Transparency by Design
Ashford University communicates its commitment to online education through its membership in Transparency by Design. Transparency by Design is a consortium of accredited colleges and universities aimed at providing adult learners with better information about choosing a degree-granting, online education institution. Transparency by Design provides adult learners information on program-level learning outcomes, how outcomes are measured and how students performed on these measures. Also, the site provides adult learners additional information on student satisfaction, progress rate, and other related data on each member institution participating in the initiative. This partnership provides additional resources that will help students make informed decisions about their education. This type of partnership will raise the bar and motivate all participating institutions to reach new levels of achievement. Ashford University looks forward to collaborating with other institutions on significant transparency issues.
