Auburn University is a Land-Grant University with approximately 25,000 FTE resident students. Auburn currently offers over 20 graduate distance education programs making it one of the largest providers of graduate degrees via distance education in its Land-Grant peer group. In the Spring of 2008, a task force was convened to review and recommend revision of distance education policies and practices in order to best position the University for continued success in distance programming. This session will describe the work done by the Distance Learning Task Force which included review and revision of: course/program approval processes; admission and enrollment policies; tuition rates and revenue distribution; credit and non-credit programming; faculty support and compensation; student support services; and learning outcomes assessment.
