Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan, Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs, will represent the University of Baltimore at the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) Network for Academic Renewal conference, General Education and Assessment: From My Work to Our Workin New Orleans, Louisiana between February 18-20, 2016. Founded in 1915, AAC&U is the leading national association concerned with the quality, vitality, and public standing of undergraduate liberal education.

AAC&U’s 2016 conference on General Education and Assessment is designed to examine research, evidence, and models for effective general education programs and courses that work for all students.  With focused attention on equity, the meeting will examine effective general education teaching and learning methods,  campus cultures that value and support general education, integrative general education frameworks, and transparent approaches to assessment.

In spring 2016, Dr. Sheehan was appointed by Provost Darlene Brannigan Smith to chair a university-wide Taskforce on General Education. The university-wide committee, which has broad faculty and administrative representation from the Colleges of Public Affairs, Arts and Sciences, and Business as well as the General Education Council and Langsdale Library, will make recommendations for improvements to general education programming in late spring 2016. The proposals for reform will be sent to the constituent college faculty senates and eventually to the University Faculty Senate and senior administration for further consideration and possible implementation in AY 16-17. The taskforce is carefully reviewing Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR)  as well as the latest Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) standards.

Dr. Sheehan is the Director of the graduate programs in Negotiations & Conflict Management and Global Affairs & Human Security in the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore.
