Overall Evaluation of Educational Experience

Jim Lakso
Jim Lakso, Provost emeritus

Compared to peers, our senior NSSE results look better than the freshman results. Our students aren't "average" walking in the door and somehow transformed into something much better than average. If our students are better than average when they graduate it is because they were that way coming in... they just didn't know it. Juniata faculty get students to understand their strengths and to realize they're better than they think. They do this by both challenging and supporting them. It's a part of our culture I don't completely understand, but I am convinced it is real. Strategic Plan Link
