He has also been responsible for campus accreditation, curricular procedures and interaction with the Indiana Commission on Higher Education, and administering the campus-wide general education curriculum. He established the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS), which engages faculty across campus in fundamental data research on factors leading to student success in college, accreditation, academic and career advising for first-year students.
