Leading the way: Post’s first M.Ed. grad earning national recognition

When Joseph Vaughn began the M.Ed. program at Post University he was a 49-year-old working adult, that hadn’t been to school in decades, and had never taken an online course.

Less than four years after becoming Post’s first ever M.Ed.graduate in December 2010, he is garnering national attention for his efforts in a leadership role within one of the largest school districts in Alabama.

“To tell you I was skeptical at first would be an understatement,” said Vaughn. “I guess you can say I’ve really climbed the ladder.”

Trip to New York Stock Exchange connects the dots for business students

It’s one thing to learn about a topic in a classroom; it’s another thing to see it play out in front of your eyes. A contingent of students and professors from the Malcolm Baldrige School of Business recently embarked on the school’s third annual trip to the world’s largest trading post, the New York Stock Exchange.

Yeimi Suarez, a sophomore studying accounting on the campus of Post University, decided to go on the trip to New York City after hearing what a beneficial experience it was from previous students who attended, and she’s glad she did.

Your future in Instructional Design & Technology

The field of instructional design is undergoing some very significant changes, and Post University is changing with it.  This fast growing field has actually been around for decades, but the way technology is now used to distribute information has dramatically changed and created an overwhelming need for instructional design skills. 

What exactly is instructional design?  It is a systematic approach used to design, develop, and deliver instructional or educational content to learners.  Some of the content that instructional designers create includes e-learning training modules, online courses, mobile learning apps, virtual simulations, instruction sheets, and job aids.

Jennifer Cancellaro, 94 – “It was worth it!”

As we continue our year-long countdown to Post University’s 125th Anniversary, we want our celebration to include not only our current students, faculty, and staff, but also the many alumni throughout Post’s history who have helped to shape the university we are today. So, we are reaching out to our alumni who attended Post University throughout its history— to ask for their stories and memories, of Post through the decades.  We will spend the next year collecting these stories through print, and audio and video recordings that we will share as part of our 125th Anniversary celebration. If you would like to participate in our “Post Through the Years” project and share your memories of your time as a student at Post, please contact Bob Sembiante at bsembiante@post.edu.

Don Mroz, Ph.D.
President of Post University
