https://aguadilla.inter.edu/about-us/acreditacion-2/

 

4. Provide an explanation for how the institution verifies that the posted student outcomes data are accurate

Verification of Student Outcomes data by External Sources

The accuracy of posted student outcome data as it relates to licensure pass rates are verified through an official letter of notification from the Board of Examiners for the respective health profession programs (i.e. nursing, pharmacy, radiology, psychology, speech and language therapy, etc…) following an initial written request by the  Department of Health Sciences Director for examination results. 

The accuracy of posted student outcome data for the Teacher Education Program (TEP) are verified by official test results from the College Board which are received after administration of the exam. This examination result data is then reported in the TEP Program’s Title II Report Card in compliance with the Federal Department of Education, Title II Office.

Accredited programs must inform student outcomes data to comply with mandates of the accrediting body and as such the accuracy of data is verified through compliance with accreditation requirements.

 

Verification of Student Outcomes Data by Internal Sources

The Banner system is the repository of IAUPR students’ demographic and academic information. In the academic units, different levels of access, restricted and supervised, are assigned to the collaborators who provide services to our students and who enter this information into the system. Each collaborator has a unique access code or password to the information systems in the databases, which is changed from time to time for greater security.  The information system contains technological programming tools, with the proper technological and information security features, which allow us to generate databases with different parameters, which are used to create the different statistical reports.  The creation of these statistical reports is achieved after a series of tests are carried out to verify that the students included in the report comply with the parameters that the report is intended to collect, to ensure that the published data are correct and updated.

After student outcome data is verified as described, the Development and Alumni Office is charged with the accurate disclosure of such data. The Office of Distance Education and Internationalization ensures the accurate posting of data.

*Many institutions create a single portal page on the institution’s web site that provides hyperlinks to disclosure information (Consumer Information Page, Student Right to Know, HEOA, Fast Facts, At A Glance, etc.).  This is the recommended approach as it facilitates the review by the Commission since it consolidates the information in one place and meets multiple accountability requirements at one time.

6. Standing with State and Other Accrediting Agencies

 

List of Evidence to Demonstrate Compliance:

1. Names of other accreditors, program(s) it accredits, and year of next review

All of the academic programs are accredited by the Department of Education of Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico  Council of Education (CEPR).  In addition, the Campus maintains the following accreditations.

Mission Statement 

The Aguadilla Campus of the Inter American University of Puerto Rico’s mission aims at the integral formation of its students, through education of excellence, within an ecumenical Christian context, at all levels of formal education, with an emphasis on ethical, civic, democratic, and Christian values. Graduates are trained for the critical analysis of reality and are expected to have broad scientific, humanistic, and technical knowledge. Furthermore, they are taught to become responsible individuals, committed to the environment at the service of an interdependent, pluralistic, and global community, capable of adapting to change. In keeping with this purpose, academic areas are strengthened with special attention to interdisciplinary education, distance education, global initiatives, and technology integration in all areas of knowledge. These are achieved within a universal context through articulated management of institutional operations and resources consonant with political, economic, social, technological, environmental, and cultural changes.  

Institutional Priorities  

The institutional priorities identify key areas of emphasis for the Campus and are a platform for action that encourages the development of innovative strategies to design, offer, and improve academic programs, services, and activities for students. The Campus mission is aligned with these priorities to inspire success and accountability.  

Priority 1. Academic Success and Excellence  

Our notion of how academic success and excellence is developed involves creating an academic system of care that offers students transformative experiences through effective programs and services that also provide meaningful opportunities to engage and collaborate with faculty. The markers that contribute to academic success and excellence are examined, paying special attention to those markers that challenge academic success and excellence such as enrollment, retention, and graduation rates. This priority area also examines the role of faculty preparation, development, and scholarship in increasing academic success and excellence. Understanding our own measures for success and excellence is a gateway to improved sustainability, innovation in teaching, and increased opportunities for community engagement.  

Priority 2. Sustainability  

This priority area enables us to examine how internal and external factors impact our social, human, economic, and environmental reach. It also enables the Campus to explore how these factors intersect with the physical, academic, and administrative operations. In examining these factors, we were able to identify and plan for those that contribute to the successful longevity of our Campus. In doing so, we can contribute to sustaining academic success and excellence, fostering a climate for innovation in teaching, and expanding community engagement practices and experiences.  

Priority 3. Innovation in Teaching  

This priority gives us the opportunity to examine, refine and add to our current strategies for teaching and doing and to better understand how these strategies contribute to learning. In addition, by focusing on this priority the Campus can explore how new strategies serve to enhance student learning, program offerings, and faculty capabilities and development. Promoting and developing an environment where innovation in teaching is holistically integrated within all structures influences academic success and excellence, promotes long-term sustainability, and increases the reach of community engagement.  

Priority 4. Community Engagement  

Through this priority, we aim to serve and interact with our broader community in the context of our ecumenical Christian values. These values fundamentally transcend all aspects of the work that we do and as a Campus, we aspire to be distinguished by our contributions to the betterment of society. Community engagement is a key component for establishing academic success and excellence, building sustainability, and paves the way for unique and collaborative partnerships that promote innovative teaching.
