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, those in one fully online program at the graduate level, one hybrid program at the graduate level, three fully online major programs at the undergraduate level, and those students enrolled as dual enrollment students. However, it should be noted that the fully online graduate and hybrid graduate programs are being phased out this academic year.

In addition to traditional undergraduate and graduate programs, LaGrange College offers three fully online undergraduate major programs, which includes a Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN – BSN), a B.A. in Sociology, and a Bachelor of Business Administration (with a concentration in Professional Selling).  LaGrange College also offers one fully online graduate program, which is the M.A. in Strength and Conditioning.

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.

The full LaGrange College mission statement may be found in the LaGrange College Bulletin.
