David Petraeus, U.S. Army General (Ret.) and Former CIA Director
We will close the 2014-15 season with four-star General David Petraeus whose distinguished military career spanned more than 37 years and culminated with six straight commands (five of which were in combat). He’s widely credited with dramatically reducing the violence in Iraq and for halting the Taliban’s momentum in Afghanistan when he led operations there.

Following his military service, Petraeus directed the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) overseeing significant achievements in America’s global counterterrorism campaign, pursuing an initiative to increase worldwide intelligence coverage and bringing about the new Economic Security Center.

Over his career, Petraeus has received numerous U.S. military, State Department, NATO and United Nations awards and has been decorated by 12 foreign countries. Today he serves as chairman of the Global Institute of KKR, is a visiting professor of public policy at CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College and is a Judge Widney Professor at the University of Southern California.

Our evening with him will provide deeper insights into the global challenges facing us today.

AICER Presents Anna Piskozub

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Wednesday, April 22, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter: Anna Piskozub, graduate services coordinator, School of Education, Andrews University

Topic: Exercise Motivators and Exercise Causality among Andrews University Students: A Correlational Study 

The purpose of this study was to identify the most important exercise motives that influence Andrews University undergraduate students’ choices and behaviors toward acquiring a more physically active lifestyle. A second purpose was to investigate whether Andrews University students were autonomous, controlled or impersonal in the regulation of their behavior toward exercise. Data collected from 316 undergraduate students was statistically analyzed by using descriptive statistics, bivariate and correlational analysis. Findings revealed significant exercise motivation predictor variables for three exercise causality orientation profiles: autonomous, control and impersonal. In addition, it exposed significant differences in the exercise motives and exercise causality orientation between the students from the School of Health Professions and other schools.

Horn Lectureship Series

Monday, April 13
7 p.m.
Seminary Chapel

The Horn Lectureship Series presents “Making a Future for our Past: Student Research at the Institute of Archaeology and the Siegfried Horn Archaeological Museum” by Robert Bates and his students from Andrews University.

Robert Bates, research associate at the Institute of Archaeology, is having a profound impact on the lives of students here at Andrews University. For the past four years undergraduates taking general education courses in history and behavioral sciences have had an unprecedented opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects at the Institute of Archaeology and the Siegfried H. Horn Archaeological Museum.

Under his direction, students are being trained and mentored in conducting research, analyzing artifacts, developing museum displays, photographing artifacts, collecting data, and preparing databases. They are given hands-on experience in examining artifacts ranging from the Early Bronze Age to the Late Ottoman period.

As of now, nearly 300 Andrews University undergraduate and Berrien County RESA high school students have participated in this project. The students are given an opportunity to do the type of research that is generally limited to graduate students, making an important contribution to archaeology, history and our understanding of the Bible.

Come see them showcase their unique and impressive contribution to the archaeological research goals of Andrews University.

Co-curricular credit will be offered. The event is free and open to the public.

Thank You for Participating in the NSSE Survey

Simone, Alex, Haley, Megan and Joshua wish to thank all freshmen and seniors who spent some of their valuable time taking the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).

“This semester I have been finishing up my research projects to complete my bachelor’s degree in marketing,” says Megan Reid, one of our NSSE student representatives. “I’ve come to realize firsthand how important it is to collect good data—and how difficult it is to get people to participate. I was glad to help promote a culture of assessment on our campus because I know it can lead to improvements in effectiveness. And I’m proud for the participation improvement we had this year with the NSSE Survey.”

To further promote participation in the NSSE Survey, the University’s Office of Institutional Effectiveness entered students who took the survey into a drawing for gift cards. Lynn Merklin, director, recently announced the winners: Jasmine Griggs, Jae-Hyun Joo, Brian Shockey, Tim McGuire, Amanda Phillips, Lindy Elloway, Jesse Snelling, Whitney Watson.

Our NSSE survey response increased nearly five percent over the last survey, with 34.8 percent of freshmen and seniors participating. Survey results will be delivered sometime in August. When those results are available they will be posted at

  Students’ Perceptions about Academic Motivation

 Samuel Adamou

This study investigates the roles that innate psychological needs and students’ attitudes have on student motivation.  The study seeks to explore how students’ perceptions of autonomy, competence, and relatedness play an important part in college and university students’ attitudes and motivation. Using the self-determination theory, this study is focused on how the appropriation process of extrinsic motivated activities is necessary and is a key to success. 

Course Type, Course Level, Student Age, Gender and Personality Type as Correlates of Student Evaluation of Teaching  

Fatima Al Nasser

Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) is a significant tool that most higher education institutions around the world use to help measure the course and instructor effectiveness. A review of the literature indicated that course type and level were the characteristics that affect the SET’s results. Also, the review indicated that student’s age, gender, and personality type were the student’s characteristics that most affect the SET’s results. The purpose of the study is to propose and empirically investigate the effects of the five factors on the students’ level of satisfaction with their education.      

Curriculum Design & Language Learning: An Analysis of English Textbooks in Brazil

Ellen Rodrigues

The purpose of this study is to analyze two sixth-grade Brazilian EFL  textbooks, identifying the underlying methodological approach of these textbooks and observing to what extent textbook writers are taking into account language curriculum design. The study analyzes how language learning processes are being incorporated into the foreign language textbook and evaluates the textbooks’ strengths and weaknesses, indicating changes necessary for these textbooks.

Capacity Building for International Development Practitioners
through an Off-Campus Program

Ralph Wood

Andrews University a Master of International Development Administration (MIDA) degree.
