You will submit your word document for Topic 1 Part 1 here. Choose a "real" university or college to use when answering these questions. I suggest you use the same university throughout the class. I will make comments and return the graded assignments to you. You should immediately incorporate the comments in preparation for the Final Portfolio. HED=Higher Education
1. Provide an example of a HED mission statement (in its entirety--no links). Cite the source location. Then using the course content, provide your interpretation of the mission statement.
2. Quote the vision of the same institution as in question #1. Again, cite the source location. Then using the course content, provide your analysis of the differences between the mission statement and the vision statement.
3. From the course content, give 2 external examples (not Carnegie Classification) showing evidence of the quality of a real HED university or college. Cite your source. Analyze these two examples--are they reliable and convincing?
4. Study the Carnegie Classification system. Provide the Carnegie classification of a real HED institution and use its Basic classification. In your own words, what does that classification mean?
