Student Ambassadors 2016

What’s New? Online Learning and Student Ambassadors

Online learning has changed the way individuals earn degrees and the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions is at the forefront of that transformation. Online offerings respond to the growing community of working professional students seeking both new skills and professional development opportunities.

“ENHP’s active role in creating and successfully delivering online learning to our students is the result of the college’s commitment to innovation and meeting the needs of students and employers,” said Dr. David A. Goldenberg, interim dean, College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions. “Online learning is an important way for ENHP to share our expertise and offer students more flexible options to achieve their career objectives.”

ENHP currently offers two graduate programs online, Master of Education with Montessori Concentration and Master of Education in Special Education, and will offer a third starting this summer, Master of Science in Nursing. The college continually explores opportunities to increase the number of online offerings that will complement the college’s existing face-to-face programs.

This past semester the college also launched a student ambassador program to provide prospective students and families a connection to a current ENHP student. The program provides an opportunity for prospective students to learn about the college from a student’s perspective.

The ENHP student ambassadors are leaders in our college, demonstrate high academic achievement, and are engaged in their college experience. Ambassadors must be nominated by their department and apply to the program. Ambassadors are visible and actively participate in college recruitment events including Admissions preview days, spring lunches, and receptions.

Initial feedback from families about the program is positive and signals that our students are connecting to prospective students and families in meaningful ways.

The college continues to explore ways to stay informed and respond to prospective students. By expanding online offerings and engaging with prospective families the college remains relevant and responsive to the needs of our communities.
