% reduction.) Data unavailable for analysis E. Impact of Program Elimination Suppose that your program were recommended to be discontinued. What would be the impact of program elimination? The Psychology major has always been, and will continue to be, a highly popular major at liberal arts colleges. Prospective students would likely view an institution without psychology as a choice as a second-rate institution. In addition, elimination of the Psychology program would result in the loss of one of the college s most effective programs for preparing its students for acceptance into graduate school a 96% acceptance rate. It would also have a negative impact on eight other college programs: Criminal Justice, Biology (Pre OT, PT & Nursing Concentrations), Middle Child Education, AYA Education, EQ Teacher/Trainer, EQ Therapeutic Horsemanship concentration, Political Science, and Social Science. The 52 current psychology majors would likely transfer to an institution to finish their psychology major. V. Additional Information (Limit: 1 page) [up to 5 extra credit points may be assigned to the overall score] Provide crucial information that is not provided under the previous categories. The Psychology major is designed in the true spirit of a liberal arts education. With one of the lowest minimum semester credit hour requirements to complete the major (44 semester hours), it allows its majors considerable opportunity to explore other areas of study outside psychology. Nevertheless, our students are provided an excellent foundation in psychology, a variety of psychology electives, and a competitive edge for acceptance into graduate school.
