LaGrange College has identified multiple measures for student achievement that are tracked in four primary categories: 

  1. Academic Knowledge and Skills
  2. Academic Progress
  3. Student Experience with High-Impact Practices
  4. Post-College Success

Appropriate thresholds have been set for each measure and will be given below.

The College evaluates each measure on an annual basis and publishes the results. The measures are representative of the nature of the students served, and the programs offered. The types of students served include those in on-campus undergraduate and graduate programs, one fully online major program at the undergraduate level, one fully online major program at the graduate level, and those students enrolled as dual enrollment students.

In addition to traditional undergraduate and graduate programs, LaGrange College offers two fully online major programs, which includes a Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN – BSN) and the MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Each measure of student achievement is also appropriate to the College’s mission as will be described in context with each measure given below.

The abbreviated version of LaGrange College’s mission statement, as found on the LaGrange College website is as follows:

LaGrange College challenges the minds and inspires the souls of its students. Founded in 1831 and committed to its relationship with the United Methodist Church and its Wesleyan and liberal arts traditions, the college supports students in their search for truth. An ethical and caring community that values excellence, service, civility, diversity and inclusion, LaGrange College prepares students to become successful, responsible citizens who aspire to lives of integrity and moral courage.
