1 SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE PROSPECTUS Boyce College Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (P-5) Bachelor of Science in Integrated Music Education (P-12) Abstract Boyce College proposes the addition of the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (P-5) and the Bachelor of Science in Integrated Music Education (P-12) beginning in fall It is anticipated that these ongoing programs will have an initial enrollment of 15 students with a five year projection of 100 students. These programs are aimed at those students called to the vocational ministry of teaching and who will serve in a variety of contexts in which professional educator training is a necessary prerequisite for employment. These programs will be offered under the oversight of the Teacher Education Program. Background Information The mission of the Teacher Education Program is an extension of the mission of Boyce College, the undergraduate school of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and therefore functions under the mission statement of Southern Seminary. Under the lordship of Jesus Christ, the mission of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is to be totally committed to the Bible as the Word of God, to the Great Commission as our mandate, and to be a servant of the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention by training, educating, and preparing ministers of the gospel for more faithful service. Within the mission of Southern Seminary, the purpose of Boyce College is to conduct undergraduate programs in biblical studies to prepare students for the task of Great Commission ministry in local churches, as well as in the agencies and institutions of the Southern Baptist Convention. As such, the Boyce Teacher Education Program is founded on the philosophy of a Christian worldview which interprets personal, social, and historical events through biblical tenets, and which is committed to the principles of Christian teaching in personal, professional, and social relationships. The primary purpose of the Boyce Teacher Education Program is to provide Christcentered quality teacher education, preparing teacher candidates for both public and Christian school teaching. Instruction in general education in both theological and ministry studies, as well as content knowledge in the arts and sciences, and finally in professional teacher education (knowledge, dispositions, and pedagogy) is provided to all teacher candidates to equip them for professional, and Christian leadership and service in a world of diversity. In conjunction with the general Mission of the entire college, the teacher education program strives to achieve the following specific goals: Equip and train teachers for carrying out the Great Commission of our Lord (Matthew 28:18-20). 1

2 Instill teachers with a knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices of American education. Impart knowledge of and appreciation for other cultures. Impart knowledge in both the arts and sciences and biblical studies. Integrate the appropriate academic disciplines into a meaningful and coherent Christian worldview. Provide leadership and service opportunities for teacher candidates in the P-12 schools and/or community. Foster competency in the dispositions of the Boyce professional Teacher Education Program. The programs will be offered at the campus of Boyce College in Louisville, KY. On October 1, 2008, the faculty of Boyce College approved the creation of the Elementary Education (P-5) and Integrated Music Education (P-12) programs and curriculum. Meeting minutes are found in Appendix A. On November 24, 2008, Boyce College formally declared its intention to establish an educator preparation program with the Kentucky Educational Professional Standards Board. A copy of this declaration including the authorization from all institutional authorities is included in Appendix B. On March 2, 2009, The Kentucky Educational Professional Standards Board voted unanimously to grant Stage I approval to Boyce College for the Elementary Education (P-5) and Integrated Music Education (P-12) programs. Meeting minutes are included in Appendix C. On April 7, 2009, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education amended the license of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary to include the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (P-5) and the Bachelor of Science in Integrated Music Education (P-12) degrees (Appendix D). Assessment of Need and Program Planning / Approval Since its organization in 1845 in Augusta, Georgia, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has grown to over 16 million members who worship in more than 42,000 churches in the United States. Southern Baptists sponsor about 5,000 home missionaries serving the United States, Canada, Guam and the Caribbean, as well as sponsoring more than 5,000 foreign missionaries in 153 nations of the world. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College serve the churches of the SBC by preparing students for ministry. Beginning in 2007, the college administration became aware of a growing need among the churches of the SBC and many affiliated Christian schools, for skilled, certified teachers who could lead students from a biblically informed Christian worldview. Additionally, the mission agencies of the SBC have indicated an ongoing need for teachers to serve the needs of students abroad. These requests, combined with the ongoing demand for public school teachers across the United States, led the college to explore the possibility of training ministers whose primary field of service is the classroom. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., the President of the seminary and the college, has indicated his support for the programs, as have the trustees of the institution, the seminary s Academic 2

3 Administration, and the faculty of the college (See Appendix B). The faculty members of Boyce College were involved in the planning and approval of the programs (Appendix A). Students entering the Teacher Educator Program to complete the Elementary Education (P-5) and Integrated Music Education (P-12) programs will be expected to meet additional requirements for admission and exit (Appendix E). These requirements will be publicized through the Teacher Education division and in the Boyce catalog. Description of the Change Boyce College will begin a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (P-5) and a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Music Education (P-12). The outcomes and learning objectives for both programs are contained in the Conceptual Framework documentation (pp ), which is included as Appendix F. Faculty A four-year schedule of courses is included as Appendices G & GG. Outlines for the programs are included in Appendix H. Course syllabi are included, by program, on the enclosed CDROM. It is anticipated that the new programs will have minimal impact upon existing faculty workloads as a majority of the requirements are existing classes with more than adequate faculty coverage. Dr. Alvin Hickey will oversee the Elementary Education (P-5) program and Dr. Gregory Brewton will coordinate the Integrated Music Education (P-12) program. Both faculty members are full-time and have the necessary education and experience to lead their respective programs. As indicated by the four-year program plan, the need for additional faculty has been distributed over several years. Faculty coverage is sufficient to begin these programs. Faculty roster forms for Drs. Hickey and Brewton are included in Appendix I. Library and Learning Resources The James P. Boyce Centennial Library, founded in 1859, ranks as one of the largest and finest seminary libraries in the United States. Particular strengths of the collection include biblical and theological studies, church history, Christian education, music, psychology and philosophy. The library serves all the schools of the Seminary including Boyce College. In the fall of 2008 the library celebrated receiving the one millionth item in the collection that includes books, journals, music scores, pamphlets, manuscripts, minutes of Baptist organizations, and non-print materials. The library also subscribes to a broad range of online full-text resources. Five professional librarians, ten full time assistants, and part-time student staff maintain the collections and provide a full range of library services to the seminary community. The seminary belongs to the Kentuckiana Metroversity consortium, affording the sharing of borrowing privileges and a courier service with six other area postsecondary schools in the greater Louisville area. Through other cooperative borrowing agreements and inter-library loan, students and faculty have access to materials beyond the region. The library also cooperates closely with the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. The two schools share the 3

4 expense and operations of a library management system and have merged holdings in the online public access catalog. Boyce library is open seventy-five hours a week and provides twenty-four hour access to the online catalog and online databases through the Internet. A detailed list of current holdings relevant to the programs and a multi-year acquisition plan is included in Appendix J. Library agreements are included as Appendix K. Physical Resources The classes for the Elementary Education (P-5) and Integrated Music Education (P-12) programs will meet at Boyce College which is housed in Carver and Rankin Halls on campus in Louisville, KY. These buildings provide 49,935 sq. feet of E&G space and are more than adequate to host the needs of these programs. Additionally, many classes in the Integrated Music Education (P-12) program will also meet in Cooke Hall which has 42,732 sq. feet of dedicated E&G space. A detailed description of building space by usage is included as Appendix L. Existing classroom space and equipment is adequate for 98% of the required classes for the proposed programs. Three courses will require special space and equipment. Courses SC 111 Principles of Biology and SC 121 Principles of Physical Science will require dedicated laboratory space. Boyce College has identified two rooms in Carver Hall that will be renovated to serve these needs. As indicated by the four-year schedule of courses (Appendix G), these courses will not be offered until the fall semester of Renovation is anticipated to begin in Additionally, these laboratories will require specialized equipment. A full list of equipment and expenses has been included in the budget plan for the programs (Appendix M). The third course requiring additional equipment is ED 210 Computers and Media in Schools. To facilitate instruction, Boyce College will purchase and maintain ten laptop computers for in-class use by those students who do not have a personal laptop computer. The seminary has budgeted $9,000 for this purpose and plans to purchase the computers during the fall 2009 semester for use beginning in spring 2010, the first time ED 210 is offered. Additionally, the seminary maintains thirty four computers in the James P. Boyce Centennial Library that are available for students to use outside of the classroom to prepare assignments. Financial Support Business and budget plans for the proposed programs are included in Appendices M and N. The Teacher Education Program is included in the Boyce College budget. Evaluation and Assessment The college will utilize a continuous assessment plan to monitor the effectiveness and necessary improvements to the programs. This plan is described in detail in the Conceptual Framework (pp ) documentation provided in Appendix F. These programs will also be accountable to report annual goals, assessments, and improvements as part of the seminary s overall assessment plan. A complete programmatic review will be conducted one the first cohort of students has graduated from each program. 4
