This spring, the George Mason School of Dance was awarded the 2013 Excellence in Academic Program Review. The Excellence in Academic Program Review is an award given annually to the department that has an excellent APR report as declared by the Office of Institutional Assessment. There are five prerequisites that the school departments must show they adhere to and go beyond what is required. These qualifications include dimensions such as “reflective and meaningful discussion of data and assessment findings” and “well-formed action plans based on evidence”.
The Associated Collegiate Press announced Connect2Mason as the 2011 Online Pacemaker in its category last weekend at a conference in Orlando, judging the site in a national contest that looks holistically at excellence in content, coverage, interactivity and design.
