Outcomes are the “proof” at Newman


As the old adage goes, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

That works fine when measuring the ability of a cook. But what is the proof when measuring the effectiveness of a college education?

In many ways, the proof is in the outcomes.

Outcomes are the measurable results, achievements and other notable activities of current students, and recent graduates. According to many experts, outcomes are good indicators of a given school’s educational effectiveness.

In recent years, Newman University has gathered a number of these indicators, including test scores on professional licensing exams, the percentage of students accepted into graduate and professional schools, the results of studies such as the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), and other research.

In this issue of Newman University Magazine, you’ll find many of these outcomes across a range of academic programs, student interests, athletic endeavors and more. Look for them at the bottom of each page.
