of transmitting knowledge to students a primary focus.

These concerns led me to conclude that our emphasis had to shift to what students learn rather than just emphasizing what we teach. That’s because “knowledge” is no longer a finite and stable commodity; today, the universe of knowledge is expanding exponentially and changing radically. Moreover, I believe that to know things, even a great many things, isn’t enough: what’s more important is being able to use what we know. This “learning paradigm” changes the role of faculty. They are no longer “the sage on the stage,” dispensing knowledge and wisdom from behind a lectern. Instead they become “guides on the side,” who help students discover knowledge and build skills. Faculty become supporters, collaborators, and coaches for students as they learn to evaluate and gather information, test ideas, and explore their application to different issues and problems. Students learn to develop and pose their own questions and explore alternative ways of finding and framing answers. So instead of only working to master the subject matter of a course, students are developing the skills to learn on their own. They no longer wait to be taught: they come to realize that, if they are to succeed, they must take a good deal of responsibility for their own learning. Buildings may outlive their usefulness and be remodeled or replaced, enrollments may rise or fall, the mix of our degree programs may shift, but the aspirations and philosophy that are now firmly embedded in the culture

pedagogy is driven by challenging, open-ended social problems and is facilitated by faculty who nurture and mentor small, collaborative groups of students. Explorations of problems and solutions are used to enhance content knowledge and foster the development of communication, problem-solving, and self-directed learning skills.



ver the last two years, Westminster College has attracted a select cohort of bright, energetic, and motivated problem-solvers who have come to campus ready to learn by doing and ready to use their skills to make the world a better place. They are known as the Westminster Scholars, and they are enrolled in an intensive program that takes the problem-based learning model and synthesizes it into a liberal education core curriculum for the students’ first two years. It is one of the only programs of its kind in the country. The students who thrive as Westminster Scholars learn best when they encounter a problem to solve, an inequity to address, or an oppressive system to correct. They rise to the challenge when ineffective, biased, or prejudiced thinking blocks viable avenues. They love those sorts of ill-defined, troublesome problems that don’t confine themselves to any single academic discipline, but spill across boundaries and require fieldwork, research, creative collaboration, critical thinking, and heated debates. In short, they embody our paradigm shift from teaching to learning. The problem-based learning model was pioneered and used extensively at McMaster University, MIT, Harvard, and the University of Delaware; but it has taken a distinctive direction at Westminster College. Here the

In 2009, its first year, the Westminster Scholars program took on Habitat for Humanity’s fundraising problem. The nonprofit wanted to open a store that could raise money by selling donated construction items, but an earlier attempt had failed. In Professor Steve Hurlbut’s Management 205 course, the Scholars explored marketing ideas, wrote and conducted a survey of Habitat for Humanity ReStores across the nation, and spent a semester researching ideas about how to ensure success. They presented them to Habitat for Humanity’s local Board of Directors as their final exam. The students passed the exam, the board adopted many of their suggestions, and several students remain involved with the nowsuccessful store. Another group of Westminster Scholars was concerned about learning issues faced by the growing population of new refugees relocated in Salt Lake City. They worked with East High School’s principal to develop a tutoring program to address some of those issues. They studied educational and behavioral psychology in Professor Jen Simond’s Psychology 101 class, kept learning journals, and developed an after-school tutoring program. The next year, another group of Scholars worked with Bennion Elementary students and created a similar after-school tutoring program. The students created a program, recruited and trained Westminster students

Traditionally, a “scholar” is someone who specializes in a given branch of knowledge and studies under the direction of a teacher. Our scholars are that...and more. They use their knowledge to analyze problems, develop solutions, and then implement them. The program helps them learn more and do more to improve the lives of others.

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 5 ]

and parents to staff it, worked with the principal to assess and address the Bennion students’ needs in reading and math, and worked to develop an assessment tool to gauge the success of their program. They named it the Little Griffin program, and in the spring of 2011, they brought a group of the elementary students and their parents to campus for a celebration of their success.

UNIQUE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES Westminster Scholars have the unique opportunity to apply for independent summer research projects in the summer after their freshman year. Five grants of $1,500 allow students to work with faculty mentors on research. Research projects have been in such diverse subjects as biology, chemistry, paleontology, psychology, and service-learning. Samantha Hartford was in the first cohort of Westminster Scholars in the fall of 2009. She received a summer research grant to study colleges that

had successfully received the Carnegie Foundation Community Engagement classification, as part of Westminster’s preparation to apply for the same classification (which the college was subsequently awarded). As a history major with a minor in paleontology, Samantha went on to receive a prestigious Gore summer research grant in 2011 to work with Professor David Goldsmith reviewing letters written by Georges Cuvier, an eighteenth-century French naturalist. She’ll translate the letters and then use content analysis to quantify and compare the inherent meaning of different texts to critically evaluate the letters. In the summer of 2011, three Westminster scholars who had conducted research as freshmen won competitive summer research grants. Samantha Hartford (mentioned above) and Amanda Fadling both received Westminster College’s Gore summer research grants, and Emilee Naylor received a grant to conduct research at a psychology lab at the University of Oregon.

The Westminster Scholars program provides an exciting new model for ensuring that learning is practical as well as theoretical. Summer research grants for international students are a rarity in the United States. But two students from Kenya, Victor Boss and Rita Okumu, were awarded Westminster Scholars 2011 summer research grants and were able to pursue the undergraduate research opportunities offered by our new Meldrum Science Center and science faculty. Both are pre-med students who hope to pursue medical degrees and return home to Kenya to practice. Their research experiences will play an important role in preparing them for careers in medicine.


Westminster College is one of only a handful of colleges that offers freshmen the chance to work one-on-one with faculty on high-quality research projects. The process helps students develop the sorts of skills and foundational methods that will serve them as they apply for other summer research grants, write theses and capstone essays, and compete for graduate fellowships.

Each year the Westminster Scholars program has grown and attracted more engaged, inspired, and conscientious problem-solvers. It is a perfect opportunity for students to be involved in the curriculum in ways that suit their unique learning styles. In the coming year, the program will sponsor a prize for undergraduates for social entrepreneurship with the Opportunity Quest, an annual business plan competition. For the Westminster Scholars, the world really is their classroom, and like Henry Kaiser, they think that problems are only opportunities in work clothes.

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 6 ]

PROJECT-BASED PROGRAMS At Westminster College: The Perfect Design If you were asked to design the perfect academic program, what would it look like? Could you build in the intimate and personalized experience Westminster College is known for and keep it at the heart of the program—even though students rarely come to campus? Working with a team of faculty members, I was given a chance to do just that, starting in 2006. This work resulted in the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, our project-based undergraduate degreecompletion program for working adults, which we launched in 2008. This fall the program welcomed 125 new and continuing students. We’ve also built a project-based version of the MBA program for graduate students, which this fall has 140 students, 80 of whom are in a dual-degree program with our partner university, Donghua University, in Shanghai, China. On the heels of these successful beginnings, I now have the pleasure of working with faculty in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences to develop even more cuttingedge Westminster programs using this model.

So, what does this perfect model look like? We decided that it has five distinct guiding principles: 1 Mastery of the learning: Students complete each program only when they’ve successfully demonstrated full mastery of the program learning goals. Think about this statement: it implies that previous “rules” of higher education—specific credit hours based on how many physical hours a student

by Aric Krause, PhD, Dean, Division of New Learning

2 Demonstrated learning: Our requirement calls for “demonstrated mastery of learning.” We want to see how well students can apply what they’ve learned and mastered in multiple real-world applications. Our philosophy of mastery means that B- or C-level work is insufficient, as it does not show the learner’s ability to fluently and expertly apply what he or she has learned, regardless of the context or situation.

3 Demonstration through real-world projects: Because we want to see what learners can do with what they know, we’ve built projects modeled after those in the business world. They are cross-functional and use real-world data and market realities. Examples





formulating strategy, segmenting the market and targeting particular segments, developing pro-forma financials for new products or services, developing strategy implementation plans…the list goes on.

4 Knowledge on demand: In traditional programs, the classroom is used as a forum for faculty to disseminate information. We flip the model by putting that information in an on-demand business knowledge database. This cutting-edge technology enables students to read textbooks, watch videos, participate in simulations, get links to best practices from various professional organizations, read case studies—whatever works best for their style of learning. Learners can access these resources 24/7, from anywhere in the world, as many times as they need. Again, our concentration is solely on learning. For example, a student who is currently a professional

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 7 ]

5 Faculty as coaches and mentors: Our faculty aren’t in the classroom lecturing, disseminating basic information; our technology is doing that. Instead, faculty members are working individually with learners to help them achieve mastery in their projects. Some learners need a lot of help, and others need little: the approach is customized to the student. Through that process, we build significant, personal, trusting, and individual relationships with each of our learners. When learners’ projects just don’t quite meet our “mastery” requirement, students don’t receive a failing grade: they work personally with their faculty coach, learning how to improve the projects, and then they receive the opportunity to do so, iteratively working toward mastery. That’s one version of a perfect program: learners who finish the program with expertise, learners who get a very personal and meaningful experience with Westminster’s outstanding faculty members, and learners who can go into their professional field able to do, not just know. We acknowledge that this model may not fit all areas of study all the time. That’s why at Westminster we are innovating across the curriculum, in a multitude of ways. Of course, issues of quality and cost arise: are we delivering a program with the highest quality of learning? And what is the resulting impact on cost? We ran a pilot with 28 learners from an international company headquartered in Salt Lake City over the past two years; the group graduated this past summer. Executives at the company who watched the group go through the program were amazed at the improvements they saw in both students’ business knowledge and application, but also in their applied professional skills. We are now more formally measuring the learning in the programs, benchmarked against national business programs. And the quality of learning looks strong. Most importantly, student surveys say that we’ve successfully maintained Westminster’s reputation for a highly personal and highquality educational experience. In terms of costs, the results are very promising: it looks like we’ve been able to deliver high-quality learning

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 8 ]

without increasing the cost of delivery. In fact, in this current year, with both programs at full scale, we expect to see very promising results. As we continue to scale and add new programs based on the model, amortizing our initial development costs, we will see significant cost reductions that can then be passed along to students. We’ll share them in next year’s report.

Over the years, we’ve held many conversations with executives from national and international corporations. These executives have helped us refine our thinking about the competencies learners have to master to be ready to succeed. I remember one top executive from a Fortune 50 company who told me that when he’s hiring new employees, he asks one common question, “What can you do for our company?” He told me that when newly minted MBA interviewees quickly start rattling off the courses they’ve taken, he immediately interrupts them saying, “I didn’t ask what courses you’d taken. I asked what you could do for our company.” Our graduates can respond, “I’ve managed projects, I’ve built financials for new products, I’ve segmented markets, I’ve analyzed and rebuilt processes, I’ve led teams to successful measured results, and I’ve presented business ideas to board-level executives.”

by Gerry Fairbairn, PhD, Professor, Aviation, and Gail Avendaño, Director of Aviation Student Support, Flight Operations

NEW CURRICULUM FOCUSED ON CRITICAL, ANALYTICAL, AND INTEGRATIVE THINKING Clearly, we have a lot of things to be proud of. But we wanted to create an even more effective program because we saw some weaknesses in the traditional curriculum, and so we have created a unique and innovative flight-training curriculum, which we began offering in fall 2011. Traditional training models require students to complete a series of There are only four Master Certified flight maneuvers and skills within Flight Instructors in the entire state prescribed total-hour requirements of Utah, and two are at Westminster: for each flight certificate or rating. This model assumed that students were Julie Paasch, MEd, Director of Flight completing flight training in virtually Education, and Lance Vaculin, MEd, identical training environments Director of Flight Operations. (not a busy class B airspace) and would become proficient with flight maneuvers in a specified number of hours. Since the college began offering Additionally, traditional models gave students relatively aviation classes in 1969, our few opportunities to practice and demonstrate decisionmaking and critical-thinking skills in the ways that programs have evolved to meet and employers demand.

exceed the increasingly stringent demands of nationwide airlines and corporate flight departments looking for pilot candidates.

In terms of training, our operational base at the Salt Lake International Airport makes us the only four-year collegiate flight program that operates out of “class B airspace”—a busy international airport environment. That means, from day one of their training, our students are learning to fly in the same environment they will fly in as airline, corporate, or cargo pilots. Those complex conditions require us to maintain strict safety protocols, and the result has been impressive: over 70,000 hours of accident-free training flights.

After serious consideration and planning, we have produced a new curriculum that changes all of that: While students will still earn the same pilot certificates and ratings as they did under our old curriculum, the new courses require students to learn much more than the minimum FAA certification requirements. Our program now “systematically builds pilot skills and abilities in more interconnected, realistic, and applicable ways.”

SCENARIO-BASED TRAINING Among the many innovative features in the new curriculum is a focus on scenario-based training. Rather than building a student’s flight training around specific, isolated maneuvers and procedures such as departing a field with a short runway or using instruments to fly,

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 9 ]

the new curriculum demands that students apply their skills and flight knowledge to address scenarios that more closely replicate situations they will encounter as commercial or corporate pilots. Students make real-world, real-time decisions such as how to conduct a flight, which might mean altering their flight plan, diverting to an alternate airport, interacting with passengers and other crew members, or best handling in-air emergencies.

FOCUS ON DECISION-MAKING The new curriculum also enhances decision-making, a particularly important skill in aviation because a relatively high percentage of aviation accidents is related to pilot judgment. Airlines and corporate flight departments have been working to address pilot-judgment issues for some time and have been quite successful in reducing the number of accidents related to poor decision-making. Our new curriculum is one of the few in academic aviation that uses many of the techniques that have proven to be effective in developing strong decision-making skills. Scenario-based training, for example, puts students into positions where they must make realistic decisions and practice decision-making skills right from the very beginning of their training. As they move into the Pilot in Command Development course, flight experiences and simulator training enable students to take command of situations by making decisions and then reflecting on the appropriateness of those decisions. The continued coursework sequence presents students with increasingly challenging scenarios as they further practice and develop their decision-making and teamwork skills.

to reduce the total number of hours required for the commercial certificate. Under this new program, the FAA allows pilots to obtain a Commercial Pilot Certificate when they can demonstrate the necessary competencies, rather than requiring them to have a specific number of total hours. In the past, students had to complete a number of solo cross-country flights that had relatively little training value beyond reaching the specified number of hours. In the new curriculum, every hour of flight will maximize student learning opportunities and will not serve to simply “build time.” Our approach emphasizes college-wide learning goals: it focuses on critical, analytical, and integrative thinking and on providing students with more opportunities to develop leadership, collaboration, and teamwork skills. These innovative changes make the Westminster College aviation program distinctive and will better prepare students for success in the rapidly changing world of aviation.

LEARNER-CENTERED GRADING We have also implemented a learner-centered grading approach. In traditional models, when a student and instructor completed a flight lesson, the instructor would give verbal feedback and then issue a grade for the lesson. The student had very limited participation in that exchange. Under the new curriculum, students reflect upon the lesson, complete a self-evaluation of their performance, and explain verbally to their instructor why they evaluated themselves the way they did. The instructor then provides additional feedback and a final overall evaluation of the lesson. In this approach, the learning continues to take place beyond the flight, and students develop reflective and realistic self-assessment skills, along with stronger communication skills.

courses designed specifically to prepare graduates to understand other important aspects of community life: individual behavioral change and processes of social change, the basics of how economies work, the policy-making process, and ways to influence it through community organizing and advocacy. The comprehensive program also includes electives on fundraising, working with volunteers, the arts and communities, and international contexts for leadership. This year we designed a new track for students who want to work in other countries or with nonprofits addressing international issues. Throughout the design processes, we drew on the expertise of about 60 people from large and small nonprofits, advocacy groups, elected office, corporate community relations, government offices, and Westminster’s faculty. Several community members continue to serve on an advisory board for the program, assisting with design questions, connections to resources in the community, and evaluation of the program through a portfolio and presentation process.

ive years ago, a predicted shortage of nonprofit leaders and an increased need for the services nonprofits provide led a small group of us to start dreaming and researching ways to address those issues. Our efforts resulted in a unique new program: the Master of Arts in Community Leadership (MACL). Today, the MACL program is attracting students, impressing employers, and contributing to the betterment of the community. As we built the program, we started with some of the best Westminster has to offer: strong graduate programs in leadership, management, and communication. We combined classes from these programs with new

I am pleased to report that the program accepted 20 students in each of the first two years and expanded to 30 students in 2011. Several students have already applied for 2012. The first graduating class last spring showcased the quality of the program. Through their capstone projects, students created specific, well-researched recommendations, manuals, and curricula, most of which are already being implemented or used by the organizations with which students collaborated. Ashley Farmer, volunteer coordinator for the Road Home, used her project to support a collaborative effort of several homeless shelters and related agencies to develop better ways to serve homeless youth. Ashley’s research was essential for the development of the group’s plan. Fundraising to implement the plan has already started.

corporations and developed specific recommendations that Wasatch Community Gardens is using to evaluate offers for partnerships from corporations. When the National Organization of Women approached Eva Rinaldi about restarting a chapter in Utah, Eva researched women’s organizations in Utah to see what issues were already being addressed and where there were pressing issues that needed attention. She interviewed leaders of the major women’s organizations in Utah, observed lobbying at the legislature, and researched academic databases. She created a plan that outlines what the focus of the reorganized chapter will be and how to proceed with the next steps to recreate the chapter. Other students developed specific recommendations for state- and district-level policies to encourage building “green” schools and to provide more effective

We created an interdisciplinary program that draws on multiple academic disciplines. Students apply classroom learning in service projects with community organizations. They collaborate with peers, community members, and faculty. We are able to respond quickly to students’ interests and create unique courses such as Arts and Communities and the new International Track. Creating and directing the MACL program have been a dream come true for me. The program has brought a new group of creative and dedicated students to Westminster. It has enhanced our presence in and our service to the community. Most importantly, the program provides leaders who are well prepared to meet the challenges of directing community organizations in our rapidly changing world.

summer meal programs for low-income children. Another researched the history and effects of changes to Utah water law, and another developed a plan for introducing the Humane Certified label for meat and dairy products in Utah grocery stores. Tracy Stevens, instructor of the Capstone Project course, said she was “blown away by the incredible projects.” While she had expected them to be high quality, she was delighted to see how quickly the projects were being implemented and contributing to positive change in the community. Four of the students were selected to present their research at the Lt. Governor’s Conference on Volunteerism last April. Their session was well attended and enabled the students to share their research results with a larger audience. One of the first graduates of the program said, “I don’t think I ever felt so prepared applying for a job as I did when applying for PPAU (Planned Parenthood Association of Utah) this past February.” She was hired to develop an educational and youth

Students are already seeing results in their careers. Multiple students have been promoted within their organizations or hired for the first time in the nonprofit sector on the basis of their enrollment in the program.

By James Stimpson, CRNA, DNP, Director, MSNA Program

Westminster introduced the Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia (MSNA) program in fall 2006 to educate critical care registered nurses (RNs) with baccalaureate degrees in nursing to become Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs). At that time, there were only five CRNA programs west of the Mississippi River and more than 100 CRNA programs to the east.

HANDS-ON COLLABORATION But our classroom experience is different from most. To begin with, all our classrooms are stateof-the-art with smart boards and presentation projectors. Outside the classroom, all students utilize Westminster’s wireless Internet and ANGEL learning platform for assignments, quizzes, chat rooms, and examinations. A good deal of their learning takes place in a simulated operating room environment. The simulation room is complete with a fully functioning anesthesia machine, a stocked medication and supply cart, monitors, and airway tools. Mannequins are used for placing peripheral intravenous lines and

sterile technique and suturing. Using other software and technology, we have been able to limit lectures to no more than 10 percent of class time. By minimizing lectures and making our students active participants in their learning, we have seen retention climb as high as 90 percent. And the scope of what the students learn expands as they discover problems and try to solve them.


outpatient surgical centers, and rural health care facilities. CRNAs and anesthesiologists work one-onone with our students as they participate in nearly 1,000 surgical cases before they graduate. Students gain valuable experience in deep conscious sedation;

regional anesthesia, like spinals and epidurals; and general anesthesia. One of the primary assets of our program is our clinical faculty, who share their personal experiences and techniques with our students on a daily basis. Students perform clinical rotations at an average of four locations. Because 20 different hospitals and surgical centers work with our students, they gain a well-rounded experience with many types of patients, surgical procedures, and anesthesia techniques. MSNA program faculty travel to each clinical site on a regular basis to monitor student progress and to work with clinical preceptors, as they are in the operating room with our students. Distance education courses are supporting the clinical rotations in sites from El Paso, Texas, to Rexburg, Idaho, and Fresno, California, to Garden City, Kansas.

this mentorship program was introduced, every student in the program has maintained satisfactory academic progress. Westminster MSNA graduates have been able to secure full-time positions within a few months after graduating, with most students finding employment well before they graduate. Several of our graduates now work as CRNAs and serve as clinical preceptors, teaching our students and thus perpetuating a cycle of educating highly skilled CRNAs. It is our goal to admit the finest, sharpest, most compassionate nurses into the MSNA program and see them through to graduation with the support and compassion of a friend, a teacher, and a role model. In the MSNA program, our students trust us to help them accomplish their goals, and we feel responsible to make sure they succeed.

INTENSIVE FACULTY MENTORING Assistant Program Director Chris Torman, CRNA, MNA, developed a mentoring program that assures all admitted students are personally guided along their journey. Each of the three full-time MSNA faculty members has six students for whom he or she is personally responsible. Advisors do much more than recommend which classes to take: they get to know the students, their families, their likes and dislikes; discuss their study patterns; and identify how they best learn new material. Each faculty member is held accountable for his or her students’ success in the program: for performing well on course assignments and exams, for developing clinical skills, and for passing the national certifying board examination. Faculty also maintain relationships with students after graduation as a friend and mentor for the graduates. Measurement of success in the nurse anesthesia program continues beyond the campus and into the daily lives of our students as they begin their new careers.

SUCCESSFUL OUTCOMES Our innovative investment in our students’ education has contributed to a 100-percent board pass rate by first-time test takers in 2010, and since

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 14 ]

The MSNA program draws between 80 and 90 applicants each year for one of the coveted 18 student spots. Our MSNA program attracts applicants from across the world. Selected applicants have come from as far away as Canada, Alaska, Alabama, and South Carolina. We currently have two students from Kenya.

Most learning in higher education is private—seen only by the student and the faculty member who grades that student’s work. The learning may be weak or strong, superficial or deep. But regardless of how good it is, it is largely invisible. Invisible learning has two big weaknesses: First, it divides student understanding into course-sized compartments—math in one mental box, history in another. Second, it limits the power of learning to bring about change, be it for other students, for the campus, or for the broader community.

college-wide learning goals. They will have become critical thinkers, excellent communicators, and effective leaders and team members. They will have developed creative and reflective capacities and strengthened their habits of global consciousness, social responsibility, and ethical awareness.

We are using two tools to make learning public and accountable at Westminster. The first—our college-wide learning goals—provides a common set of outcomes towards which all students work. Regardless of a student’s major, regardless of the courses the student takes, by graduation, all Westminster students will have achieved the

The second tool—ePortfolios—gives students a common platform for sharing their learning with others. Starting with the fall 2011 class, all undergraduates will build an electronic portfolio that both shows how their learning has grown through their time at the college and demonstrates how it meets the college-wide learning goals. The undergraduate portfolio initiative

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 15 ]

follows on a tradition of success with portfolios at the graduate level in education and at the undergraduate level in the communication program at Westminster. Our experience with portfolios has convinced us that they are powerful tools for integrating, analyzing, and improving student learning. In turn, these portfolios can be used to demonstrate learning to other audiences: faculty, parents, families, graduate schools, and employers, among them. The college-wide learning goals and ePortfolios deepen and share student learning. Neither tool is new, but together they are a force for innovation at Westminster, helping to reshape the curriculum, the campus, and Westminster’s place in the higher education community.

COLLEGE-WIDE LEARNING GOALS AND INNOVATION AT WESTMINSTER Westminster did not invent learning goals. Colleges and universities have espoused goals for as long as they have existed. And some of those goals—learning to think critically, communicate well, and contribute to the common good—are as old as higher education itself.

On many campuses students think of college as simply an accumulation of unrelated courses, and of their learning as a private act; Westminster’s learning goals and portfolio initiative shift student attention to common outcomes. These outcomes are not in opposition to a student’s major or desired career. Instead, they enrich those more particular goals. And in so doing, they both drive the college to excel in its work and help students to do the same.

But for at least the past 50 years, the importance of institution-wide learning goals has been in decline in American colleges and universities—diminished by the emergence of narrow, discipline-specific, employmentrelated goals and by typical organizational structures that favor these narrow goals. Colleges and universities continue to create institution-wide learning goals, it is true. But those goals are ornamental, and their achievement is assumed rather than ensured. It is in this context that Westminster’s college-wide learning goals are innovative. They were agreed upon by faculty, staff, and administrators during the college’s most recent strategic-planning effort. Once adopted the learning goals have had a profound impact on the college and its students. Far more than simply listing our aspirations, the learning goals have shaped the college’s curriculum, driven the creation of new academic programs, determined the allocation of

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 16 ]

resources, connected learning in the classroom with that outside the classroom, and influenced the learning of every student—undergraduate and graduate—on campus. Such a thorough embrace of the learning goals has done far more than reinvigorate learning at Westminster. It has placed the college at the forefront of American higher education as it returns to a focus on student learning and on helping to create graduates who can think critically, solve problems, and create better communities

DEEPER STUDENT LEARNING For years, colleges and universities have proclaimed that their graduates are prepared to succeed in the wider world. And for years, the public has responded that is not the case: unfortunately, graduates have been unprepared to contribute to their communities and work places as they should. It is not enough, then, to simply say that Westminster graduates have developed the skills described in the college-wide learning goals. ePortfolios allow students to show that they have become the sorts of people that they, and the college, want them to become. Portfolios have been an integral part of the art, business, education, and communication programs at Westminster College for more than 10 years. With the advent of new technologies, many of these portfolios have taken on digital formats. ePortfolio usage at Westminster has exploded in the last three years, with more and more programs utilizing this format as part of program assessment. And the electronic versions of portfolios now make it possible for all Westminster undergraduates to do what their Westminster peers have been doing for years: publicly demonstrate their learning. The electronic portfolio initiative, a unique effort within the entire field of higher education, requires all students to begin developing a portfolio dedicated to the college-wide learning goals when they first enter the college. Beginning in the fall orientation, students are introduced to the college-wide learning goals and how important they are to the students’ academic success.

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 17 ]

In the fall Learning Communities, faculty are continually developing student understanding of concepts such as critical thinking and global consciousness. As students progress through the semesters, they regularly update their portfolios with artifacts (essays, lab reports, digital stories, social-media assignments, and more) that demonstrate their achievement of the collegewide learning goals. Near the end of their sophomore year, these students submit their portfolios for evaluation by a group of faculty who provide feedback to students using common, campus-wide standards. This feedback is intended to help students ascertain their current status in achieving the college-wide learning goals and determine ways that they can increase their skill level in the future.

COLLEGE-WIDE LEARNING GOALS: 1. Critical, analytical, and integrative thinking 2. Creative and reflective capacities 3. Leadership, collaboration, and teamwork 4. Writing and other communication skills 5. Global consciousness, social responsibility, and ethical awareness

“Taken together, the collegewide learning goals and ePortfolios are tools that both improve student learning and improve Westminster.

understand their college experience and themselves better. “Naturally, I have the desire to improve myself every day. Creating a portfolio has allowed me to enhance my learning through self-reflection,” says Toni Sanford, an education major. And portfolios prepare students to succeed after graduation. “Every piece in my compilation of work shows how I have developed my business skills over four years at the college,” indicates business major Pamela Sanchez.


Again and again, students report that creating portfolios helps them understand their college experience and themselves better.”

Upon completion of this midpoint portfolio, which focuses on liberal education classes, students move into their academic disciplines. There, they continue to develop their portfolios, reflecting on how they have improved and how the college-wide learning goals interact. The portfolios can also be utilized for program-specific goals, further increasing the number and types of artifacts that a student is considering. These efforts culminate in the final semester as students again submit their portfolios for evaluation. This final evaluation enables the students and the college to see the degree to which the students are able to demonstrate their knowledge and achievement of all five college-wide learning goals.

RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICAL AWARENESS Taken together, the college-wide learning goals and ePortfolios are tools that both improve student learning and improve Westminster. Again and again, students report that creating portfolios helps them

The process of integrating learning goals into the day-to-day activities of the college has brought about major changes as well. The learning goals are also the basis of new program design. Faculty interested in creating new programs begin with outcomes in mind. They ask what students should be able to do when they graduate, and how they will know when students have met those standards. Only once outcomes—college-wide and program-specific— and demonstrations of achievement are determined do faculty begin designing classes to help students achieve those outcomes. The same focus on outcomes shapes activities in the co-curriculum. Student athletes, volunteers at the college’s centers and institutes, and participants in student government all do more than simply participate. Instead, their participation contributes to their learning. This is even the case for students who work on campus. All on-campus jobs are designed to help meet the college’s needs, help students earn a much-needed income, and aid students in achieving the college’s learning goals. In fact, each on-campus position must be designed to support the college-wide learning goals. The role of on-campus work in helping students stay enrolled and in enhancing their learning is so significant that the college has made major investments in employing more student workers. The intent of these examples is clear: Having a common set of outcomes (learning goals), designing programs to achieve them, and then expecting students to demonstrate the achievement of those goals have resulted in an innovative campus.

In 2002,

when the board of trustees was

searching for a new president, they wanted a leader with vision—someone who could take Westminster to the next level of success. During his nine years as president, Michael Bassis has done just that. One of the keys to his continuing success has been the development of the President’s Innovation Network (PIN), a fund supported by a special group of investors. PIN’s sole purpose is to support the kind of academic programs and initiatives that often fail to get the support they need in the zero-sum game that relatively static departmental budgets create. With a pool of funds outside the normal budgetary constraints, President Bassis could support creative ideas that would enrich Westminster’s learning environment. So in the fall of 2005, PIN was born. “I can tell you first-hand the frustration faculty feel when their ideas to improve the student experience get bogged down in the budgetary processes. Having a designated source of funding for new, innovative programs allows me to act quickly when I see a need or an opportunity. PIN has made a big difference in the speed at which a good idea can become a reality,” President Bassis explains.

Opening Doors to Fresh Ideas Many projects seeking PIN support reflect goals outlined in Westminster’s strategic plan, while others come from faculty members interested in a specific idea or academic area. As these ideas surface, President Bassis and Provost Cid Seidelman discuss their efficacy with faculty leaders, the board of trustees, and Westminster friends who have a particular interest in an initiative under consideration. The president considers three main factors when deciding to fund a project: how it will impact student learning, whether those involved are committed to its growth and long-term success, and if it supports existing academic programs.

“While a PIN initiative may have great potential, I agree to fund it fully expecting that goals may change, strategies might evolve, and circumstances might require unanticipated adaptations.”

The selection criteria provide a certain amount of confidence about a program’s ability to flourish, but do not guarantee success. “While a PIN initiative may have great potential, I agree to fund it fully expecting that goals may change, strategies may evolve, and circumstances may require unanticipated adaptations. The program could even fail, and that is okay. In fact, that is one of the main reasons PIN is so valuable to Westminster: it can fund programs that the college’s more risk-adverse operating budget might be unable to support. And taking risks, walking the edge, is often what reaps the greatest rewards,” according to President Bassis. An example of an innovative PIN-funded program that enhances student learning is our Great Salt Lake Institute (GSLI). While the Great Salt Lake is a defining feature of our state, it is also an understudied and underutilized resource. With waters nearly 10 times the salinity of the oceans, the Great Salt Lake is one of the most extreme ecosystems in the world. Dr. Bonnie Baxter, associate professor of biology and international expert on microorganisms that live in extreme environments, particularly the Great Salt Lake, recognized the lake as a new territory for exploration, learning, and stewardship. She knew that working cooperatively with other institutions, state government, businesses, and other interested groups would help everyone better understand and use the lake’s resources. She also knew that the potential for student learning was endless. Thus, when her proposal to Westminster College to found the GSLI was approved, it received start-up funding from PIN. Today, the GSLI has become a leading example of the transformation Westminster is making in the educational experience. Our students are directly involved in the exciting research being conducted by the GSLI. Students collect samples, gather data, interpret the evidence, draw conclusions, and publish papers describing their work—all under the

direction and with the support of our talented faculty. At the same time the GSLI is conducting sophisticated scientific research, it is sponsoring interdisciplinary activities that include hosting lectures by distinguished guests, supporting high schools and their science activities, and working with nonprofit conservation groups to preserve and protect the lake as a natural resource.

The Means to Explore New Directions Since its founding, more than 50 Westminster friends and alumni have donated an average of $10,000 annually to PIN. At many colleges and universities, that amount would entitle donors to a room in their honor. PIN donors receive little in terms of name recognition, and they do not know in advance what programs President Bassis will support with their donations. They only know he will spend their gifts wisely. And their reward lies in the knowledge that their donations are making a significant impact on Westminster College. As President Bassis has stated, “The faith in the college imparted by the PIN donors gives me the courage to continue to explore new directions, try new strategies, and offer our students innovative programs that make Westminster education more relevant and more effective.”

The challenges facing Westminster are exacerbated by a rapidly changing macroeconomic environment in which fear and uncertainty are increasingly pervasive.

Without a new strategy, can Westminster sustain its well-revered “high touch” educational model in a future of unabated inflation in higher education costs, reductions in federal subsidies and financial aid, and extended periods of high unemployment and declining asset values?

Some would suggest this is a temporary period of instability and that better times will soon return. Others may argue that the investments the college has made in transforming Westminster have sufficiently wellpositioned the college to navigate the future. While most stakeholders are very bullish on Westminster’s future and are proud of its recent accomplishments, we do believe the college needs additional strategies to mitigate the risks described above.

STRENGTH I N A N EW STRATEGY In response to a world of impending threats, the college has created a new tripartite strategy that focuses on the following: 1. Strengthening and sustaining the undergraduate core 2. Offering graduate programs in fields with high demand 3. Developing new revenue streams through innovative/marketable degree and nondegree programs

The tripartite strategy preserves the college’s longstanding commitment to provide small classes with extensive faculty-student interaction and a dynamic residential campus environment (our core high-touch model). At the same time, we will continue to explore and develop new pedagogies, program designs, and technologies that promote high levels of learning at lower cost (more efficient and effective learning designs). This strategy complements other initiatives to make our undergraduate programs more financially self-sustaining, such as reallocating expenditures to higher institutional priorities and focusing fundraising on student scholarships and

operational expenses.

The tripartite strategy reduces our dependence on continued undergraduate enrollment growth and enables the college to establish a cap on undergraduate enrollment. Introducing new graduate programs that fill market niches further diversifies our revenue sources by reaching underserved or unserved markets. It provides investment capital to fund the college’s innovation agenda through a process that identifies new revenue opportunities that may or may not include degree-granting programs, but will—by design—increase revenue to the college. Income from the new graduate programs and other new revenue opportunities will position the college to successfully navigate and adapt to the changing landscape of higher education, while providing additional time and resources requisite to the college’s development of a long-term path to ensure sustainability of our core undergraduate mission. Consistent with our strategic plan, this tripartite strategy is designed to preserve our mission as a high-quality, comprehensive, undergraduate liberal arts college. The success of this strategy is critical to the college’s ability to continue investing in the core, increasing our value proposition to traditional undergraduate students, and furthering our ambitions to become a nationally recognized, exemplary community of learners.

Over the past several years, Westminster has made phenomenal progress in implementing its strategic plan and, in the process, has transformed the college. In many ways the tripartite model deepens and adds clarity to the 2004 strategic plan. The synergy of these strategies is evidence of the college’s growing competency in assessing its status and effectively planning for its future. The college’s ongoing process of reviewing accomplishments, monitoring its internal and external environments, and engaging in comprehensive planning to guide strategic positioning and to define its future direction has powerful implications for the college’s long-term relevancy, effectiveness, and sustainability.

Thank you! When Westminster completes a large fundraising campaign—on the scale of the Meldrum Science Center—we often see the number of our donors wane as they set their sights on other deserving organizations. But that didn’t happen this year. Even as these challenging economic times persist, more of you gave to Westminster than ever before! Thank you. The reason you support Westminster is a personal one. Likely you realize the value of Westminster within the educational landscape. And I hope you recognize the growing reputation of the college—an outgrowth of our unique learning environment and the caliber of students who leave Westminster ready to make a difference. Ultimately, I view your support as an endorsement of the work we do as students, faculty, and staff. Our mission is to continue to prepare graduates for the rapidly changing world in which we live, and we couldn’t do this without you. In this Honor Roll, we recognize all who have invested their dollars, as well as their time and talent, to help make Westminster a success. With thanks,

A N D I N N O VAT I O N In 2006, alumnus Tom Hawk recognized President Westminster College. “I was excited about the academic transformation I saw happening at my

1950 Ralph Jennings Edward Juhan Beverly Taylor Snodgress

alma mater,” he said. “As a college professor and former dean of a school of business, I wanted to encourage what I saw.” Tom created the Hawk Excellence in Teaching Fund to provide the college the additional funds needed to support faculty as they transformed their curriculum using more experiential, active, and cross-disciplinary designs. In the past five years, Tom has provided generous funding for workshops and faculty stipends to encourage innovative teaching across all disciplines. “It is wonderful to find an alumnus who truly understands the transformation occurring at Westminster,” says President Bassis. “And Tom’s encouragement means as much as his financial support.” Thank you, Tom Hawk, for caring about Westminster

As is the origin of so many college love stories, Gia Throndsen-Whitlock (’02) and Trevor Whitlock (’04) met in a dorm: in their case Behnken Hall. They married in 2004 and began their careers: Gia as a designer, Trevor as a software developer.

Gia left the workforce to start a family and delve into her true passion: art. She thought art would be a part-time interest, but her talent has been discovered! Gia’s works have been shown in exhibits at the 15th Street Gallery, Springville Art Museum, and even Westminster’s Alumni House. Trevor, too, has found success as a Java developer at O.C. Tanner and is now moving into research and development, a new and exciting challenge.

The Whitlocks attribute much of their success to their experience at Westminster, which is why they choose to support The Westminster Fund. “We give back because we want other students to have the same opportunities we did,” Gia said. “We believe the Westminster experience should be within the reach of anyone who desires it.” Gia stresses that giving back is just part of being in the Westminster community. “Westminster doesn’t ask that much in return for what it gave and continues to give us! Even $25 makes a difference. Besides, it feels good to give.”

2011 President’s Annual Report [ 53 ]

Laura Le贸n Thanks You aLL When I began my college search, I looked for a small school where I could get to know my professors and make a positive impact. I chose Westminster because of its reputation for making students think, speak up, ask questions, and communicate well. I made a great choice; Westminster is the right fit for me. But as is the case for so many students, I would not be at Westminster if I had not received scholarships. I would like to personally thank every person who has invested in the students at Westminster by supporting scholarships. We would not be here without you. My experience at Westminster has made me excited about the future. My goal is to attend law school and one day work in immigration law. I look forward to giving back to the community by providing free or lowcost legal services to those who need help. Without the support of those who believe in my potential, I could
