Jon Christy is the Director of Assessment and Institutional Research at Luther College. He is passionate about both general education learning assessment and learning ways for campus leaders to use the academic governance structure to create environments that favor learning assessment.

Christy became a Teagle Scholar because he wanted to be a part of a national conversation focused on using evidence to improve student learning.

“Coming together periodically with colleagues from across the country to enter in these conversations has been a wonderful learning experience and has greatly contributed to my development professionally,” says Christy.

Christy believes that the Teagle Scholar Program is beneficial for all colleges and universities. He says that the workshops, conferences, and activities are results focused; thus, participants return back to their home campuses with fresh ideas and actionable plans for implementation.
