I got information today that Andrew Jackson University will be changing its name to New Charter University. This will take place September 19, 2011 and the offices will now be moved to San Francisco California. Everything will remain the same as it was before but slowly they will be going from text-book based to competency-based courses. This would reflect Dr. Monaco (new president) coming over from Western Governors University. So I am guessing this is a step towards improvement. They also assigned Dr. Dana Offerman as Provost and Chief Academic Officer. If many of us remember she is also the Chief Academic Officer at Excelsior College. They are upgrading the students services and they are making sure that student tuition will not be raised (well for now that is). They are also taking steps towards applying for regional accreditation. So New Charter University..... Would we call this another name in the Trident University world or might it actually sound good?
