Results

To date (Spring 2013), we have graduated 14 students6 students from NKU (Bachelor’s)8 students from Bluegrass (Associate’s)This represents 21% of the total number of students in the projectAdditional students are in the pipelineWe are receiving feedback which indicates that students are receiving important knew knowledge and perspectives that are positively impacting service qualityThese numbers need to be understood within the context of undergraduate study (many more SCH required for graduation than the MLS), and the fact that our students were studying part time.
