The American Association of State Colleges and Universities was established in 1961 in response to: "The growing impact of the federal government on higher education, particularly as it related to research grants and other grants-in-aid, had made it absolutely necessary that a strong national association be formed to represent the interests of students in state colleges and universities."* AASCU grew out of the Association of Teacher Education Institutions that had been organized in 1951 to serve public comprehensive institutions most of them having begun as single purpose institutions, most of them normal schools.

The General Academic Learning Experience is an assessment of community college student learning in the liberal arts. The study involved the design and administration of an instrument, which included a demographic survey and a multiple-choice content test. In total, over 2,500 students from 10 colleges in Southern California participated. Employing quantitative analysis methods, we found relationships between students’ knowledge in the liberal arts and their course-taking and other background characteristics. The results of the study are timely in helping institutions respond to increasing calls for accountability in measuring student learning outcomes.

Ayaangwaamizin: The International Journal of Indegenious Philosophy   http://flash.lakeheadu.ca/~agaamiz/  Site Reviews(0)
Ayaangwaamizin is a refereed academic journal devoted to the examination of Indigenous thought. Its existence is a recognition of the growing number of Indigenous scholars who are engaged in critically examining the ideas and concepts in their own cultural traditions as well as in others. The title chosen for the Journal, Ayaangwaamizin, is drawn from the Anishnabe language. Translated literally, it is usually read as "to go carefully," "to tread carefully." But beyond this superficial meaning is the idea that the actions of persons have consequences for a larger whole. The term is used in a context that assumes the meaningfulness of existence and action--we do not live in a "neutral" universe that exists beyond and outside ourselves. We are a part of the fabric of the universe. First Nations Aboriginal
