Lessons Learned

Since the academy began in 2004, we have learned several key lessons that now help guide the program. In large part, these lessons reflect ongoing assessment of the impact and effectiveness of academy components. We request that you acknowledge the University of New Hampshire, Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Engagement and Academic Outreach, in all materials or publications that arise from the use of this Web site.

You'll want to survey scholars before the academy begins, after graduation, and at various intervals between to capture data that will help you improve the academy experience and build support and interest among faculty and institutional leaders.
