Initial cohort draws 12 campus card pros from across the country
The National Association for Campus Card Users (NACCU) has chosen a group of 12 member card professionals from colleges and universities across the country to comprise the first cohort of the Association’s Standards and Guidelines (SAGs) Program.
NACCU’s Standards and Guidelines course is a tool that provides a comprehensive review for campus card programs. While the Association’s Standards and Guidelines were developed in 2011-12 and piloted in 2014, this is the first SAGs course to be convened.
The results of the SAGs assessment can be utilized to guide strategic plans, identify opportunities for growth, establish emergency preparedness documentation, and pinpoint weaknesses or areas that need further development. The development of this assessment tool allows for a uniform process that can be replicated to ensure that the cycle of assessment continues.
“NACCU is excited to move into this second phase of the SAGs program. As campus administrations increasingly request faculty and staff to provide data demonstrating that their areas add value in the educational process and enhance the student experience, programs like the SAGs course will become more important,” says Dawn Thomas, NACCU Executive Director. “The interest in the program for the first cohort was extremely high, and we are already planning for the second cohort the following year.”
The SAGs course starting this summer is a remote classroom experience that will provide step-by-step guidance, support, feedback and peer review to assist campus card offices in completing the assessment. The process will ultimately provide each campus with information regarding the credibility and value of their operation by giving a detailed baseline assessment upon which the campus can build. The SAGs course will run for ten months.
