Chadron State College continues to be accredited
Aug 18, 2017
CHADRON – Following a successful comprehensive on-campus visit from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), Chadron State College’s status as an accredited institution has been continued. Chadron State President Randy Rhine made the announcement to faculty and staff members Friday during the opening all-campus meeting of the 2017 academic year. At its meeting July 31, the Institutional Actions Committee of the HLC agreed with a peer review team’s finding that CSC met all the core components of its Assurance Argument, the criteria for accreditation, through the Open Pathways option. As part of the reaffirmation process, CSC also successfully submitted the Federal Compliance Review and the Quality Initiative. “The journey to prepare for the HLC comprehensive visit began more than four years ago in the summer 2013. The constant and relentless effort has paid dividends that was evident to the HLC Peer Review Team and stated in the report: ‘Chadron has good reason to be proud of its success in meeting the difficult task of making what is often thought of as a sterile planning a thing of the past and in its ability to make a plan implementation a responsibility that is enthusiastically embraced by all on campus,’” said Vice President of Academic Affairs Charles Snare. Nine committees and task teams consisting of several dozen faculty and staff members collaborated on various HLC documents, including the Assumed Practices, the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), the Quality Initiative, the Federal Compliance Review and the Assurance Argument. Because of the successful reaffirmation, CSC chose the Open Pathway option for maintaining accreditation, designed to give institutions the independence to pursue improvement projects that are geared toward needs and aspirations. “This is a milestone for Chadron State College and I want to thank all the faculty, staff and students who worked on the college’s reaffirmation,” Rhine said. “Clearly, the HLC process was a large undertaking for everyone on campus and I was pleased to see collaboration across so many departments. To see the entire campus working together toward a common goal is rewarding and I am excited to see where this momentum carries Chadron State College into the future.” Snare added accreditation is important because it provides colleges and universities a standard of credibility with their peers, confirms CSC meets professional standards, and the college remains eligible to receive federal financial funds. Chadron State College has been accredited by the HLC since 1923. According to its website, HLC is an independent corporation that was founded in 1895 as one of six regional accreditors in the United States. HLC accredits degree-granting post-secondary institutions in the North Central region, comprised of 19 states.

Weed management practice selection among Midwest U.S. Organic Growers

Organic agricultural systems increase the complexity of weed management, leading organic farmers to cite weeds as one of the greatest barriers to organic production. Integrated Weed Management (IWM) systems have been developed to address the ecological implications of weeds and weed management in cropping systems, but adoption is minimal. Organic agriculture offers a favorable context for application of IWM, as both approaches are motivated by concern for environmental quality and agricultural sustainability. However, adoption of IWM on organic farms is poorly understood due to limited data on weed management practices used, absence of an IWM adoption metric, and insufficient consideration given to the unique farming contexts within which weed management decisions are made. Therefore, this study aimed to (1) characterize organic weed management systems; (2) identify motivations for, and barriers to, selection of weed management practices; and (3) generate guiding principles for effective targeting of weed management outreach. We surveyed Midwestern organic growers to determine how specified psychosocial, demographic, and farm structure factors influence selection of weed management practices. Cluster analysis of the data detected three disparate, yet scaled, approaches to organic weed management. Clusters were distinguished by perspective regarding weeds and the number of weed management practices used. Categorization of individual farms within the identified approaches was influenced by primary farm products as well as farmer education, years farming, and information-seeking behavior. The proposed conceptual model allows weed management educators to target outreach for enhanced compatibility of farming contexts and weed management technologies.


Integrating rural livelihoods and community interaction into migration and enviroment research: A conceptual framework of rural out-migration and environment in developing countries

This article presents a conceptual framework linking perspectives from migration and environment with rural livelihoods and interactional community research in the context of rural out-migration and environmental changes in developing countries. Household livelihoods and community interaction comprise two core mediating factors between rural out-migration and rural environmental outcomes. Developing an interdisciplinary conceptual framework is an important way to advance migration and environment research that is built on knowledge from a variety of disciplines. By building linkages across different research fields, our conceptual framework provides an overall picture of the relevant mechanisms through which out-migration affects the rural environment. The framework has implications for theory, methodology, and rural environment and development policy.


Back where they once belonged? Local response to afforestation in County Kerry, Ireland

Afforestation has many benefits at the local regional and global scale. The local social impacts of planting new forests, however, depend on a variety of contextual factors and other details including who is doing the planting, which species are being planted, the location of the planting and, perhaps most importantly, existing land uses and their linkage to social and economic circumstances. This article presents case study research into these issues in two places in County Kerry Ireland. Utilising the concept of the differentiated landscape, we examine the somewhat varying social responses to afforestation in the two study sites in light of the different environmental and social and economic circumstances in the two adjacent areas. We conclude that a more locally nuanced approach to forest planting than has been common in the past could well create greater social acceptance of future afforestation and benefits accruing from it.


Bringing together local culture and rural development: Findings from Ireland, Pennsylvania and Alaska

The developmental trajectories of communities are routinely explained by reference to economic history, human capital deficits, or the structure of local labour markets. The role of local culture in understanding community development or in interpreting empirical research has received less attention. We believe culture plays an important independent role in shaping community debate and action. Framing community as an interactional field emphasises the opportunities created when people who share interests come together to address local problems. Interaction and local culture are essential parts of community and community development. Appreciating community uniqueness and local culture helps in the interpretation of study data and clarifies development trajectories. Research from Ireland, Pennsylvania and Alaska illustrates the linkages between local culture and community development.


Where is 'community' in community based forestry?

Community-based forestry and community-based natural resource management have become increasingly common terms in both the scientific and popular press. However, as with so many other concepts currently in vogue, rarely do studies invoking them incorporate either a grounded theoretical understanding or practical inclusion of the central term: community. Community emerges through communication and interaction among people who care about each other and the place they live. In its purest form, community is marked by its multiple and often conflicting perspectives. This article draws upon recent research experience with the Ford Foundation's community-based forestry initiative to illustrate the importance of solidly framing community in order to successfully link forest ecosystem management with community well-being.

[Women's Soccer] Trevecca Women's Soccer 2017 Preseason Great Midwest Favorite

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After winning the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) regular season title last season, the Trevecca Nazarene University women's soccer team have been chosen to defend their title.


The Trojans earned 123 points including five first place votes in the 2017 Great Midwest Women's Soccer Preseason Coaches Poll presented by Under Armour.

The Trojans will field a veteran squad of 11 seniors and first year head coach Fenix touts defense as the key to the success this season.


"The team has a solid foundation already," Fenix said. "On the field, we are working from the back, forward. It's really important that we have a defensive plan first and our offense will follow."


Fenix takes over after former head coach, Mark Foster resigned in January to take an assistant coaching position at South Alabama.


"It keeps hitting me, this is my first season. I'm so excited and ready to coach," Fenix said.


"Winning the Great Midwest tournament is the ultimate goal, but I want to use the pieces we have and get the maximum potential out of our girls."


The Trojans season ended last year with a 2-0 loss to Davis & Elkins in the G-MAC semifinals.


"We want to celebrate (the preseason ranking) but we also don't it to distract us," Fenix said. "We're focused on every day, not necessarily about winning, but taking care of what we need to do."


What's new?

This season, the Great Midwest has added four new schools that are eligible for competition in soccer. Lake Erie, Findlay, Walsh and Ohio Dominican join the eight returning members to make up the 12-team conference.
