This report presents the findings of a visiting team charged with assessing Northeast Missouri State University's progress in 5 years toward goals from a new institutional mission and planning document. In particular the report endorses the 49 undergraduate programs and 9 graduate programs offered at NMSU each of which successfully attained the goals and objectives established for it in the original plan. The report also provides a comprehensive review of the Master of Arts in Education Program while proposing recommendations for graduate programs. Third the report identified key future challenges related to the academic programs with special emphasis on the core curriculum, active learning, faculties and funding, and assessment. The report concludes with suggestions for institutional enhancement. Overall the team found that NMSU underwent a successful transformation into a nationally competitive liberal arts institution. It has eliminated several programs inappropriate to its new mission, hired faculty with expertise in the liberal arts and sciences, recruited a talented student body, and documented changes in other areas indicative of its changing character. Appended is a separate report on the Master of Arts in Education Program. (Author/JB)
