Program Description. Participating Colleges will work with the CVC-OEI to support a fully operational California Virtual Campus Exchange (hereafter “CVC Exchange”) in support of the Prime Agreement between the CCCCO and FHDA ("Prime Agreement"). The CVC Exchange aims to provide a seamless pathway for students to register for, and complete, online courses across participating colleges to support accelerated student completion of educational goals.

Program Description. • What is the nature and focus of this program?• Is it interdisciplinary in nature? If so, what are the fields of study involved, and how will multiple units work together in delivering the program? (Document support from all units involved.)• Within what discipline(s) does it fall? What distinguishes it from other similar disciplines or from other branches of the same field?• Is it a broad, general program or will it focus on one specialization? Does it offer more than one option?Questions to ask:The proposed online Master’s degree in Software Engineering is intended to be a complementary, sister program to already existing MS Computer Science program at WSU. As sister disciplines, computer science and software engineering share the fundamentals of a computer science curriculum. Where they differ is in advanced, graduate level courses—CS focuses on topics in machine learning, data science, algorithm design, distributed and networked systems, human computer interfacing, pervasive computing, bioinformatics, and other topics of interest to the students. In contract, a BSSE program focuses on advanced courses in software design and development, software testing and validation, software maintenance, software security, and software management and integration—all specialties of high demand among the State’s computing and IT industries. In addition, the proposed online MSSE program will utilize a few existing courses from the MS Engineering Management program that are related to professional ethics and project management. It should be noted that software engineering and software design principles play fundamental and supporting roles in application development in many domains, including those served by computational and data sciences, such as health or environmental informatics, business analytics, and bioinformatics. Therefore, several of the advanced elective courses in software engineering will be of interdisciplinary nature with applications in business, biology, health, and environmental sciences. The proposed MSSE courses and degree program will be offered entirely online (distance-learning) through the WSU Global Campus. The online, asynchronous delivery mode makes the program equally desirable for working professionals looking for part-time, slower-pace participation as well as full-time graduate students seeking a quicker-pace to completion for a professional MS degree. The online MSSE degree will be a terminal, non-thesis, degree designed to address the...
Program Description. In 1986, Projet San Francisco (PSF), a division of the Emory University’s Rwanda Zambia HIV Research Group (RZHRG) began conducting research in sexual and reproductive health and family planning services for high-risk HIV populations in Kigali, Rwanda. PSF has worked in conjunction with the Centre Hospitalier Kigali (CHK), the National HIV/AIDS Reference Laboratory, and the Rwandan Ministry of Health’s Biomedical Research center to improve clinical care for HIV infected persons and address contraception needs. PSF established couples’ family planning counseling (CFPC), in order to increase reproductive health advances and uptake of contextually appropriate family planning methods. CFPC in combination with an HIV prevention intervention called couple’s voluntary HIV counseling and testing (CVCT), have been effective in increasing LARC uptake and reducing HIV incidence (RZHRG, n.d.). In August of 2017, PSF explored the unmet needs of postpartum family planning (PPFP), namely postpartum LARC (PPLARC) services, as part of a Bill and Melinda Grand Challenge Exploration Award and an Emory University Research Council Award. An interdisciplinary team consisting of medical professionals, researchers and trained nurses and social workers, developed and pilot tested an innovative evidence-based intervention that combined behavioral science and operations research methods to improve PPFP. The multilevel-intervention was informed by the Diffusion of Innovation and Theory of Planned Behavior frameworks which incorporated input from stakeholders, providers, community health workers, and couple/clients to address barriers to PPLARC use (Ingabire et al., 2018). Providers went through a 2-days didactic and practical training for IUD insertion and removal, mock counselling sessions, and had to pass pre- and post-training tests. CHWs in charge of pregnant women and newborn health from two-hospital affiliated health centers received 1-day training to discuss postpartum family planning, counsel and encourage women to receive PPIUD and refer them to facilities. The intervention included clients, supply-related, demand-related and sustainability-related activities designed to change the attitudes, norms and perceived control of clients and impact their decisions to uptake PPLARC methods (Ingabire et al., 2018). This formative work led to the development of a promotional and educational flipchart focused on PPLARC methods to be delivered to women or couples during routine ANC, l...
