March 6—The Massachusetts Board of Higher Education voted today to begin tracking public college and university success in producing the “best-educated citizenry” in the nation, effective 2013, as part of the Vision Project. Specifically, the Board action will require the Department of Higher Education to “develop a plan for incorporating a civic education and engagement key outcome” into the Vision Project, which already includes the key outcomes of national leadership in College Participation, College Completion, Student Learning, Workforce Alignment, Closing Achievement Gaps, and University Research. The new focus on citizenship was suggested by dozens of faculty members attending Vision Project meetings at campuses across the state.
