Welcome to the fall 2012 semester! We are glad you are joining us and look forward to working with you over the next few months.
It was an exciting year for the university. We opened our highly anticipated new “Vertical Campus” on Wabash http://www.roosevelt.edu/CampusCommunity/Wabash.aspx
Roosevelt continues to grow throughout the loop area with the ground breaking of the field house http://www.roosevelt.edu/News_and_Events/News_Articles/RR/FA2011/RR-FA11-FieldHouse.aspx
Right here in our own department we have lots of exciting things going on. First off, Vince Cyboran, Ed.D., Associate Professor, will serve as Department Chair for the academic years 2012-2013 and 2013-2104. In addition to serving as chair Dr. Cyboran is teaching the Master’s Portfolio class and Technologies for Online Teaching in the fall.
Outside of the classroom Dr. Cyboran continues to stay busy, here are a few things he has been working on:

We are happy to introduce the addition of a new Graduate Credential in Executive Coaching. The purpose of the credential is to develop student expertise in the theories and practices of professional coaching, a systematic approach to improving productivity and competence. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their workplace performance and enhance the quality of their lives. Students will learn to use a set of methods, procedures and strategies to facilitate performance improvement at the individual and organizational level.
