She is the IB Americas Relations Manager. It is responsible for the accreditation of higher education institutions in the Americas and works in close collaboration with accreditation specialists who advise college-bound college enrolled candidates. The article is the answer to a Facebook Q&A from our IB Counselors, Coordinators and Campus Relations Group. What can we do to get more US higher education institutions and higher education institutions to lend to SL grades?
The first and easiest response is that many HEIs grant SL loans - noteworthy ones are UT Austin (as part of the diploma). Florida's government agencies also grant SL credit - no restriction on diploma vs. one-to-one courses. University of Nebraska Lincoln and Omaha, Kent State in Ohio have SL kind guidelines and then there are many large liberal art schools like Drew University, Wittenberg University, Salve Regina University, Marist College, Hawaii Pacific University and Colorado College.
And in the state of Virginia, VCU, JMU and College of William and Mary have all SL credits for selected classes. However, it is the case that many institutions only award credits or credits for higher level work. That can be unfair to our student body who have done outstanding work in very strict standard level classes, and that is why here at the IB Americas Office we have worked diligently to inform our academic partner about the contents, rigour and profundity of our SL class.
The work begins with one-on-one college trips to educate admission clerks and works with lecturers and other employees to develop equitable and appealing guidelines. The Global Recognition Unit has created a number of outstanding ressources for those who want to improve their guidelines and recruit IB undergraduates. We are approached by many US schools and institutions of higher education because they want to get in touch with more IB undergraduates.
Working with them, we divide the available ressources on the IB Accreditation Resource and Documents Libraries. You will work in close cooperation with my bureau to organise accreditation meetings and influence state legislation to produce legislation that recognises the hardworking IB student's work in their own government facilities. In addition, there are very good endeavours to enable learners to advise themselves on this matter.
Last year, Dan Coast of Mount Vernon High School gave a breakfast session at the Bethesda office of the Mid-Atlantic consultant called Empowering Students to Self-Advocate for College Credit Recognition. Note that there is no single agency in the United States that regulates the admission of universities and credit policy.
Although this makes it difficult for our workplaces to influence politics, it is also the cause why the US higher educational system provides pupils from all areas of their lives with such a wide and varied range of opportunities. This means that the work of academic accreditation often takes place institutionally from institutional to institutional, from legislative to legislative.
Some coordinators and consultants have always played their part and now they have made us support them. After all, the pupils have a powerful vote on campus and we want to strengthen it.
