Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Monday January 26, 2015


The Division of Student Success has been granted General Certification for Nyack College’s Developmental Coursework Program by the National Association for Developmental Education (NADE). The official award will be made at the awards ceremony on Thursday, February 26, 2015, at the NADE Conference in Greenville, South Carolina.

A leading voice in developmental education, NADE focuses on the academic success of students. It seeks to improve the theory and practice of developmental education at all levels of the educational spectrum, the professional capabilities of developmental educators, and the design of programs to prepare developmental educators.

Achieving NADE Certification is a significant accomplishment. The process of Certification requires programs to collect a minimum of two years of baseline data, implement an action plan in an effort to improve outcomes, and then collect two years of comparative data, in addition to conducting the self-study.

Special recognition goes to Dr. Gwen Parker Ames, Associate Dean of Division of Student Success, Gina Jacob Strain, Chair of Developmental Education and Jodel Wright, Testing Tutoring and Evaluation Coordinator.
