Congrats to Golden Apple winner Phyllis Humphrey

Everyone at New England Tech was happy to see that Phyllis Humphrey won the Golden Apple award given by WJAR Channel 10 each year.  Humphrey is the Library Media Specialist at Cole Middle School in East Greenwich, RI.

Humphrey’s attended a conference here at New England Tech which was held for educators on the benefits of 3D Printing.  She took what she learned and determined that it was possible to add the technology to her library space.  No doubt the success of the 3D printer helped her achieve this prestigious honor.

Congratulations, Phyllis Humphrey’s!  Keep up the great work inspiring those around you.

NEIT Joins the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements for its Online Degree Programs

Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the university has been approved by the State of Rhode Island to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). SARA is a voluntary agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to simplify the process for students taking online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state.

SARA is overseen by a National Council and administered by four regional education compacts. The members of SARA are states, not institutions or students. Therefore, a state becomes a member of SARA while a college or university participates in the SARA initiative.  States may join SARA through their respective regional compact.

In order to gain SARA approval, the State of Rhode Island passed legislation to join the national agreement at the state level.  NEIT had to also participate in a certification process by the Rhode Island Office of the Commissioner for Postsecondary Education to be granted status as a participant.  Nearly 40 states across the country have earned the SARA designation. New England Tech is one of four Rhode Island participating institutions of higher learning.

SARA’s mission is to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines, as well as make it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate distance education work.  As a result, institutions of higher learning can make their academic programs more widely available and accept enrollments from students in many other states. All SARA institutions must annually commit to providing high-quality online learning opportunities to students.

In January of this year, U.S. News & World Report released its 2016 Best Online Programs and New England Tech earned the No.1 spot in Rhode Island for its online bachelor of science degree programs and was ranked 3rd in New England as well as 49th nationally. Sherman stated, “Earning this recognition is a testament to the important work that our faculty, instructional design staff and student services team have performed in making our online learning environments the absolute best that they can be. Now that our university is a SARA participant, we look forward to assisting students across the county to achieve their academic goals.”
