Background Statement

 Located in Beverly, Massachusetts, Endicott College is a comprehensive institution that integrates professional and liberal arts with experiential learning, including internship opportunities across all disciplines.  State-of-the-art academic facilities partner with private beaches and distinctive residential options to create a unique and fulfilling college environment for our students. Dedicated faculty and staff guide students in their growth and learning, creating experienced and confident graduates.

Endicott has a rich history: founded as an all-women’s college in 1939 by Dr. Eleanor Tupper and her husband, Dr. George O. Bierkoe, Endicott has grown steadily since. From a premier graduating glass of 20 in 1941 to over 600 in 2014, positive growth has been the hallmark of the College.

Today, the Endicott campus consists of 235 acres with 53 buildings and 28 residence halls. Our student body ranges from 2,650 traditional residential undergraduate students to 2,350 adult learners and graduate students at satellite campuses across the state and the globe as part of the Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies.

Endicott is a pioneer in internship and experiential learning. The founders’ vision of creating a college to educate women for greater independence and an enhanced position in the workplace was born out of wartime and a country emerging from a Great Depression. Today, these tenets are as important as ever, as graduates compete for job openings in an increasingly fast-moving marketplace. All Endicott students complete three distinct internships over the course of four years, providing work experience, building confidence, and making important industry contacts. Historically, approximately 40% of our graduates receive their first career position at one of their three former internship sites.

Dr. Richard Wylie assumed the presidency in June 1987 as the fifth President of the College. Under Dr. Wylie’s leadership Endicott has grown both academically and physically. Each semester new programs are added to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral studies in emerging fields. The campus has more than doubled its landmass in the past ten years and seen the addition of multiple new dedicated buildings, including the Manninen Center for the Arts and the Gerrish School of Business and Judge Science Center.


Impact Statement

2015 Recognitions:  U.S. News & World Report listed Endicott in its Best Colleges 2015. Endicott College was ranked in the top tier of  Northern Regional Universities at #74 out of 178 institutions in 11 states and the District of Columbia.  For the sixth consecutive year, Endicott was named a “2015 Great College to Work For” by the Chronicle of Higher Education.  Endicott won honors in six out of 12 categories this year including: Collaborative Governance; Teaching Environment; Compensation & Benefits; Facilities, Workspace, Security; Confidence in Senior Leadership; and Respect and Appreciation.

As of 2015, Endicott's Van Loan School now includes four Doctoral Programs:  the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership in Higher Education; the Doctor of Education in PreK-12 Educational Leadership; the Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Behavior Analysis, and the Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing.
The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) voted to award the maximum ten-year continuing accreditation to the Athletic Training Education Program at Endicott. Additionally, the School of Hospitality Management received final approval for the maximum six-year accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration (ACPHA). The National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the national accrediting agency for art and design programs, granted the College associate membership.  The School of Business recently received approval from the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education to offer Bachelor of Science Degrees in Finance, Marketing, and Business Management. Endicott's Undergraduate Course Sequence in Behavior Analysis and Autism has been approved by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board and designated as an "Approved Course Sequence." 


Needs Statement

§ The Scholarship Endowment Campaign has already raised $4.5 million of its $5 million goal. This campaign is providing funds which will be used to help students who find themselves in an unexpected financial crisis (death of a parent, job loss, or other catastrophic event affecting a student's ability to meet their educational costs). § Endicott’s Boston campus as increasing needs to support student financial aid and scholarship support. § Keys to Degrees, Educating Two Generations Together, Endicott’s residential program for single parent students, is in need of support for scholarship and programmatic funding.   § Endicott’s Center for Entrepreneurship provides training, networking and funding opportunities for students and alumni in starting their own business.

 

CEO Statement

As the President of Endicott College, I am very proud of the institution’s unique model of applied learning and mandatory internships, so important in today’s job market. Founded in 1939 as an all-women’s college, Endicott was the first college in the United States to require internships in every field of study. Today as a co-ed, four-year institution with multiple learning sites and many graduate programs, our focus on applied learning still holds true. For all of our undergraduate students, three distinct internships are completed over the course of four years. These include two 120-hour experiences, completed in the winter session of the freshman and sophomore years, and a semester-long internship, completed in the spring of junior year or fall of senior year. In connection with their internship experiences, students participate in on-campus classroom exchange, online threaded discussions, written assignments, oral presentations, blogs, audio journals, and portfolio pieces. The importance of the connections our students make with future employers is borne out by the fact that approximately 40% of our graduates receive a job offer from one of their former internship sites.

I am also proud to report that Endicott College has been identified by AffordableCollegesOnline.org (AC Online) as one of the Massachusetts colleges and universities with the greatest lifetime return on investment (ROI). Graduates from these schools enjoy the largest earnings gap between non-degree holders over thirty years, and earn more on average than graduates from other Massachusetts schools.

The national publication, U.S. News and World Report's 2015 Best Colleges, has included Endicott in its list of one of the Best Regional Universities. Endicott is a Tier One institution and ranked 74th in the North. Endicott was also recognized in two additional categories: as one of 37 institutions listed in the North as an A-Plus School for B Students and as one of eight institutions in its category as a 2014 Up-and-Comer.

Through the years, Endicott's rankings have continued to climb. We are especially gratified to note the additional rankings as one of the institutions recognized as an A-Plus School for B students and as an Up-and-Comer. These recognitions clearly demonstrate the College's Mission and its unique niche. Our successes and achievements are a direct result of the faculty, staff, and students who find personal and professional pride in what they accomplish.-- Endicott College President Dr. Richard E. Wylie


Board Chair Statement

As Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Endicott College for the past five years, I have had the unique pleasure of working with a College President – Dr. Richard Wylie- who is both visionary, entrepreneurial, and has a proven track record of success over the past 28 years. During President Wylie’s tenure, the College has grown from a two- year women’s college to a co-ed, four-year institution with numerous graduate programs, a recently-approved PhD program and more in the works, and multiple learning sites. In recent years as I served as a Trustee and then as Chairman, I have watched Endicott grow from a regional college to a college with international campuses, from under a thousand students to 5,600 students, from unranked to nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report, and from less selective to highly selective.

As Board Chair, I am also very proud to have been directly involved with the planning, construction, and opening of our new Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, which opened in 2009, and our state-of-the art Business/Life Sciences Center, which opened in the fall of 2013. Both new facilities have brought the most up-to-date learning practices and technologies to our students in the growing field of Life Sciences, as well as long-standing programs at Endicott in Business and the arts.

Finally, I am pleased to report that in the past five years Endicott’s endowment has increased from $31.1 million to $64.8 million, as a sign of the fiscal health of this wonderful institution. Overall, I have found my Board Chair duties to be one of the most rewarding of my professional career. – Thomas Alexander, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Endicott College

Programs

Boston Academic Center

Endicott College recently celebrated the 3rd year of its Boston academic campus, a non-traditional higher-education resource focused on serving new American populations and first-generation college students. The campus, located just off the Boston Common at 19 Temple Place, offers associate and bachelor degrees in Business, Liberal Studies, and Education, as well as five levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. The focus at this location is on workforce development, skills gaps, and ESL. The educational model focuses on a three-tiered approach starting with ESL classes (currently there is a one-year waiting list in the city of Boston); the Associate Degree Program which also supports languages; and the Bachelor program for more advanced students.

Similar to Endicott’s programs at other locations, the classes in Boston are small, convenient, and very personal. A full-time staff oversees a unique cohort-based Associate Degree program in the mornings; an accelerated, evening Bachelor Degree program (where classes meet one night a week); and ESL classes throughout the day. Although students at Endicott College Boston will not have housing options through the college, the built-in support model will allow students to find the right balance of school, work, and family. Endicott’s Boston campus follows the successful model developed at our main Beverly campus of providing comprehensive internship and career preparation support. In Boston, we will work closely with Boston employers and organizations to help our students obtain and succeed at internships and jobs.

As part of its commitment to access to higher education for underserved populations, Endicott’s Boston campus has strategically and purposely kept its tuition prices to be competitive at or below tuition at other Boston colleges and universities. Endicott’s Bachelor program tuition is the lowest in the city of Boston, and the Associate program tuition is also competitive.

To date, the Boston Academic Center has enrolled several classes of undergraduate, ESL and graduate-level students, and is providing academic and wraparound supports to help ensure the students’ success. Partnerships of our Boston campus include Catholic Charities, where we offer ESL training, and we have recently become part of Success Boston through the Boston Foundation. Other partnerships include the Mayor’s Office for New Bostonians, CDC of Boston, Year Up, and employers for internship support. Recently, Endicott College Boston received a Proclamation from the Boston City Council for our success.


Center for Entrepreneurship

The Center for Entrepreneurship, located in the new Business/Life Sciences Facility, combines the best of both programs.  The Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship is designed to master the challenges in creating new business models to gain competitive advantage. Students can apply their acquired skills in either the world’s fastest growing industry sector: small and start-up businesses, or in working with innovative changes in larger corporate venues.

The program develops the skills needed to gain a competitive advantage through use of new business models. Every established company is at risk of having its industry--and its own business-- disrupted by new products or services. Students can apply themselves to innovation within established companies working to create new models or in small and start-up businesses seeking to leverage new ideas. Possible internship roles exist in owner-operated start-up businesses and larger companies seeking new product or market advantages.

During the dedication of the new Colin and Erika Angle Center for Entrepreneurship in the fall of 2013, exciting kickoff events were held which attracted students and community members from around the campus. The highlight event was a pitch contest, Pitch It To Win It, which started with eight businesses competing to win a $500.00 grant. The final five contestants included two freshmen, one sophomore, an MBA student, and an alumnus. Aside from the pitch contest, the Center offered various workshops throughout the week. Adam Rosen, Graduate Assistant, and other student members of the FUEL program hosted a workshop to help generate ideas and explain the FUEL process. Entrepreneurship Center Director Brenda J. Smith taught a workshop on developing a business plan. Tom Grant from Thing Magic taught a workshop on how to receive funding from a Venture Capitalist. Bob Mitchell, CFO at Beverly Cooperative Bank, taught a workshop on how to prepare your business to receive funding. Finally, speaking coach Tom Kennedy taught a workshop on how to pitch your business. The Center also hosted a panel discussion featuring entrepreneurs spanning multiple generations. The panel members were Todd Meleney, an Endicott alumni and current Director of Sales at Surf Right Project, and Cliff Roth, former attorney for various MLB teams and General Council of the Maritime Administration.

Several students expressed interest in the first round of funding. The Finance Committee is made up of professionals and venture capitalists from outside the Endicott community (no faculty or staff).

 If the Finance Committee wishes to fund a student’s entrepreneurial project, they can do so up to a grant award of up to $5,000. Following the award, the student with the winning pitch is considered a CEO and begins meeting with the FUEL CEO (Adam Rosen) to define measurable expectations that will be reported back to the Finance Committee. Additionally, all students who receive any project funding are required to meet with the CEO Group, during which time they will discuss their challenges, strategies and progress toward reaching their outlined goals.
 
 If a student is not awarded a grant in this first round of funding, the Finance Committee will offer feedback as a roadmap for the student to continue working on their pitch. If appropriate, the Finance Committee will recommend that the student reapply in the future.

FUEL Program at the Endicott College Center for Entrepreneurship

Funding Unique Entrepreneurial Leaders (FUEL) is a new program at the Endicott College Center for Entrepreneurship. FUEL is a seed funding program for businesses run by Endicott students or alumni. Once students/alumni have successfully completed a rigorous screening process, they can be given up to $5,000 grants to support their business as it gets off the ground. Applicants must go through a rigorous process of creating a business plan and submitting it to the Center for Entrepreneurship. If the Center feels the business has potential to succeed, the applicant is provided with a student coach and a business mentor in their field of business. Next, the applicant goes through a Financial Bootcamp, learning the basics of how to create financial pro formas for a business plan. Finally they learn presentation skills from a professional speech coach.

When fully prepared, the applicant makes a presentation to a Finance Committee of outside business leaders who determine whether or not their project is funded. (If not, the applicant can go back through the process). Next, the applicant creates student benchmarks with a FUEL CEO and join a CEO Group. Currently, the first round of applicants are under consideration for the first FUEL grants.

Keys to Degrees- Educating Two Generations Together

Keys to Degrees: Educating Two Generations Together is a residential program for single parent students and their children at Endicott’s Beverly campus. Keys to Degrees is designed for academically qualified students, ages 18–24 at the time they enter the program, who are single parents of a young child. The Keys program was founded at Endicott College to address the needs of students who would otherwise be unable to attend college, due to the necessity of financially supporting and caring for their young child, and the lack of resources or other supports available to them.

The Keys program works with community organizations to identify students who may be interested in applying for admission to Endicott College and to Keys to Degrees. Once accepted and enrolled, Keys students live on campus twelve months per year with their children in a supportive setting that includes a high level of staff and faculty support and individual attention, to assist them in achieving personal growth, gaining parenting and practical life skills, and succeeding academically. Students enrolled in the program choose from among the College’s outstanding programs of study and enjoy the opportunity to complete an undergraduate degree in an environment that supports their special needs and the needs of their children. Program benefits include the full array of services offered by the College. These include:

§ Year-round, apartment-style accommodations on campus

§ Workshops on parenting skills

§ Academic support and tutoring

§ Career counseling

§ Mentoring programs

§ Endicott Internship opportunities

§ Pastoral and personal counseling

§ Child care assistance

§ Play groups for children by Endicott education majors

§ Student activities and cultural events

The program’s strength lies in its collaborative nature. Service learning and internships are hallmarks of Endicott College, and Keys students are required to both give back to the community and to complete semester-long off-campus internships that lead to real-world employment experience.

Budget  $752,000

Population Served College Aged (18-26 years) Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Program Short-Term Success  Short-term success is defined by each of the Keys to Degrees students receiving academic support, personal counseling and guidance, child care assistance, mentoring and all other program contacts/supports on a weekly basis throughout the academic year and the summer (students and their children live on campus 12 months per year).
Program Long-Term Success 

Keys to Degrees was founded at Endicott College to address a national problem - lack of educational and vocational opportunities for young single parents - one family at a time. 

Endicott believes that with financial assistance and access to higher education, single parents can make positive gains and improve both their life circumstances and outcomes for their children. A study at Cornell University found that with increased parental access to economic, social, educational and parenting supports, the behavior and educational performance of single-parent children matched those of children living in a two-parent family. Through a combination of one-on-one mentoring, special programs on topics such as personal finances, vocational opportunities, and parenting training Keys to Degrees at Endicott has the ability to break the cycle of dependence and transform these parents into productive members of society. Strong programmatic intervention coupled with campus housing and support makes the difference.

a. Program Long-Term Success

Since the Keys to Degrees Program was founded in 1993, over 35 single parent students have graduated from Endicott College and gone on to build a more prosperous future for themselves and their children. Forty percent of our Keys graduates are in health professions, seven of the graduates being licensed registered nurses. The balance of the graduates work in the fields of psychology, business, communications, criminal justice and more. Due to our success with the Keys to Degrees program, one of the first of its kind in the country, Endicott has been awarded two subsequent grants from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for national replication of our program at colleges and universities around the country.

Success of the Keys to Degrees Program is monitored by the Program Director and by the Program Evaluation and Research Group (PERG).

Program Description

Each year, Endicott is fortunate to attract a large number of applicants who want to fulfill their dreams with us; yet every year economic realities are making it harder and harder for families to help their sons and daughters reach their highest potential. In ever-increasing numbers, wonderful students - thrilled with Endicott and succeeding in their classes - are experiencing financial problems that seem insurmountable. As a close-knit community, we look for ways to help these students, thus the creation of the Scholarship Endowment Campaign. Our goal is to create a $5 million endowed fund that will allow us to grant $250,000 each year - over and above our yearly scholarship grants - to students who find themselves in financial difficulty. These students and others like them deserve our support.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

As Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Endicott College for the past four years, I have had the unique pleasure of working with a College President – Dr. Richard Wylie- who is both visionary, entrepreneurial, and has a proven track record of success over the past 28 years. During President Wylie’s tenure, the College has grown from a two- year women’s college to a co-ed, four-year institution with numerous graduate programs, a recently-approved PhD program and more in the works, and multiple learning sites. In recent years as I served as a Trustee and then as Chairman, I have watched Endicott grow from a regional college to a college with international campuses, from under a thousand students to 5,600 students, from unranked to nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report, and from less selective to highly selective.
As Board Chair, I am also very proud to have been directly involved with the planning, construction, and opening of our new Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, which opened in 2009, and our state-of-the art Business/Life Sciences Center, which opened in the fall of 2013. Both new facilities have brought the most up-to-date learning practices and technologies to our students in the growing field of Life Sciences, as well as long-standing programs at Endicott in Business and the arts.
Finally, I am pleased to report that in the past five years Endicott’s endowment has increased from $31.1 million to $62.2 million,as a sign of the fiscal health of this wonderful institution. Overall, I have found my Board Chair duties to be one of the most rewarding of my professional career. – Thomas Alexander, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Endicott College

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
