Letter from the Provost
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Mt Sierra College and to our new campus.
The College has been proudly serving its students and the community for the past 25 years. Today the institution continues to evolve, offering Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, Business Entrepreneurship, Network Communications, Information Technology, Game Arts, Visual Effects, Digital Video, and Graphic Design.
During the 2015 Academic year, our faculty engaged in program reviews. In 2016, they will use the evidence gathered from these reviews to update our entire curriculum giving each course standardized faculty created and approved outcomes, objectives, assignments, and assessments. This process provides the college the opportunity to gather evidence of what, how, when, and where student learning was delivered and assessed. When completed, each course will be technology enhanced with the addition of a Desire to Learn (D2L) component making it more pedagogy independent. Designing our courses in this manner gives you the opportunity to engage in our adaptable FlexLearn® environment.
I am confident that you will enjoy our new campus that has been equipped and designed with advanced technology to enhance your learning process. The entire student experience team, which is composed of admissions staff, financial aid staff, faculty, academic support, student and career services are here to partner with you to help you succeed in a timely manner preparing you for the competitive marketplace of the 21st century.
Like any successful partnership, there are two sides to this effort. I pledge that our team will be here to help you complete your studies and support you when life challenges come up. On your side of the partnership, I am looking for your commitment to manage your time effectively, engage with your faculty, and attend classes when scheduled to maximize your academic achievement.
You are embarking on one of the most exciting times of your life; please take full advantage of what the College and its various teams have to offer. Become an active learning participant in the program you have chosen, the various learning processes that accompany it and the many support options available to you.
My door is always open to you, please let me know if I can help.
We look forward to helping you succeed.
Jon Persavich, Ph.D.
Provost and Chief Academic Officer
