Andrews International Center for Educational Research ( AICER) invites students and faculty to attend a symposium on college accreditation on Thursday November 14, at 5:30 p.m.
Title: What Accreditation Means and What Accreditors Are Looking for
Presenter: Dr. James Jeffrey, Dean of the School of Education, Andrews University
The School of Education (SED) offers the most accredited programs of any school or college at Andrews University. Why does the SED hold so many accreditations? Because earning a degree is a significant achievement and an important investment for our students and their futures. Since so much of their future success depends on their educational foundation, the quality of the education a student receives, makes a huge difference.
Earning a degree from a highly accredited program, verifies that the quality of the educational experience students have received meets the standards of the profession. It also increases and enhances employment opportunities and permits entry to a profession through licensure, registration, and certification.
The SED holds accreditation from NCATE, NASP, CACREP, the State of Michigan, and the NAD Office of Education. We are currently pursuing APA (American Psychological Association) accreditation for our PhD program in Counseling Psychology. Accreditation informs the public that the SED operates at the highest levels of educational quality and integrity.
Dr. Jim Jeffery, Dean, has led the SED through three highly successful NCATE accreditation visits. As well, he is only one of very few Adventist educators who are NCATE Board of Examiner members. In this capacity, he has been a member of visiting teams for the past 5 year and has visited 3 Catholic universities, an historically black Baptist college, the Teacher's College at Columbia University and several other private denominational colleges across the US.
Because of his experiences, Dr. Jeffrey is in a unique position to explain why accreditation is so important - and what accreditors look for when they arrive on a campus.
Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 013.

This year's Veterans Day program sponsored by the Buchanan American Legion features a look at another aspect of World War II history. While American servicemen and women were fighting overseas, this area was playing host to hundreds of German prisoners of war.
Retired Western Michigan University professor Howard Poole will speak three times in Buchanan as part of this year's Veterans Day activities. Poole will speak at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 at the Buchanan American Legion, at 7 p.m. that night at Buchanan High School and the next morning at 9 a.m. to students at BHS.
Poole is a Sister Lakes resident and retired from Western Michigan in 2004. Since then, he has researched a variety of topics including the history of the Sister Lakes area and what happened when German POWs were brought into Southwest Michigan to work on area farms during World War II.
Poole's research has uncovered how area farms used German prisoners of war for farm labor during the war and what life was like for the half million German POWs shipped to the United States during that time period. He has also found information about a Japanese American internment camp in Southwest Michigan.
Past Veterans Day programs have given people the chance to hear about other aspects of World War II history with speakers coming in to talk on topics ranging from the role of women in the war and the service of African Americans and Native Americans. The legion has also brought in survivors of major battles and massacres to speak on Veterans Day.
Dave Pagel, our Michigan District 78 Representative, will be speaking at the next Adventist Retiree of Michiana meeting and potluck November 10 at 1 pm at the

*** For the latest update on the United Way Campaign 2013, CLICK HERE. ***
The campus community is invited to join the 2013 Andrews University United Way Campaign and “Live United” with our Southwest Michigan community. Even though our president won’t be jumping into the Andrews University Pool again this year (check out the video if you’d like to relive his Presidential Splash), we hope the memory of that fearless commitment on his part remains a demonstration of just how much he and we believe in supporting our community through United Way. There are many significant life- and world-changing contributions United Way offers in the lives of individuals and families throughout our community. United Way meets the needs of many people in all walks of life.
Participation and contributions from Andrews University are much appreciated and speak powerfully of Christian charity, human kindness and community responsibility - qualities that Andrews has always exemplified. Let’s stretch to the new United Way campaign goals once again. It is the right thing to do.
Keep in mind that participation is just as important as the size of the gift. We believe that with your help we can stretch to raise the number of Andrews staff participating in the United Way campaign to 150 donors and reach an overall goal of raising $18,000. By looking at our campaign history below, we believe this is a doable goal from a campus with more than 800 employees.
ANDREWS UNIVERSITY UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN HISTORY
2012: 139 people gave $14,300
2011: 57 people gave $6,933

The United Way of Southwest Michigan is in need of at least 100 volunteers for Senior Day of Action on Thursday, November 7.
On that day, teams of volunteers will go to the homes of senior citizens throughout Berrien and Cass counties to rake leaves, clean gutters, and apply plastic to windows in preparation for winter. United Way has partnered with Area Agency on Aging to identify some of our community’s most vulnerable seniors who truly need this kind of assistance. We especially need teams in St. Joseph, Dowagiac, and Cassopolis, but could also use one more team in Marcellus and one more in Coloma.
To sign up and volunteer, please visit United Way’s website: www.uwsm.org Click on the “Days of Action” tab at the top and click on “Senior Day of Action”.
The deadline for volunteer sign-up is Oct 18th.

Dear AU and community family:
Greetings to you from the Office of International Student Services & Programs at Andrews University. We have numerous international students that are here from a more pleasantly warmer climate and find these early fall mornings to be chillier than they desire. Therefore, they are requesting gently used coats, jackets, boots, scarves, hats and gloves. I am writing on their behalf to ask for donations of these items. If you were already planning on giving the items away, we would love to have them be given to us so we can make them available to our students in need.
As for sizes and gender, we will take any sizes and for either gender. We would also appreciate receiving the same items for children (ages 0–12). If you happen to be on campus, you may drop donations off at our office on the main floor of the Campus Center building or if you prefer for us to pick them up, please call 269-471-3310 or email us at: email@example.com.
Thank you all and God bless you for your ministry to the needy.
