In order to enhance and better assess the sport administration program's new undergraduate emphasis and current doctoral program, an external consultant was brought to campus. Dr. Chad McEvoy of Northern Illinois University, an alumnus of the doctoral program, visited in August. Dr. McEvoy provided several recommendations that have already been implemented, such as the creation of two new undergraduate courses. We have also begun to revise our assessment of doctoral students via a qualifying examination and yearly interviews. This project is still in progress as we implement other recommendations, and attempt to bring in another consultant.
