CSU-Global is committed to ensuring its academic programs provide a maximum value and contribute to students’ personal and professional goals. See how it’s shaping the future of education through its commitment to quality education with a career return on investment for modern learners.
As the nation’s first and only 100% online state university with independent, regional accreditation, Colorado State University-Global Campus is a leader in defining what academic quality looks like for today’s modern learner. The university’s work to ‘quantify quality’ in online education has led to a philosophy that strives for transparency and continual improvement. By utilizing quantitative and qualitative data, the university goes beyond the traditional metrics of academic quality of admissions criteria, percentages of tenured faculty, and other academic inputs to elevate and clearly identify the value of higher education for students.
This holistic approach includes a 6-pronged evaluation process of aligning industry-identified needs to Learning Outcomes, real-time tracking of Learning Outcomes, nationally-normed Educational Testing Services assessments of entering and then graduating students, Alumni Surveys, Employer Surveys, and third-party Income Reports of CSU-Global graduation cohorts.
