From the dean
The national and state political contexts in which we do our work are placing ever-increasing demands on us to demonstrate the effectiveness of our graduates. We are building a data system that will enhance our capacity to gather such data, but in the meantime, you are the best evidence we have. In my time at Elon, I have heard dozens of comments about our alumni from school administrators across the state who say, "Send me all you've got!"
Please continue making us proud, and sending us your stories of teaching successes. After all, it's not all about data.
