UMC celebrates online learning successes

by Crookston Daily Times

The University of Minnesota, Crookston was the recipient of five nationally recognized awards in 2011-12 for its online programs and the campus took time to celebrate during a reception this week. Paying tribute to the online accomplishments were Chancellor Charles H. Casey, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Thomas Baldwin, Susan Brorson, professor and head of the Business Department; and Director of the Center for Adult Learning Michelle Christopherson. Joining them in giving remarks were Assistant Professor Denis Maier, who teaches in the Business Department. Maier’s remarks reflected the sentiment of most. “These awards represent the work of the past for which we are now reaping the rewards. We need to continue on the path of success that has been established over the years,” Maier said. “We offer as good an experience online as we can, and we strive to make it as good as the experience students get on campus.”
