National Foster Care Month

Celebrating Foster Families during National Foster Care Month

My first job after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in human development and family studies was as a housemother for school-aged children living in a children’s home in Lubbock, Texas. This was my entrée into the messy world of the foster care system.

Why I Teach - Amanda Bezet, MLS, Reference & Instruction Librarian

When I tell people that I’m an academic librarian for a completely online university, I often see puzzled looks on their faces as they try to work out what that actually means. The closest they can get to is, “So, the books are all online then? Cool.” What they don’t know is that it’s SO much more than that. They don’t know that I get to design innovative library services to reach our online students. They don’t know that I get to attend Dissertation Boot Camps and interact with our students in some of the most interesting cities in the world.

Why I Work at NCU - Dr. Divya Bheda, Director of Assessment in the School of Health Sciences

Under the current stressful COVID-19 circumstances, I hope you are safe, healthy, and socially connected! We all have a role in each other’s success and well-being, now more than ever and in more ways than one can imagine!

It’s Necessary, but It’s Not Online Learning

David Harpool, JD, PhD
President, Northcentral University

I applaud the quick actions of higher education in response to the threat of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Recent data from Italy, France, and Vietnam suggest younger, seemingly healthy students can be carriers. The health threat to older adults is clear and maybe understated to traditional college-aged students. During the last few weeks, on-ground higher education institutions have made the correct, although painful, decision to move online. 

Why I Teach - Vera Dolan, PHD

When I was a little girl in Brazil, I used to arrange a class of doll-pupils in front of me so they could give their undivided attention to whatever I wrote on a blackboard. Then, at 16, I finally had the chance to do some "real" teaching. Our school had posted an ad looking for peer tutors. I immediately volunteered to teach English but was sad to learn that another student already had that role.

Autism Awareness Month

Over the last few weeks, folks around the country have felt the disorienting effects of having their routine disrupted.

Suddenly people are working from home, going to school online, juggling childcare and household management with Zoom meetings and due dates. Instead of a morning commute, they are figuring out how to troubleshoot conference calls. Instead of dropping kids at school, they are scanning Khan Academy to help with 4th grade math.
