River Valley Community College – NSF ATE: Cybersecurity in Healthcare Industry Evaluation (2011 - 2016)

In 2011, River Valley Community College (RVCC; www.rivervalley.edu), in NH received an Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a project called Cybersecurity RVCCin Healthcare Industry: Curriculum Adaptation and Implementation. The overall goal of the project is to create a certificate and associate degree program in Cybersecurity in Healthcare IT, initially at RVCC and eventually at other Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) schools.

Hezel Associates partnered with RVCC to perform an external evaluation of this NSF project. The evaluation is designed to assess the execution of activities and project goal achievement, such as adoption of the certificate and AS degree into college programs, faculty attendance at training programs, and outreach work with other colleges and high schools. Data collection methods include document review, interviews with project staff, and activity tracking. Analysis includes a preordinate scheme to assess qualitative data and descriptive statistics for any quantitative date. Hezel Associates provides an annual report to RVCC, which supports reporting to NSF.
