Research

Createquity releases the Higher Education Resource Guide, a primer for incorporating Createquity resources into the college classroom. In the guide, we’ve compiled a number of our online articles that are relevant to undergraduate and graduate curricula covering the arts, arts administration, arts research, cultural policy, economics, and related topics.

Join us for a one-hour Research: Art Works grant guidelines workshop. A presentation by NEA Office of Research Analysis staff will be followed by a Q A session. The National Endowment for the Arts Office of Research Analysis makes awards to support research that investigates the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components of the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life.

Research: Art Works is a National Endowment for the Arts grant program supporting projects that seek to investigate the value and impact of the arts for individuals and communities. The proposed projects may use quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods approaches. Application guidelines for the present round of funding are now available on the NEA website. The deadline is October 10, 2017.

It’s no secret that embarking on a professional career in the arts requires a degree of boldness in the face of economic uncertainty. The prevailing stereotype of the “starving artist” indicates that people do so anyway – either willing to forego comfort for creativity’s sake, possessing alternative income (such as a day job or family help), and/or confident that their talent and drive will see them through. But how long do they stick with it before throwing in the towel – or professionally shifting gears?

This report makes the case that industrial design is an underutilized catalyst for growth for small and medium-sized U.S. manufacturers and a key ingredient in the future success of these firms. Derived from an intensive literature search and more than 40 interviews with people from the industrial design and manufacturing fields, the report explores why industrial design has become an influential factor in manufacturing, why it is underutilized in small and medium-sized firms, and how it is being used in innovative partnerships across manufacturing disciplines.

This report addresses how the California Alliance for Arts Education achieves equity and excellence in education through arts education initiatives and explores how to create a lasting mechanism that removes barriers for connecting effective arts education strategies to renewable sources of funding.

Arts Education Partnership

Arts and music scores rose slightly among eighth-grade students in the 13 western states, according to the results of an arts assessment from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. However, data show that arts enrollment, including participation in band, is down.

About CALCampus

Who We Are

Regionally accredited. CALCampus is a private, international, online distance learning institution, located in New Hampshire, which offers both college and high school courses solely through the medium of the Internet. Recognized and licensed by the Higher Education Commission – Career School Division of the New Hampshire Department of Education and accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), CALCampus has been recognized and accepted by the international community for decades as an exclusive online distance learning institution. Enrollment is open to individual learners anywhere in the world who have access to the Internet.

CALCampus was founded in 1982 as the Computer Assisted Learning Center (CALC) and has been teaching exclusively online since early 1986 when it opened its first online tutoring center for high school and continuing education learners on the QuantumLink network. It was known for years as the CALC Online Campus and adopted the name of CALCampus. CALCampus was the first to develop and implement the concept of a totally online-based school through which administration, real-time classroom instruction, and materials were provided online.

CALCampus provides individual courses for job skills enhancement, career change, continuing education, adult basic education, personal and professional development, undergraduate college credit, and high school prerequisites for adult learners. Courses are offered in the academic areas of mathematics, science, social science, humanities, business, law, and English. English (ESL) courses are offered for non-native speakers.

CALCampus issues a hardcopy official transcript of course completion with grade earned for each individual course successfully completed. For programs, we issue a certificate of program completion with transcript of courses completed for the program. Refer to the Academics page for information about courses and for prices of currently available courses. To register, see Admissions.

NAPS is a consortium of Christian Educators and Private School Administrators from across the United States and Canada.

  • Mission, Purpose, and Philosophy

    History and Vision

    CALCampus began as the Computer Assisted Learning Center (CALC), which was founded in 1982 in Rindge, New Hampshire, as a small, offline computer-based, adult learning center. The center was based on the vision of providing affordable, quality instruction to individual learners through the use of computers. In those early years, CALC also compiled and distributed public domain educational software and published articles dealing with the use of computers in education.

    CALC’s vision broadened over the years as the online world opened and we were able to serve students from diverse geographic locations through the use of computers and the Internet. In early 1986, CALC became a totally online school through its Tutoring Center on the QuatumLink network, and followed with structured courses in 1986. From 1986 through 1995, CALC Online Campus, as it was known, opened its online school on several major telecommunications networks, including PC-Link, AppleLink, AOL, Delphi, GEnie, and CompuServe. In early 1995, CALC Online Campus made its online school available through the Internet as CALCampus.com and after receiving regional accreditation, the domain changed to calcampus.edu. Since 1986, CALCampus has been in continual operation as an online school and we have been pleased to see the increasing adoption of online education by the mainstream educational community over the decades.

    Our Faculty and Administration

    The CALCampus Faculty are veterans in online distance teaching and are practicing educators and professionals in their fields. Some have been teaching with us online since the 1980s. Most instructors have a Master’s degree in their subject areas; some have Doctorates. Teachers in our high school diploma program core curriculum are certified. CALCampus is administered by a Director who has extensive experience and academic credentials in the field of online distance learning and educational administration. The Director and Faculty regularly consult on curriculum matters, make improvements to existing courses and programs, and develop new courses and programs to fulfill the needs of our students. CALCampus has a School Committee, comprised of the Director, a senior Faculty member, and a school Attorney, which communicates on matters of importance to the school’s curriculum, operation, financial matters, and student body needs. We all have one shared goal: to provide quality instruction to our students.
