It was not unusual for one minister to serve four or even six churches, preaching for each church once per month, whether on the Lord's Day or on Saturday night. Men in the churches desired to teach and preach but had no formal education in the scriptures.&nbsp; In 1948 Roanoke Bible College was conceived to provide Biblical Higher Education to alleviate this severe shortage of church leaders.</p> <p>The motto chosen was ―A New Testament School&mdash;Set for the Defense of the Gospel (Phil. 1:16 ASV). Leading this effort was George W. BonDurant, employed as an evangelist of the Roanoke District Churches of Christ. Mr. BonDurant and his wife, the former Sarah Presley, had been instrumental in 1937 in organizing Atlanta Christian College in Georgia, where he had served as president and she as a dietician, and both had taught until moving to North Carolina. Mr. BonDurant became the president of Roanoke Bible College (RBC). A Certificate of Incorporation was received on September 10, 1948.</p> <p>In 1979, Roanoke was accredited by the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (now renamed the Association for Biblical Higher Education). President BonDurant retired in April 1986, and William A. Griffin was appointed as the second president. In 1999, Roanoke was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). In 2005 Eastern Christian College (ECC) in Bel Air, Maryland, closed. RBC received some funds, students, trustees, staff, library holdings and equipment from ECC. Mid-Atlantic holds the academic transcripts of ECC students and they are welcomed as alumni of the University.</p> <p>President Griffin served 20 years as Roanoke's president, retiring on June 30, 2006.&nbsp; D. Clay Perkins, Ph.D., was selected to become the third president and on July 1, 2006, began his tenure. After two years of deliberation and research, and in consideration of the desired vision and future for the College, the Board of Trustees changed the name to Mid-Atlantic Christian University in March of 2009. In Fall of 2010, the university reorganized its academic structure into two schools: School of Undergraduate Studies and the School of Professional Studies. The University withdrew from the Association for Biblical Higher Education in 2011 in order to focus upon its relationship with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.</p> <p>Dr. Perkins concluded his tenure as MACU&rsquo;s president on June 30, 2017.&nbsp; John Maurice was appointed by the Trustees on February 1, 2018 as the fourth president of Mid-Atlantic Christian University.</p> <p>Mid-Atlantic Christian University has alumni in 48 states, the District of Columbia, one territory, and 26 countries.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 03 Dec 2018 17:03:06 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/about About OIT http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/about-oit <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h1>About OIT</h1> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <p>The IT department is not available to troubleshoot generic computer problems.

We have&nbsp;<span class="s1">programs of study&nbsp;</span>designed for someone who desires to be involved in vocational ministry. We also have a growing list of programs for someone who desires to serve God in a non-traditional ministry setting. We hope that you will join us in the adventure of impacting the world by transforming ordinary people into extraordinary Christian leaders.</p> <p class="p2">The heart and passion of MACU&rsquo;s academic program is the four-year Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. With the realization that some students have academic goals beyond MACU we also offer associate degrees that can be completed in 2 years and two certificate programs.</p> <p class="p2">The four-year degree programs, the B.A. and the B.S., require at a minimum 120 semester hours of credit. The principal difference between the B.A. and the B.S. degrees is that the B.A. requires the study of a foreign language. In keeping with the mission of MACU, every degree program requires students to complete courses in biblical and theological studies. Students preparing for vocational ministry will complete a 48 hour major in Biblical Studies, all other four-year degree students will complete a minor in Biblical Studies. For the B.A. and the B.S. degrees, at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the required semester hours must be taken at MACU.</p> <p class="p2">Nearly all of the baccalaureate degree programs require a student to complete an internship requirement. Working with a local congregation, organization, or institution, the student will learn first hand with the guidance of a field mentor and faculty advisor. Depending upon the program of study, three to six semester credit hours may be earned.</p> <p class="p2">Whether it is in the classroom or through a supervised practical experience &ldquo;in the real world,&rdquo; MACU is committed to providing a quality academic program to train extraordinary leaders to serve in God's Kingdom. If you have questions or concerns about your academic program, please feel free to stop by the Academic Affairs Office.

The ALEKS Placement Assessment covers material from Basic Math through Precalculus and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. After the assessment, a targeted Prep and Learning Module is available for you to review and learn material, and to improve placement and eventual course outcomes.</p> <p>All students are strongly encouraged to spend several hours using the ALEKS Prep and Learning Module. Even if you have achieved placement in your desired course, time spent in ALEKS will better prepare you for your upcoming course and ultimately lead to better grades.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1327/2019-20_ALEKS_PPL_Math_Placement_Information_Sheet.pdf">2019-2020 Information Sheet</a></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1328/2019-20_ALEKS_PPL_Student_Registration_Instructions.pdf">2019-2020 How to Register</a></strong></p> <p><strong>First of all, RELAX.</strong>&nbsp; This is an &ldquo;assessment,&rdquo; NOT A TEST. The difference is that an assessment is designed to determine what you know. At the end of the ALEKS Placement Assessment, you will have a much better sense of your strengths and weaknesses in math. You will then have a chance to work on those weaknesses. There is really no penalty for incorrectly answering a question on the assessment.&nbsp; The most important thing is that you take the assessment seriously and give it an honest effort so that the assessment truly reflects your level of knowledge and math preparedness.</p> <p><strong>Be honest about your skill level. </strong>There is no benefit to cheating on the placement assessment &ndash; your only reward will be that you are forced to take a class that is too difficult for your current level of mathematical knowledge. Therefore, while you are taking the assessment, do not consult any other source for help (friends, family, internet searches, etc.). The purpose of the placement assessment is to give an accurate measure of your current mathematical skills so that you will be successful in your mathematics courses.</p> <p><strong>Who has to take the ALEKS Placement Assessment?&nbsp;</strong>All students who wish to take any of the math courses at MACU who do not have placement scores from other accepted sources (e.g., SAT/ACT scores).</p> <p><strong>Is there a fee for using ALEKS?&nbsp;</strong>You will pay for ALEKS with a credit card before you begin.</p> <p><strong>Can I retake the ALEKS Placement Assessment?&nbsp;</strong>Yes, you may take up to 2 placement assessments. However, to make each attempt worthwhile, it is important that you spend time working in your ALEKS Prep and Learning Module in between placement assessments so that you can improve your skills.</p> <p><strong>Are ALEKS Placement Assessments proctored?&nbsp;</strong>The first attempt is a practice assessment that is done on your own. &nbsp;After you complete the Prep and Learning Module you will come to the campus of MACU and complete the final assessment which is proctored.</p> <p><strong>Can I retake the ALEKS Placement Assessment immediately?&nbsp;</strong>You must wait 48 hours between placement assessments. There is generally no benefit to re-taking the assessment immediately after completing a prior attempt. Unlike the SAT or ACT, you cannot improve your results by simply re-taking the assessment without spending time in the Prep and Learning Module to refresh material that you may have forgotten or to learn new material.</p> <p><strong>Must I work in my ALEKS Prep and Learning Module between placement assessments?&nbsp;</strong>Yes, for 5 hours between the 1st and 2nd placement assessments.</p> <p><strong>Are placement assessments timed?&nbsp;</strong>Yes, you have 2 hours to complete a placement assessment once it has begun.</p> <p><strong>How long will a placement assessment take to complete?&nbsp;</strong>Placement assessments require approximately 90 minutes to complete, but the amount of time will vary by student. There will be a maximum of 30 questions.</p> <p><strong>May I use a calculator while using ALEKS?&nbsp;</strong>ALEKS will provide an on-screen calculator if you need one to complete a particular problem. Otherwise, you may not use a calculator.</p> <p><strong>What happens if I do not complete a placement assessment in the allotted time?&nbsp;</strong>If the placement assessment is unproctored, you will have to restart the assessment. If the incomplete assessment is proctored and timed, you will be given a placement result, but it may underestimate your true ability.</p> <p><strong>May I use any other resources during a placement assessment?&nbsp;</strong>You may only use a pen or pencil, paper, and the resources provided by ALEKS. You may not receive assistance from friends, family, other websites, textbooks, or any other resource not provided by ALEKS. Using outside resources may lead to improper placement and ultimately course failure.</p> <p><strong>What is my placement result?&nbsp;</strong>Your placement result is your percentage mastery on the final assessment. Course placement is determined as follows:</p> <p><strong>Cut Score</strong></p> <p><strong>Range</strong></p> <p><strong>Placement Credit Awarded</strong></p> <p><strong>Register for this Course Next</strong></p> <p>0</p> <p>0 &ndash; 45</p> <p>None</p> <p>Math 012 (Basic Math)</p> <p>46</p> <p>46 &ndash; 60</p> <p>Math 012 (Basic Math)</p> <p>Math 161 (College Algebra)</p> <p>61</p> <p>61 &ndash; 75</p> <p>Math 161 (College Algebra)</p> <p>Math 151 (Math for the Liberal Arts) or Math 171 (Precalculus)</p> <p>76</p> <p>76 &ndash; 100</p> <p>Math 161 (Algebra) and Math 171 (Precalculus)</p> <p>Math 181 (Calculus)</p> <p><strong>How long is my placement result valid?&nbsp;</strong>Your placement result is valid for 6 months.</p> <p><strong>Can I practice using ALEKS before I begin placement?&nbsp;</strong>ALEKS will begin with a brief tutorial before your placement begins.</p> <p><strong>How long do I have access to my Prep and Learning Module?&nbsp;</strong>You will have six months of access from the time that you start using your Prep and Learning module.</p> <p><strong>Is there an additional fee for my Prep and Learning Module?&nbsp;</strong>Access to a Prep and Learning Module is included along with up to 2 placement assessments.</p> <p><strong>What are ALEKS Progress Assessments?&nbsp;</strong>While working in a Prep and Learning Module, you will periodically complete progress assessments to solidify your gains in knowledge.</p> <p><strong>Does progress in an ALEKS Prep and Learning Module count toward placement?&nbsp;</strong>No, you must complete a new placement assessment to change your placement result. Click on the placement tab on the upper right of the page from within ALEKS. Only your placement assessment results will be used for course placement.</p> <p><strong>What if I do not place into the course I wanted?&nbsp;</strong>You can use a Prep and Learning Module to review and learn, and you may take another placement assessment to improve your placement result.</p> <p><strong>I did not place into the course I wanted. Can I take it anyway?&nbsp;</strong>No, you must achieve the minimum placement result to take each corresponding course.</p> <p><strong>What if I placed into the course I wanted?&nbsp;</strong>Congratulations! Continue to use your Prep and Learning Module to improve your chances for success. The placement result above is the minimum preparation required for your course!

We are excited about the impact our graduates make every day in 48 states, the District of Columbia, one territory, and 25 countries.&nbsp;Every alumnus serves, whether in the church or the marketplace. Deep in the DNA of MACU is the understanding that Christian leaders serve! Jesus turned the concept of leadership upside down when he said:</p> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-10 col-md-offset-1"> <h4>"...whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave - just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Matthew 20:26-28).</h4> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <p>The formative years in our educational experience at Mid-Atlantic brought us into a family that challenged us to strive for excellence in all things. No doubt, the professors, staff, and students helped shape and mold our lives. President Reagan attended a small faith-based college and as he reflected on the experience he wrote: "If I had to do it over again, I'd go back to Eureka or another small college like it in a second...There may be a lot to be said for those large institutions, but I think too many young people overlook the value of a small college and the tremendous influence that participation in student activities can have during the years from adolescence to adulthood...If I had gone to one of those larger schools, I think I would have fallen back in the crowd and never discovered things about myself that I did back at Eureka.

The course of study includes biblical languages plus a very rigorous course of study at Dallas International University.</p> <p>But consider what was told to one of our students, Johnny Scott, during an internship trip to Papua New Guinea (PNG). Johnny, long interested in cross cultural mission work, was trying to decide about going into Bible translation. Martha Wade, a Bible translator for Pioneer Bible Translators at PNG, told him, "Few people can be translators. If you can do it, you really ought to."</p> <p>MACU invites you to find out if God has gifted you to serve in His Kingdom in this special way. More than 2,200 language communities still do not have true access to even one verse of Scripture.

Applied linguistics uses the theories learned in linguistics together with studies in anthropology, psychology, and education to address real world problems.</p> <p><strong>Why study linguistics at MACU?</strong></p> <p>Ultimately the goal of the Applied Linguistics program at MACU is to prepare students for the work of translation the Bible into the language of people groups speaking languages that are not yet written. &nbsp;Our program can get translators working on the field one to one and a half years sooner than traditional programs.</p> <p><strong>What kind of degree will I earn?</strong></p> <p>A Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Applied Linguistics from MACU and an undergraduate Certificate in Applied Linguistics from DIU.</p> <p><strong>What can I do with a degree in applied linguistics?</strong></p> <p>Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to work in Bible translation, anthropology, linguistics, or cross-cultural ministry. Graduates of the program will be considered by Pioneer Bible Translators (PBT) and SIL International to have met the minimum pre-field academic requirements for field services with these organizations.</p> <p><strong> Do I need to apply for admission to both schools?</strong></p> <p>Yes.

Fields, Ph.D. </div> <p><strong>What is the goal of biblical language study?</strong><br /> Bible study is never complete until it results in greater devotion to God. Therefore the proper motivation for studying and teaching biblical languages is to know and obey God better. The intended result is changed lives, both in the student of the languages and those who benefit from that person's preaching and teaching.</p> <p><strong>So, who can benefit from studying Greek and Hebrew?</strong><br /> The obvious answer would be preachers. Certainly preachers ought to study biblical languages, but so also should teachers, youth ministers, and all who are involved in professional teaching, including music ministers who write and evaluate the theology of lyrics. Anyone who wants to study Scripture better can benefit from studying the Bible in the original language. Martin Luther, who lived during a very difficult and revolutionary time in the history of the Church, wrote:</p> <p>And let us be sure of this: we will not long preserve the gospel without the languages. The languages are the sheath in which this sword of the Spirit is contained; they are the casket in which this jewel is enshrined; they are the vessel in which this wine is held; they are the larder in which this food is stored; and, as the gospel itself points out, they are the baskets in which are kept these loaves and fishes and fragments. If through our neglect we let the languages go (which God forbid!), we shall lose the gospel.</p> <p>Wayne McDill, a teacher of preaching, spends many pages training how to go about observing details of a passage. Though he gives examples based on the English text, he assumes that preachers will at some point go to the original languages to check out and fine tune their observations. In his discussion of the importance of noting English verb tenses in a passage, he adds, Later on, as you research the original language you may find more subtle distinctions in tense which the English text does not convey.</p> <p>It is as natural for a serious, modern English-speaking student of Scripture to study the biblical languages as it is for a modern German-speaking student of Shakespeare to study Elizabethan English.</p> <p><strong>What is the payoff for studying biblical languages?</strong><br /> <a href="../../../academics/department-of-biblical-studies/biblical-languages-payoff">Check out this link for 16 Payoffs</a> for studying biblical languages.</p> <p><strong>What will I be able to do after two years of study?</strong><br /> You will be able to do more than merely translate. You will actually be able to study the Bible in the original language and develop sermon and lesson outlines in a timeframe suitable for weekly sermon preparation.</p> <p>We at MACU strongly encourage you to study Greek and Hebrew with us to the glory of God.</p> <p><a href="mailto:lmf@Mid%20Atlanticbible.ed" title="Send an email to Lee M. Fields, Ph.D.">Lee M. Fields, Ph.D.</a><br /> Professor of Bible<br /> 252.334.2080</p> <h2><br />What are Students Saying?</h2> Never has my mind been pushed more in discovering God's Word. Not only do I work on translating, but I see different angles from which to go about it. I am constantly challenged to consider new possibilities and see things that the English could never show on its own. Every time I am through studying a passage in the Greek, I have a deeper grasp of the passage as a whole. I am convinced some of my most rewarding hours at MACU have been with the Biblical languages. Reading the English New Testament now is a bit like watching a dubbed kung fu movie. I'm open for criticism/editing. <p>Stuart Paul (2006)</p> Studying Greek and Hebrew has changed the way I look at language in general. I now understand the importance of so many aspects of language when communicating ideas. In general my public speaking has become more fluid, but it has affected me most in my sermons. Knowing the original languages allows you to see what the author meant in a passage, so much better than in a translation. This makes it so easy to write smooth outlines straight from the text, and the audience can see that and appreciates it. Since starting my studies in Greek and Hebrew I have received numerous compliments on my sermons, and I owe it all to the Biblical languages department at MACU. <p>Brian Paris (2006)</p> I am a non-traditional student in the Preaching Ministry program at Mid Atlantic Christian University. I am in my third year at MACU and my fourth semester in Biblical Greek. Since my second semester at MACU I have been preaching on 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays at a small rural church in Halifax County, North Carolina. <br /> Since beginning my study of Greek, I have at times wondered if learning Greek was really worth all of the effort required. After all, there are many excellent "Greek tools" available these days for the English only student of the scriptures. My doubt was erased recently when I prepared my first sermon completely from the exegetical methods learned in my Greek classes. Not only did I enter the pulpit more confident that I had done all I could to "correctly handle the word of truth," but after the service several people told me that it was the best sermon I had ever preached since being at that church. I am convinced that learning the Biblical languages is well worth the effort. <p>Howard Guidry, 3/8/06</p> In my freshman year of high school, I decided to take a class at MACU. I didn't really know what I wanted to take, but then I decided I wanted to study Hebrew. I am pretty good at languages so I thought I'd give it a shot. At first, it was pretty difficult, learning a new alphabet and that kind of stuff. I have really started to enjoy it a lot after getting past some of the basics. It's pretty cool to be able to look at the Hebrew Old Testament and to start to understand some passages from it. It's just during my first year of Hebrew that I can understand some of the Hebrew Bible. I'm looking forward to understanding more of it after I take Hebrew 3 and 4. I highly encourage almost anyone to take Hebrew when they come to MACU. It's a great class and it's great how it will teach you to understand the Bible in its real text. <p>Ross Smith, 3/9/06</p> <p>Even a comment from a graduate who did not take Greek</p> <p>While I was a college student I did just about everything...I went skydiving, I skipped a semester and served as a missionary in Kosovo, I was a carpenter, I tried body building, learned aggressive in-line skating. Classes were great; I learned so much stuff and I absolutely soaked it all up. But when Dr. Fields suggested (as he does every chance he gets) that I should sign up for Greek, I laughed it off thinking that I could not learn another language. While in Kosovo I found out that my excuse was completely false, and I returned to MACU. With the way my schedule was worked out I only had one more year of college, and I told myself, "No point in only going half way through Greek," so I talked myself out of taking Greek, though at that point I did want to learn it.</p> <p>Ludwig Wittgenstein said, "The limits of my language means the limit of my world." I understand there are excellent language tools available to help bridge the gap, but why enslave yourself to the translators? ...Learning a biblical language closes the cultural, time and linguistic gaps between you and the scriptures. I can honestly say my only regret from college was not signing up for Greek when I had the chance, but that does not stop me from encouraging current Bible college students not to make the same mistake I did.</p> <p>Scott Montgomery (2004)</p> <hr /> &nbsp; <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 26 Feb 2020 20:19:50 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-bible-and-christian-ministry/biblical-language-studies Biblical Languages Payoff http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-bible-and-christian-ministry/biblical-languages-payoff &lt;!-- p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 11.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 11.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana; min-height: 15.0px} span.s1 {font: 10.0px Verdana; color: #3334cc} span.s2 {font: 10.0px Verdana} span.s3 {color: #3334cc} --> <p class="p1"><strong>What is the payoff for studying biblical languages?</strong><em><br /> There are many benefits for those who study Greek and Hebrew:</em><span class="s1">3</span></p> <p class="p1"><strong>1. You can study the actual words that the authors wrote.</strong> An old saying goes, &ldquo;Studying a translation of the Bible is like kissing your date through a screen door.&rdquo; The basic act is the same, but the sensation is entirely different. If you believe in the inspiration of Scripture, then you value the words.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>2. You have insight into options that cannot be conveyed in a translation.</strong> Our modern English translations are very good; so good, in fact, that even in translation we can be sure that we are reading in essence the words of God. However, no translation is able to convey fully the subtleties of the original language.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Sometimes English grammar is more precise (or rigid) than the original. For example, in the English present tense, speakers must always decide whether to express a simple present (&ldquo;he writes&rdquo;) or a progressive present (&ldquo;he is writing&rdquo;). The Greek present tense conveys both of these ideas with the same expression and the meaning is determined by the context. In cases like this, studying the original allows more possible understandings than the English-only reader might realize.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; At other times the grammar of the original language is more precise than English grammar. For example, in English, pronouns only have number (and this is confusing with the pronoun &ldquo;you&rdquo; serving for both singular and plural). However, in Hebrew, pronouns have not only number, but also in the second and third persons they have gender (masculine or feminine). So in Song of Songs 1:2-4a, the pronoun &ldquo;you&rdquo; is masculine and singular, and the reader can understand that the speaker is a woman talking about a man. However in verse 4b, the pronoun &ldquo;you&rdquo; is feminine and singular. Therefore, there is now a new speaker talking to a woman. In cases like this, studying the original can eliminate possible misunderstandings that the English allows.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>3. You can gain a better grasp of Scripture and theology.</strong> The more clearly and strongly you want to state and maintain a biblical doctrine, the more you need to have a grasp of the biblical languages. &ldquo;No person is likely to grasp the intended meaning of the Bible, on its deepest level, unless that person learns to read and, in some sense, think in Hebrew and Greek.&rdquo;<span class="s1">4</span></p> <p class="p1"><strong>4. You can understand English translations better.</strong> For example, you will be able to understand why 1 Thessalonians 1:3 in the NASB95 reads &ldquo;your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope,&rdquo; but in the NIV it reads, &ldquo;your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope.&rdquo;&lt;</p> <p class="p1"><strong>5. You can better understand poetry as the author intended.</strong> Poetry and all figures of speech rely heavily upon the structure, sounds and meanings of the original language that rarely can be conveyed in translation.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>6. You can better understand the literary devices the author used.</strong> These cannot be accurately interpreted from a translation without footnotes pointing out and explaining the device. In Jeremiah 1:11, the Lord gives Jeremiah a vision and asks what he sees. Jeremiah says he sees an almond branch. As a result of these words, the Lord says &ldquo;I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled&rdquo; (NIV). The English reader is left mystified as to what the connection is. The one who knows Hebrew sees that the word for &ldquo;almond,&rdquo; shaqed, sounds like the word for &ldquo;watching,&rdquo; shoqed. The Lord is making a word play.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>7. You can better understand the modes of thought of the cultures of the Bible.</strong> Studying Greek helps you understand the world in which the New Testament was written. Of course Hebrew helps you understand the Old Testament world. But also, study of Hebrew helps you understand those same cultural modes of thought that are found in the NT.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>8. Your study of the Bible is more independent &ndash; it is yours!</strong> &ldquo;It is as perilous to live on borrowed opinions as to live on borrowed money: the practice must end in intellectual or even in moral bankruptcy.&rdquo;<span class="s1">5</span> Some of your questions may not be answered in the materials you use. Furthermore, researchers may have motives that do not allow them to follow the same pathway that you may wish to investigate.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>9. You can use more and better understand resources that make reference to Greek and Hebrew:</strong> lexicons, word studies, theological works, grammars, concordances, journal articles, commentaries, etc.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>10. You are better able to evaluate the study of others.</strong> If you do not learn Hebrew and Greek, you will be more dependent upon the thoughts and ideas of someone else. Absolutely nobody is a totally independent interpreter of Scripture (including those who claim to be!). Knowledge of Greek and Hebrew, though, can make you more independent.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>11. You can preach better expository sermons.</strong> Expository sermons are those that seek to &ldquo;expose&rdquo; the meaning of a passage to the audience and lead them to make accurate application of God&rsquo;s word to their lives. One requirement of preparing expository messages is the exegesis of the passage, that is, leading out the meaning from the text rather than reading meaning into the text. Knowledge of the biblical languages is vital for exegesis. As John MacArthur says in his book on expository preaching,<span class="s1">6</span>&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">&hellip; if the explanation of what the author meant is missing, so is the heart of Bible exposition. &hellip; The unique contribution of Bible exposition is its substantial enhancement of the listeners&rsquo; comprehension of Scripture&rsquo;s intent. Such a service is the ideal way to cooperate with the Holy Spirit &hellip;. This is the best avenue for the building up of the saints. &hellip; The responsibility on the shoulders of one who preaches this kind of message is heavy. &hellip; He must be a trained exegete with a working knowledge of the biblical languages and a systematic method of using them to analyze the text.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>12. Your sermons can come to life with meaning and interest.</strong> Some people have the opinion that the preacher who knows Greek and Hebrew will produce &ldquo;a mighty dull sermon.&rdquo; The actual fact of the matter is that a preacher who does not know biblical languages can also produce &ldquo;a mighty dull sermon.&rdquo; Study of the biblical languages itself does not produce dry, boring sermons. Instead it makes the content of the message more accurate. Further, the insights gained from closer study can in fact make sermons more interesting, provided that a preacher learns in preaching classes how to present the fruit of his study in a way that is interesting and nurturing to an audience. Students who do not study biblical languages &ldquo;have settled for a comparatively dull, dreary mediocrity.&rdquo;<span class="s2"><sup> </sup></span><span class="s1">7</span></p> <p class="p1"><strong>13. You will find that you better understand language in general.</strong> One side-benefit of the study of the original languages is that it enhances communication skills. Students of biblical languages end up learning their English better. This helps them both to speak and to write better.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>14. You will be better prepared for further studies in graduate school.</strong> The best seminaries require Greek and Hebrew for their higher degrees. Knowledge of Greek is foundational for all New Testament studies, of course, but also prepares a student to begin work in the Septuagint. Hebrew is the best entrance into the study of Jewish literature (for understanding the background of the world of Jesus) and also Semitic languages (important for historical study as well as insights into Hebrew itself).</p> <p class="p1"><strong>15. At MACU you cannot get an F on your transcript for first semester Greek and first semester Hebrew; they are &ldquo;fail safe.&rdquo;</strong> This policy, unique to these two courses, is intended to encourage more students to take the languages. It means that if you are failing the course at the beginning of final week, you may drop it with no penalty to your GPA.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>16. For fun there are T-shirts available to students and alumni who have completed at least one semester of Greek and Hebrew.</strong> The front of the shirt has the first and last letters of the Hebrew and Greek alphabets and the choice from two designs for the back of the shirt is available. Orders are placed every spring.

Admission to most professional programs of study after the completion of a Mid-Atlantic Christian University degree is a highly competitive process. In addition to the selected program and courses at Mid-Atlantic, the successful applicant would need to be competitive in overall GPA, science GPA, MCAT/DAT score, number of hours worked in a medical setting and types of experiences, strength of recommendation letters, and interview quality.</p> <p>With the study of life being so broad, it stands to reason that biology degree graduates undertake similarly broad and wide-ranging careers. Depending on your individual interest, biology careers can lead you to study living organisms such as animals, plants, humans, or bacteria.

Students will study the links between biology, chemistry, and psychology, especially those involving the central nervous system at the cellular and structural level. Biopsychology students explore the intricacies of brain circuitry, learning how neurons and neurotransmitters contribute to normal and abnormal behavior. With this foundation, students can begin pursuing expertise in a variety of areas &ndash; studying the brain from a chemical, cellular, genetic, developmental, behavioral, cognitive, or social behavior perspective. This is an attempt to isolate our &ldquo;nature&rdquo; (our biology and genetic make-up) from our &ldquo;nurture&rdquo; (our environmental conditioning) so that we can better understand the roles that nature and nurture each play in the formation of our behavioral patterns.</p> <p>Our faith-based biopsychology degree program is designed to engage the area of neuroscience with a Christian critique, discernment and dialogue, thereby advancing MACU&rsquo;s mission of training students to be used by God to engage and transform modern culture.&nbsp;The current academic climate in the biopsychology field is strongly reflective of evolutionary and reductionist philosophy, which claims a naturalistic explanation for all biological and behavioral phenomena.&nbsp;At MACU, we want to join the conversation and bring the reality of a creator God to bear on the explanations of mind and body.</p> <p>If you are interested in the biological basis of human and animal behavior, and underlying psychological processes, such as learning, memory, perception, attention, motivation, emotion, and cognition, then you are well suited for the versatility of a degree in biopsychology.</p> <strong><br /><span>Bachelor of Science - Required Courses</span></strong> <strong><br /><span>128 Semester Hours</span></strong> <strong>Bible Studies Minor</strong> 18 Semester Hours <strong>General Studies</strong> 41 Semester Hours <strong>Biopsychology Major</strong> 45 Semester Hours <strong>Support Courses</strong> 24 Semester Hours <a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1395/BS_BioPsy_20-21.pdf">Suggested Course Sequence</a> <p><strong>Student Completing the Biopsychology Major will:</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong>1) Develop a variety of marketable skills, including laboratory techniques, Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) proficiency, American Psychological Association (APA) style report writing, collaborative problem solving, and public speaking and presenting abilities.</p> <p>2) Understand the bio-psychosocial behavioral model as it applies to human behavior, including perception, learning, hunger, reproduction, drug addiction, language, and emotions.</p> <p>3) Comprehend the study of animal behavior as a means for understanding human behavior, and as a tool for behavioral ecologists, wildlife managers, and domestic animal caregivers.</p> <p>4) Acquire basic foundational knowledge of Biology and Psychology programs and, depending on the selection of electives, be prepared to go on to graduate studies in Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Ecology, or other related disciplines.</p> <p>5) Cultivate the critical thinking and research methods necessary to develop, test, and evaluate hypotheses using the scientific method.</p> <p>6) Articulate how faith connects to Biology and Psychology and to potential career options in either discipline.</p> &nbsp;

While ministry is challenging (to say the least), it is a unique privilege whose rewards are the very opposite of a dead end. &nbsp;Ministry is a call from God to champion the life-changing message and person of Jesus Christ. Have you heard that Call? &nbsp;The Christian Ministry degree at MACU seeks to challenge and prepare men and women for a variety of roles in the church. &nbsp;The goal is to provide biblical knowledge with practical ministry skills, that can be united with the call from God, as Luke writes, to serve God's purposes in your generation (Acts 13:36). &nbsp; <p><a href="http://go.macuniversity.edu/" title="Click for more information">Click here to Request more information about this program</a></p> <p><a href="../../ugapplications/new" title="Apply Now"><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/1457/el_applytoday.png" alt="Apply Today button" title="el_applytoday.png (100x30)px" width="100" height="30" /></a></p> <br /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Students successfully completing the Christian Ministry major will:</strong></p> <p>&nbsp; 1) reflect upon their personal walk with God and gifts for ministry;</p> <p>&nbsp; 2) develop skills necessary for effective communication of God&rsquo;s word;</p> <p>&nbsp; 3) demonstrate knowledge of effective Christian leadership;</p> <p>&nbsp; 4) understand and apply ministry skills necessary to fulfill their calling;</p> <p>&nbsp; 5) value the role of career Christian ministry and grasp their individual contribution to this work.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <br /><span><strong>Required Courses</strong></span> <br /><span><strong>-</strong></span> <br /><span><strong>120/121 Semester Hours</strong></span> <strong>General Studies</strong> - 37/38 Semester Hours <strong>Biblical Studies Minor</strong> - 18 Semester Hours <strong>Support Courses</strong> - 12 Semester Hours <strong>Christian Ministry Major</strong> - 36 Semester Hours <strong>Open Electives</strong> - 17 Semester Hours <a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1418/SPS_ChristianMin_20-21.pdf">Suggested Sequence of Courses</a> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> &nbsp; &nbsp; Fri, 13 Mar 2020 14:41:25 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/school-of-professional-studies/christian-ministry Church Relations http://www.macuniversity.edu/support/church-relations <p>Mid-Atlantic Christian University exists to support and partner with Christians and churches for the advancement of the Gospel.

He had been<strong> </strong>a successful minister in Brazil for 15 years before coming to the United States in 1993. His last ministry, in the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area, took place in a church that grew from 650 to 2,500 in a 5-year period. Dr. Divino has served God in His Church in Brazil as: Editor of Bible School Lessons Publication (1984-1993), General Director of National Youth Department (1977-1978), District Superintendent (1984-1993), General Secretary of Administration (1988-1992), Professor of ICS at the Centro de Forma&ccedil;&atilde;o Teol&oacute;gica [Theological Formation Center] and an Honorary Member of the AEVB&mdash;Associa&ccedil;&atilde;o Evang&eacute;lica Brasileira [Brazilian Evangelical Association] (1992).</p> <p>After finishing his graduate studies at Emmanuel, Dr. Divino felt called by God to minister to the Portuguese-speaking people who live in America. In association with the Hisportic Christian Mission and the Orchard Group [ex-Go Ye Chapel Mission], and with the support from several Christian churches from East Tennessee, he planted the Antioch Christian Church in Port Chester&mdash;in the New York City metropolitan area. In June of 2003 Dr. Divino left the Antioch Christian Church to assume the position of ICS Professor at the Crossroads College at Rochester, Minnesota. On December 2010, he accepted the position of Vice-President of Academics with the same college.</p> <p>Dr. Divino has been a member of the NACC [North American Christian Convention] Continuation Committee (1999-2001; 2004-2006; 2007-2010) and continues to serve as a chaplain with the United Chaplains State of New York, Inc. (2002-present). Dr. Divino has been a delegate representing his home country of Brazil in three different mission conferences in Temuco (Chile), Quito (Ecuador), and S&atilde;o Paulo (Brazil). In 2004, Dr. Divino delivered the Forrest F. Reed Lecture, [<em>Dynamics of Unity and Diversity in Congregational Ministry from an Ethnic Perspective</em>] sponsored by the Disciples Historical Society at the Phillips Theological Seminary, in Tulsa, Oklahoma<em>.&nbsp;</em>He has published numerous popular level articles in such publications as&nbsp;<em>The Lookout</em>&nbsp;and <em>Christian Standard</em>. He is a regular presenter of workshops on topics related to cross-cultural ministry at state and national conferences/conventions.</p> <p>Dr. Divino has a passion for missions. He has led numerous short-term mission trips to such places as India, Philippines and multiple African nations. He takes his cross-cultural relationships seriously, having contacts in many parts of the world, to where he usually takes his students.</p> Tue, 10 Mar 2020 20:11:54 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/faculty-and-staff-directory/claudio-d-davino Clery Act http://www.macuniversity.edu/safety/clery-act <p><span> </span></p> <p>Originally known as the Campus Security Act, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC &sect; 1092(f)) is a federal law that requires U.S. universities to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

Approximately half of the students here are considered "adult learners" - men and women who have decided to start or resume a degree program at a later point in life, not coming here directly from high school.</p> <p class="p1">We want our campus to feel as much like home as possible. As an adult learner, we would like you to explore and utilize all that our campus has to offer.</p> <p class="p1">For adult learners and commuters, MACU provides many amenities:</p> <p class="p2"><strong><img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/217/adult_learner_2_small.jpg" alt="Campus Housing" title="Campus Housing" width="225" height="125" />Campus Housing</strong></p> <p class="p1">For those who want to relocate to pursue an education here at MACU, the University has several different housing options. From our smaller apartments to our larger Myers Village townhomes, we have several alternatives to accommodate the needs of our adult learners.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Student Lounges</strong></p> <p class="p1">Conveniently located in our main educational building, Heritage Hall hosts our newest student lounge. Just outside of the dining hall, students can purchase a cup of Starbucks coffee throughout the day, study, use the internet, and take a break from their studies. It is also a great place to catch up with friends in between classes. There are also student lounges found on each floor of Pearl A. Presley and Harold C. Turner Residence Halls. The lounges in Presley and Turner Halls also offer vending machines, televisions, and arcade games. There is also a relaxing lounge in our Welcome Center that is available to all students for social events, academic study or to grab a free cup of coffee. Our dorm lounges have water-front views and offer a place to study, rest or meditate.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Dining</strong></p> <p class="p1">There's no need to pack lunch or travel off campus at meal times. Adult learners can dine in our dining hall if they desire, and meals can be purchased as needed, or meal plan cards can be purchased for reduced pricing. Vending machines are also available in several locations around campus for convenience.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Fitness Center</strong></p> <p class="p1">Escape from classes and exercise in our fitness center located in Turner Hall.

The Watson-Griffith Library is a terrific place to study, work on assignments, or just take a reading break. Our library offers computer access, wireless internet connection, and numerous academic resources; all with a scenic view of the waterfront.</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Activities</strong></p> <p class="p1">Adult learners are invited to participate in any of our intramural sports and Student Life events scheduled throughout the year. We also provide events that are especially geared toward our adult learners, and also like to encourage all of our students to stay involved in other campus events. Each week offers a variety of activities- with open gym nights for soccer, volleyball, and basketball; and social activities planned by our Student Life Department.

The Counseling Center is dedicated to providing quality, short-term, mental health counseling services at no cost for MACU students.&nbsp; MACU Counseling Center provides assessments, brief therapy, and community referrals.</p> <h2>What to expect:</h2> <p>The first sessions consist of completing a client history, reasons for coming to therapy, and a discussion&nbsp;of treatment goals.&nbsp;&nbsp;Subsequent sessions will be centered on assisting you in achieving your treatment goals.&nbsp; Your counselor will strive to provide non-judgmental environment where you can feel safe to address issues including, but not limited to relationship concerns, depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss, school or work struggles, personal wellness, and self-esteem.&nbsp;</p> <h2>Confidentiality</h2> <p>In regards to the community and the students, confidentiality means that clinical materials, personal information and issues discussed in therapy will not be disclosed to any other office or individual unless you have signed a written release for this to occur. As MACU students, your contact with the Counseling Center is confidential and not part of your academic record.</p> <p>There are, however, exceptions to confidentiality. Some of the exceptions to confidentiality counselors are required by law to report to the proper authorities are all cases in which there is potential harm to yourself or others, instances of suspected child abuse or neglect, elder abuse, and as a result of a court order. Our overall goal is to make this a place where you will feel safe to talk about personal concerns and to assist you toward emotional healing.</p> Mon, 15 Jul 2019 10:24:43 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/student-life/counseling Counseling and Psychology http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-marketplace-ministry/counseling-and-psychology <p><strong>Welcome to MACU's Counseling and Psychology Program Page!</strong><br /><br />Proverbs 15:22 says, "Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed." (NASB) Unfortunately, in our fractured world people are bombarded with often confusing and ungodly counsel and advice. There is a desperate need for Christian people who are trained to assist these people. Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) is one of the few schools that offers an undergraduate program that includes a variety of counseling courses in addition to psychology. Many of our graduates have found our program to be excellent preparation for graduate school, while others have found the program to help them be better servants in the local church.

MACU seeks to help students value God's Word as a central focal point by requiring all students who earn a degree to complete a minimum of 18 hours in biblical and theological studies. Jesus, also emphasized that Christian ministry is to be done as service. Christian greatness is measured by the quality of servanthood that a disciple demonstrates (Matthew 20:26).

In accordance with these laws, no qualified individual shall unlawfully be denied access to or participation in any services, programs, or activities of Mid-Atlantic Christian University on the basis of his or her disability. These laws require institutions of higher learning to provide reasonable accommodations for the needs of qualified students as they pursue postsecondary education.</p> <p>A student is considered a person with a disability, eligible for protection under the laws, if the student has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Disabilities include impairments caused by accident, trauma, genetics, or disease that substantially limit major life activities such as seeing, hearing, speaking, walking, breathing, performing manual tasks, learning, caring for oneself, and working. Disabling conditions include epilepsy; paralysis (e.g., cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis); HIV infection; AIDS; a substantial hearing or visual impairment; intellectual disability; psychiatric disability; cancer; heart disease; diabetes; or a specific learning disability. Conditions not considered a disability include minor, non-chronic conditions of short duration, such as a concussion, sprain, broken limb, or the flu.</p> <p>To ensure accessibility for students with disabilities, the University provides reasonable accommodations through Learning Enhancement Services. The University accepts students who meet its admission requirements without regard to disability. To ensure nondiscrimination, students must complete all prerequisites for admission before requesting assistance from Learning Enhancement Services.</p> <h1>Requesting Accommodations</h1> <p>On behalf of the University, Learning Enhancement Services seeks to eliminate the barriers encountered by students with disabilities and to work with them to achieve and maintain their autonomy. The University follows a self-advocacy approach, which means that students are responsible for disclosing a disability and requesting accommodations. To receive reasonable accommodations, students with a documented disability must submit a request to the Director of Learning Enhancement Services&nbsp;within the first two weeks of the semester. First-time students who desire reasonable accommodations should submit their requests soon after they are accepted so that a plan can be devised before the start of the semester.</p> <p>Current students who discover the need for accommodations may submit a request at any time during their academic progress but are encouraged to do so as early in the semester as possible. Students who have already received accommodations do not need to complete the process more than once, but at the beginning of each semester such students should notify Learning Enhancement Services to request that the accommodations be continued or modified.</p> <p>With the Request for Reasonable Accommodations, students must submit current&nbsp;documentation&nbsp;from a physician, psychologist, or appropriate professional person&nbsp;defining and verifying the student&rsquo;s disability. Each document must include the name, title, and professional credentials of the evaluator, including information about licenses or certifications. The documentation must adequately verify the nature and extent of the student&rsquo;s disability in accordance with current professional standards and assessment tools. All documentation must clearly substantiate the need for each of the student&rsquo;s specific accommodation requests. For example, if academic accommodations are requested, learning must be one of the major life activities substantially limited.</p> <p>Students requesting accommodations for multiple disabilities must provide documentation for each of them. The diagnosis must have been made or confirmed in the last three years. If the proper documentation appears on either an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan stating services that the student has received in high school or other educational institution, it may be used for documentation. If the initial documentation is incomplete or inadequate to determine the needs of the student, Learning Enhancement Services may request additional documentation.</p> <p>On the request form, the student must provide a list of the accommodations that the student believes will help with current courses. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, activity, assessment, test, or facility that enables a qualified individual with a disability to have an equal opportunity to attain the same level of performance or to enjoy the same benefits and privileges that are available to an individual without a disability.</p> <p><span><strong>Contact</strong>:</span> Kathy Smith, Director of Learning Enhancement Services<br />kathy.smith@macuniversity.edu<br />252-334-2024</p> <h1>Definition of Disability</h1> <p>A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of the individual.</p> <p>1. Major Life Activities: The phrase &ldquo;major life activities&rdquo; refers to normal functions such as caring for one&rsquo;s self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working.</p> <p>2. Physical Impairment: A physical impairment includes any physiological disorder or condition, cosmetic disfigurement, or anatomical loss affecting one or more of the following body systems: neurological, musculoskeletal, special sense organs, respiratory and speech organs, cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, genitourinary, hemic and lymphatic, skin and endocrine.</p> <p>3. Mental Impairment: A mental impairment includes any mental or psychological disorder such as organic brain syndrome, emotional or mental illness, and specific learning disabilities.</p> <p>4. Learning disabilities: A learning disability is a generic term that refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders manifested by significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, or mathematical abilities. These disorders occur in persons of average to very superior intelligence and are presumed to be due to central nervous system dysfunction.</p> <p>Specific disabilities include, but are not limited to, the following: blindness or visual impairment; chronic illnesses; psychiatric and emotional disabilities (ADHD, anxiety and related disorders, depression, etc.); deafness or hearing impairments; epilepsy or seizure disorders; orthopedic impairment; specific learning disability; speech disorder; spinal cord or traumatic brain injury; and neurological and neuro-muscular disorders.</p> <h1>Accommodations in Higher Education</h1> <p>Federal regulations allow three limitations to accommodations so they are considered reasonable. First, the academic accommodation cannot pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others. Second, an accommodation is not reasonable if it substantially alters an essential element of the course or program. Lastly, an accommodation is not reasonable if it poses an undue burden on the institution. Accommodations provide an alternative way to accomplish the course requirements by eliminating or reducing disability-related barriers. They provide a level playing field, not an unfair advantage.</p> <p>Examples of reasonable accommodations include the following: accessible facilities, extended test time, oral administration of tests, alternative testing arrangements or locations, preferential seating in the classroom, a note taker, permission to record lectures, alternative formats for printed materials, image-enlarging technology, advanced copies of materials that will be used in the classroom, and housing in a private room (at the student&rsquo;s expense).</p> <p>Students should be aware that reasonable accommodations in higher education operate differently than they do in high school. Reasonable accommodations ensure equal access to education but cannot alter the essential nature of courses or programs of study. The quality and quantity of work required of students with disabilities is equal to that of other students.</p> <p>The student is responsible for the financial cost involved in obtaining documentation of a disability. While the University does not diagnose disabilities, Learning Enhancement Services can refer the student to local agencies and professionals who provide those services.</p> <p>Learning Enhancement Services notifies appropriate faculty members of the accommodations needed by students with disabilities. Students may request an appointment with the faculty member to work out the details of the accommodations. The Counseling Center may be notified if the student believes counseling sessions will help with adjustment to higher education.</p> <p>Students who feel that instructors are not observing the reasonable accommodations should contact Learning Enhancement Services for assistance.</p> <p>Students who feel they have not received appropriate accommodations or who wish to lodge a complaint of noncompliance with ADA regulations should consult the&nbsp;Student Grievance Policy.</p> Thu, 12 Sep 2019 15:33:11 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/services_and_academic_policies/disability-services Distinguished Alumni http://www.macuniversity.edu/alumni/distinguished-alumni <p>Mid-Atlantic Christian University wishes to recognize and honor alumni of extraordinary achievement, distinguished service, or exemplary character by presenting them the award &ldquo;Distinguished Alumnus&rdquo; or &ldquo;Distinguished Alumna.&rdquo;</p> <p>This award is given to recognize superior leadership or achievement, to acknowledge a selfless spirit of service, to express appreciation for exceptional generosity, or to publicly identify and recognize worthy role models.

Traditionally universities have a threefold purpose for existence: to teach, to serve, and to research. The MACU faculty serves in three similar ways.</p> <li>We view our primary sphere of service to be teaching.</li> <li>We also see our role of service to be to churches and to our community. Specifically to churches, we serve informally by answering emails and serving in the churches we attend in various capacities, but also in visiting congregations near and far, so we may help equip God&rsquo;s people for service in his kingdom. </li> <li>We also play a role in service to the church at large by research through scholarly and popular publication, through delivering papers and workshops at conventions, and through participation in other projects.</li> <br />We hope you will enjoy reading about the recent contributions of MACU faculty in these latter two venues: first recent publications and second, standing presentations ready to deliver at churches. <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2 class="text-center">Recent Publications and Professional Activities by MACU Faculty</h2> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h3 class="text-center">2019</h3> <h3>Articles and Reviews</h3> <ul class="list-group"> <li class="list-group-item">Larsen, Kevin W.

His role as Lawgiver and Redeemer cannot be understood apart from this starting point. If there were no Creation and subsequent Fall as described in Genesis, then Jesus is reduced to a man on the wrong planet with the wrong mission. Effective evangelism in today&rsquo;s world must include a defense of the scientific credibility of the Biblical account of Creation, the Fall, and the Flood. </li> <li class="list-group-item"> <strong> &ldquo;From Jerusalem to Rome &ndash; A Survey of the Book of Acts&rdquo;</strong><br /> It could be argued that Acts of the Apostles is the most important book in the New Testament due to its several unique characteristics. For example, without Acts we would know far less about Paul, the author of over half of the New Testament. Understanding the origin and growth of the church is essential for effective Christian service. A Christian servant is expected to be able to lead a person to faith in Christ and then maturity in that faith. Much of the foundation for this task is found in Acts. </li> <li class="list-group-item"> <strong> &ldquo;Genesis: Foundation for the Rest of the Bible&rdquo;</strong><br /> Genesis provides vital information about the origin of all things and thus the meaning of all things. Without this foundation the rest of the Bible is more difficult to understand. Moses was not an eyewitness of these events but he was the inspired writer whom God used to preserve a written record of the pivotal characters and events of this opening chapter in the history of God&rsquo;s plan of the world. </li> <li class="list-group-item"> <strong> &ldquo;A Journey with Jeremiah&rdquo;</strong><br /> Most agree that we are living in the &ldquo;post-Christian era&rdquo; or a time when Christianity is not the dominant force in Western civilization it once was. How do you respond to such a situation? Despair? Determination? Follow the journey of faith of Jeremiah, a dedicated prophet of God. He stood for God and remained faithful in times far more discouraging than our own. Allow a time of reflection on his life to light a fire under your resolve to be faithful. </li> <li class="list-group-item"> <strong> &ldquo;Leadership Portraits from Scripture&rdquo;</strong><br /> A walk through a bookstore reveals an array of resources offering advice on effective leadership in a wide range of careers from business to government.

Its pages are filled with the stories of real leaders facing real challenges and meeting with different degrees of success. All of their stories offer principles for effective leadership for those who search with the eye of faith. </li> </ul> </div> </div> Wed, 26 Feb 2020 21:22:48 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/faculty-scholarly-contributions Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act – FERPA http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2>Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act &ndash; FERPA</h2> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <p><span>The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of a student&rsquo;s education records.

The skills and knowledge needed for healthy functioning are widely known: strong communication skills, knowledge of typical human development, good decision-making skills, positive self-esteem, and healthy interpersonal relationships.</p> <p>The goal of family life education is to teach and foster this knowledge and these skills to enable individuals and families to function optimally.</p> <p>Family life education professionals consider societal issues including economics, education, work-family issues, parenting, sexuality, gender and more within the context of the family. They believe that societal problems such as substance abuse, domestic violence, unemployment, debt, and child abuse can be more effectively addressed from a perspective that considers the individual and family as part of larger systems.

This is a recommended definition.)</span></p> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jan 2016 15:46:30 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa/ferpa-definitions FERPA FAQs - Students & Parents http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa/ferpa-faqs <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2>FERPA FAQs - Students &amp; Parents</h2> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h3>For Students and Parents</h3> <p><strong>What is FERPA?</strong></p> <p><span>The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children's education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records. When a student turns 18 years old, or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student ("eligible student"). The FERPA statute is found at 20 U.S.C. &sect; 1232g and the FERPA regulations are found at 34 CFR Part 99.</span></p> <p><strong>Why should I care about FERPA?</strong></p> <p>If you're a student, it's important for you to understand your rights under FERPA. If you're a parent, you'll need to understand how the law changes once your student enters a post-secondary institution. If you're an employee of MACU with access to student education records, you're obligated to comply with FERPA and to protect those records according to the law.</p> <p><strong>When do the FERPA rights of a student begin?</strong></p> <p>According to the law, a person becomes a student for purposes of FERPA when they are "in attendance" at an institution. This includes attendance in person or remotely by videoconference, satellite, Internet, or other electronic and telecommunications technologies. At MACU, we define a student as someone currently or previously enrolled in any academic offering of the University. This does&nbsp;<span><em>not</em></span>&nbsp;include prospective students or applicants to any academic program of the University.<br /><br />FERPA becomes effective on the first day those newly admitted students who have scheduled at least one course. A student who accepted an admission offer but did not schedule at least one course, or a newly admitted student who canceled his/her registration either before or after the semester begins, is not covered by FERPA.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are "education records"?</strong></p> <p>Please review the FERPA definitions page for a complete definition.</p> <ol> </ol> <p><strong>As a parent, am I allowed to access my son or daughter's education records?</strong></p> <p>In primary and secondary educational institutions (i.e. K-12), all FERPA rights belong to the parent. However, when the student reaches the age of 18&nbsp;<span><em>or</em></span>&nbsp;begins to attend a post-secondary institution<span><em>regardless of age</em></span>, all FERPA rights transfer to the student. For MACU students, the FERPA rights belong to the students, not the parents.</p> <p><span><strong>As a parent, am I allowed to access my son or daughter's education records if they are listed as a dependent?</strong></span></p> <p>If the student is a dependent for income tax purposes, the institution may disclose any education records, including financial records to a student's parents. If the student is not a dependent, then the student must generally provide consent for the school to disclose the information to the parents.</p> <p><span><span><strong>If I am a parent of a college student, do I have the right to see my child's education records, especially if I pay the bill?</strong></span></span></p> <p><span><span>The rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student, once the student turns 18 years old or enters a postsecondary institution at any age. However, although the rights under FERPA have now transferred to the student, a school may disclose information from an "eligible student's" education records to the parents of the student, without the student's consent, if the student is a dependent for tax purposes. Neither the age of the student nor the parent's status as a custodial parent is relevant. If a student is claimed as a dependent by either parent for tax purposes, then either parent may have access under this provision. (34 CFR &sect; 99.31(a)(8).)</span></span></p> <p><span class="sectioncolortext"><strong>May a postsecondary institution disclose to a parent, without the student's consent, information regarding a student's violation of the use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance?</strong></span><br /><span class="contentText"> </span></p> <p>Yes, if the student is under the age of 21 at the time of the disclosure. FERPA was amended in 1998 to allow such disclosures. See &sect; 99.31(a)15 of the FERPA regulations. Also, if the student is a "dependent student" as defined in FERPA, the institution may disclosure such information, regardless of the age of the student.</p> <p><strong>Are there any conditions under which student education records may be disclosed without the student's consent?</strong><br /><br /><span>Yes, FERPA does contain some exceptions to the written consent rule. Those exceptions allow disclosure without consent:&nbsp;</span></p> <ul> <li>To University officials (including third parties under contract) with legitimate educational interests</li> <li>To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena</li> <li>To appropriate parties in a health or safety emergency in order to protect the student or others</li> <li>To parents in cases of drug or alcohol violation when the student is under the age of 21</li> <li>To the provider or creator of a record to verify the validity of that record (e.g. in cases of suspected fraud)</li> <li>To organizations conducting research studies on behalf of the University, provided there is awritten agreement&nbsp;between the University and the research organization</li> <li>To officials at an institution in which the student seeks or intends to enroll or is currently enrolled</li> </ul> <p><strong>Is the University required to release a student's directory information?</strong></p> <p><br />No. The only required disclosure of education records is to the student. All other disclosures, including those with student consent and disclosures of directory information, are at the discretion of the institution.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Can a student prevent the release of their directory information?</strong><br /><br />FERPA requires each institution to allow students to block disclosure of their directory information. At MACU, we refer to this action as "confidentiality." The following are consequences of a student placing confidentiality on their record:</p> <ul> <li>Student name/address is excluded from online or printed directories.</li> <li>Student name will not appear in the commencement program.</li> <li>Verification of enrollment, graduation, or degrees awarded will not be provided to third parties, including potential employers and insurance companies.</li> <li>No information will be released to any person on the telephone or via e-mail.</li> </ul> <p>Requests for confidentiality are permanent until removed in writing by the student.</p> <ol> </ol></div> </div> Tue, 19 Jan 2016 15:50:42 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa/ferpa-faqs FERPA FAQs for Faculty & Staff http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa/ferpa-faqs-faculty-staff <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2>FERPA FAQs for Faculty &amp; Staff</h2> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <p><span> </span></p> <h3><span>For University Staff and Faculty</span></h3> <p><strong>When do the FERPA rights of a student begin?</strong></p> <p>According to the law, a person becomes a student for purposes of FERPA when they are "in attendance" at an institution. This includes attendance in person or remotely by videoconference, satellite, Internet, or other electronic and telecommunications technologies. At MACU, we define a student as someone currently or previously enrolled in any academic offering of the University. This does&nbsp;<span><em>not</em></span>&nbsp;include prospective students or applicants to any academic program of the University.<br /><br />FERPA becomes effective on the first day those newly admitted students who have scheduled at least one course. A student who accepted an admission offer but did not schedule at least one course, or a newly admitted student who canceled his/her registration either before or after the semester begins, is not covered by FERPA.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are the penalties for violting FERPA?</strong></p> <p><span>The Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) of the Department of Education reviews and investigates complaints of alleged violations of FERPA. If the (FPCO) Office finds that there has been a failure to comply with FERPA, it will notify the institution about the corrections that need to be made to bring the institution into compliance. The FPCO will then establish a reasonable period of time for the institution to voluntarily accomplish the specified changes. If the Secretary of Education finds that, after this reasonable period of time, an institution has failed to comply with FERPA and determines that compliance cannot be secured by any means, he or she can, among other options, direct that no federal funds (financial aid, education grants, etc.) be made available to that institution.</span></p> <p><span>&nbsp;</span><strong>What is an education record?</strong></p> <p>Any record that is maintained by the institution and is personally identifiable to the student. Exceptions to this are medical records, law enforcement records, employment records, alumni records, and sole possession records such as notes in sole possession of the maker, used only as a personal memory aid and not revealed or accessible to any other person.</p> <p><strong>Who is a &ldquo;university official?&rdquo;</strong></p> <p>A University official is any person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support position; a person elected to the Board of Trustees; a student or a University graduate serving on an official University committee or assisting another University official in performing his or her tasks; or a person employed by or under contract to, or serving as the agent of, the University to perform a specific task.</p> <p><strong>What data has the Mid-Atlantic Christian University defined as directory information?</strong></p> <p>Name, permanent and local address and telephone number, school or college, class level, major field, dates of attendance, degree received and date awarded, honors and awards received, participation in recognized activities, previous school(s) attended, and height and weight of members of intercollegiate athletic teams.</p> <p><strong>Can you share a student's information with their parent?</strong></p> <p>No. Once a student reaches the age of 18 or attends an institution of postsecondary education, the parents have no rights under FERPA. Only the student can give permission for their parents to have access to their records.</p> <p><strong>What should you do if your unit receives a subpoena for an academic record?</strong></p> <p>Forward it to the Office of the Registrar as soon as possible.</p> <p><strong>Can an instructor post grades or exam results in a public place using a portion of the students' social security number or MACUID?</strong></p> <p>No. In order for an instructor to post grades or scores, they must either have the written permission of the students or use an identifier that is known only to the instructor and each individual student.</p> <p><strong>A scholarship committee chair from a fraternity or sorority has asked to receive the grade point averages of their members? Can this information be released to them?</strong></p> <p>No. The student scholarship chair for a fraternity or sorority is not a "university official" and therefore may not have access to grade point averages of its members. All members of the fraternity must sign written release authorizing the scholarship chair access to their grade point averages.</p> <p><strong>If a private business requests directory information for students in your unit, must you release this information?</strong></p> <p>No. An institution is under no obligation to release directory information to anyone. FERPA only says that an institution MAY release directory information. When in doubt, refer the individual to the Registrar's Office.</p> <p><strong>Do faculty members have a right to inspect education records of any student without giving a reason?</strong></p> <p>No. Faculty members are considered "school officials", but the faculty member must demonstrate "a legitimate educational interest" in their request to access student records, e.g. advising students, retention study, etc.</p> <p><strong>You receive a telephone call from a parent claiming there is a family emergency and they need to contact their child immediately. Can you tell the parents the day, time and location of their child's class?</strong></p> <p>Generally, the answer is &ldquo;no.&rdquo; At MACU , a student's class schedule is not listed as directory information; therefore this information may not be released. The answer may be &ldquo;yes&rdquo; depending on the circumstances of the emergency. FERPA states that if the release of non-directory information is &ldquo;necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals,&rdquo; then this information may be released.</p> <p><strong>Are student-related comments and notes covered by FERPA?</strong></p> <p>There are many offices at the University that record comments and notes regarding students. These may be entered in kept in the student file in a department or a university-wide system. It is important for anyone recording notes regarding an interaction with a student to understand that unless these notes fall into the category of "sole possession"records,then they are part of the student's education record and subject to FERPA. Since FERPA gives the student the right to review any or all of his/her education record, these notes could be included in that review. Therefore, it is important that notes or comments be factual and objective and that University employees who are recording notes or comments avoid making value judgments or using inappropriate language.</p> <p><strong>I've found an interesting new online tool that I'd like to use as part of my class. Is it OK to upload my class list to the vendor's website so that students can log in to the site?</strong></p> <p>If a university is providing non-directory information to these vendors (and since class enrollment is&nbsp;<em><span><strong>not</strong></span></em>&nbsp;directory information, uploading a class list constitutes a release of non-directory infromation), then FERPA applies. FERPA either requires the consent of every student prior to releasing his/her non-directory information to the vendor, or that a contract is in place with the vendor containing four specific clauses.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>What are some specific examples of FERPA violations?</strong></p> <ul> <li>Publicly posting grades by student name or any part of the student ID number without the student&rsquo;s written permission</li> <li>Leaving graded tests or papers in a stack for students to pick up by sorting through the papers of all students</li> <li>Circulating a printed class roster with names and any part of the student ID, SSN, or grades as an attendance sheet</li> <li>Discussing the student&rsquo;s progress or records with anyone other than the student (including parents) without the student&rsquo;s written consent, with the exception of University officials who have a legitimate educational interest in order to fulfill their professional responsibilities</li> <li>Sending a letter of recommendation that includes information from a student&rsquo;s record, such as grades, GPA, or course attendance, without explicit written permission of the student to release that information</li> <li>Sending a letter of recommendation for a student employee, graduate assistant, or teaching assistant that provides details about that student&rsquo;s employment (i.e., wages, dates of employment) without written permission of the student</li> <li>Providing lists of students enrolled in class (class roster) to a third party for any commercial purpose</li> <li>Providing student schedules or assisting anyone other than University employees in finding a student on campus</li> <li>Permitting unauthorized use of any information in the files maintained, stored, or processed by the office in which you are employed. This includes copies of permission, registration, or add/drop forms</li> <li>Releasing confidential student information to another student or outside entities</li> <li>Distributing a student&rsquo;s transcripts. Transcript requests must be submitted to the Registrar&rsquo;s Office</li> <li>Leaving reports or computer screens with student information in view of others or leaving your computer unattended</li> <li>Allowing another person to access student records because you permit him or her to use your access code</li> <li>Inappropriately disposing of paperwork containing confidential student information (i.e., student ID number, GPA, or grades) by placing it in the trash or recycle bin, rather than shredding the information</li> <li>Disclosing directory information if the student has submitted a written request for non-disclosure of directory information</li> </ul> <p><strong><br /></strong></p> <div><span><br /></span></div> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jan 2016 15:53:03 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/information-security/ferpa/ferpa-faqs-faculty-staff Field Mentors http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/internship-program/field-mentors <p>Field Mentors serve a valuable role in the educational process for Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) students.&nbsp; Time invested in providing counsel, oversight, and on the job training is rewarding for both the student as well as the mentor as he or she is able to assist MACU in preparing extraordinary leaders.</p> <p>As part of the mission of Mid-Atlantic, the Internship program seeks to assist students in understanding the environment and culture for the world in which they live and work. Cultural differences can be in many areas: &nbsp;ethnic, racial, gender, age, socio-economic, etc. &nbsp;The following outcomes for students have been established in this area and we ask Field Mentors to be especially cognizant of how students are achieving these goals:</p> <p><span> </span>1. &nbsp;Students will be able to usse their knowledge of cultural differences to navigate intercultural experiences successfully.</p> <p><span> </span>2. &nbsp;Students will be able to demonstrate interest in other cultures through initiating inquiry and interaction.</p> <p><span> </span>3. &nbsp;Students will be able to suspend premature judgments when interacting cross-culturally.</p> <p>Being a Field Mentor takes time: investing, leading, providing feedback, correcting, encouraging, challenging, and holding the intern accountable.&nbsp; As with any good investment, the return is significant.&nbsp; An effective internship provides for the intern valuable &lsquo;on the job&rsquo; experience and a chance to discern his or her gifts for effective ministry.&nbsp; It provides for the church an opportunity to help in the development of kingdom workers.&nbsp; Both of these benefits work together to advance the kingdom of God on earth.</p> <p>Field Mentors and host churches or organizations should understand that hosting an intern is not primarily a means of having additional staff to carry on the day to day responsibilities of the work.&nbsp; Instead, it is first and foremost a learning experience in which the mentor should provide oversight, direction, and learning experiences for the intern.</p> <p>A field mentor invests time and effort in developing the intern.&nbsp; Appreciation is expressed to those who are willing to shoulder this responsibility.&nbsp; Below are some of the materials propsective mentors will find helpful in discovering the role of mentoring.&nbsp; Also are samples of forms mentors are expected to complete to aid the Internship Program in evaluating the intern as well as the program.</p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/650/Field_Mentor_Requirements_and_Responsibilities_Ministry_Track.pdf">Field Mentor Requirements and Responsibilities - Ministry (Cross-Cultural Preaching)</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/649/Field_Mentor_Requirements_and_Responsibilities_Leadership_Track.pdf">Field Mentor Requirements and Responsibilities _ Leadership</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/658/Field_Mentor_Application.pdf">Application for Field Mentors</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/653/Internship_Learning_Covenant_Ministry.pdf">Learning Covenant - Ministry</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/655/Internship_Learning_Covenant_Cross_Cultural.pdf">Learning Covenant - Cross-Cultural</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/654/Internship_Learning_Covenant_YFM.pdf">Learning Covenant - Youth and Family</a></p> <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/652/Internship_Learning_Covenant_Ldshp.pdf">Learning Covenant _ Leadership</a></p> Tue, 12 Aug 2014 15:13:28 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/internship-program/field-mentors Finance Policies http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/policies/finance-policies <p><strong><a href="#fin">Finance Office</a></strong><br /><a href="#f1">F-01 Scholarship Forfeiture </a><br /><a href="#f2"> F-02 Purchasing</a><br /><a href="#f3"> F-03 Cashiering</a><br /><a href="#f4"> F-04 Health Insurance Self Insurance Program</a><br /><a href="#f5"> F-05 Payment of Student Accounts</a><br /><a href="#f6"> F-06 Annual Employee Packages</a><br /><a href="#f7"> F-07 Use of University Vehicles</a><br /><a href="#f8"> F-08 Rental of Facilities</a><br /><a href="#f9"> F-09 On Campus Apt Rental</a><br /><a href="#f10"> F-10 Document Rentention and Destruction</a><br /><a href="#f11"> F-11 Whistleblower</a><br /><a href="#f13">F-13 Conflict of Interest</a><br /><a href="#f14"> F-14 Lobbying Certification</a><br /><a href="#f15"> F-15 Electronic Signatures</a><br /><a href="#f16"> F-16 Check Signing</a><br /><a href="#f17"> F-17 Capitalization</a><br /><a href="#f18"> F-18 Classification of Students as Revenue Share with Comcourse</a><br /><br /><span><strong><a href="#fa"> Financial Aid</a></strong></span><br /><a href="#fa1"> F-FA-01 Scholarships for Spouses of Students</a><br /><a href="#fa2"> F-FA-02 Scholarships for Dependent Children of Faculty &amp;

Purpose</strong></p> <p>The primary investment objective of the Mid-Atlantic Foundation (MACU Foundation) is to achieve reasonable and reliable long-term growth of capital whose purchasing power is buffered from the effects of inflation, while still preserving the historical principal balance. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>II. Policy</strong></p> <p>These endowment funds stipulate that the principal is to be maintained in perpetuity, for the purpose of producing present and future income to support the purpose(s) stipulated in the gift and/or the long-term objectives of the MACU Foundation. &nbsp;Moderate variability of returns over the near term may be experienced in order to achieve this objective.</p> <p>The Foundation will invest the endowed principal in assets which balance safety of principal, growth of principal, and generation of income. The investment parameters include investing the funds for long-term growth and income, while preserving principal with minimal risk.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>III. Procedure</strong></p> <ol> <li>To maintain the ability to deal with short term obligations and unplanned cash requirements that might arise, the Finance Audit and Investment (FAI) Committee requires that enough cash or cash equivalents, including money market funds, CDs, short term U.S. Treasury bills, and/or other appropriate short term investments be available to manage projected cash flow.&nbsp;</li> <li>The FAI Committee of the MACU Foundation Board of Directors will utilize selected professional investment consultant(s) and delegate investment management authority to chosen professional money manager(s) who will assist the MACU Foundation in meeting its investment objectives and fiduciary responsibilities. &nbsp;No single individual will be permitted to make investments on behalf of the Foundation.&nbsp;</li> <li>Performance results will be calculated in accordance with generally accepted standards and will be communicated at least quarterly (monthly preferred) to the Finance, Audit &amp; Investment Committee (FAI Committee) of the MACU Foundation Board of Directors and at least semi-annually to the full board. The investment performance of total portfolios, as well as asset class components, will be measured against commonly accepted performance benchmarks. Consideration shall be given to the extent to which the investment results are consistent with the overall objectives as set forth in this policy. The FAI Committee intends to evaluate the portfolio(s) over a two to five year period, but reserves the right to terminate an Investment Consultant and/or Money Manager for any reason including the following:&nbsp;<ol> <li>Investment performance, which is significantly less than anticipated, given the discipline employed, and risk parameters established or unacceptable justification of poor results.&nbsp;</li> <li>Failure to adhere to any aspect of this investment objective and policy, including reporting requirements and communication.&nbsp;</li> <li>Significant qualitative changes to the investment management organization. Money Managers shall be reviewed regularly regarding performance and other factors that may impact their ability to achieve the desired investment results.</li> </ol></li> <li>The Foundation will distribute funds in accordance with its Distribution Policy, currently policy 5.</li> </ol> <p><strong>IV.&nbsp;</strong><strong>Published:</strong>&nbsp;Policy Manual</p> <p><strong>V.&nbsp;</strong><strong>Reason for Revision:</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>VI.

The minimum required test results are:</p> <p>a) 500 on the paper-based test &ndash; OR</p> <p>b) 222 on the computer&ndash;based test &ndash; OR</p> <p>c) 80 on the internet test with section scores of at least:</p> <p>1. 22 in Reading</p> <p>2. 21 in Listening</p> <p>3. 19 in Writing</p> <p>4. 18 in Speaking</p> <h2>SAT or ACT results</h2> <p>If available, applicants are to submit scores for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the Academic Competency Test (ACT). The minimum guidelines for acceptance are an SAT Composite score of 940; OR an ACT composite score of 18. MACU is a "test optional" university, however students who do not have a SAT or ACT score will receive less MACU funded scholarship options.</p> <h2>Scholarships</h2> <p>International students should communicate with an admissions counselor for scholarship options.</p> <h2>I-20 VISA</h2> <p>The University will work with each applicant to obtain the required I-20 VISA. This step of the application process will require copies of the applicant&rsquo;s passport as well as a verification of available funds for use by the application to meet all of those items not covered by scholarships. This part of the process will begin ONLY after the applicant has been accepted for admission and all aspects of finance have been satisfied.</p> <h2>Dual Enrollment</h2> <p>Current international High school students may apply for admission as a dual-enrolled non-degree seeking student. Dual-enrolled students will not be permitted to enroll for more than six credits per semester. No more than 12 credit hours may be earned as a non-degree seeking student. Individuals who have earned 12 credit hours must meet application/admission requirements for degree seeking status to be eligible to enroll in additional hours.</p> <p>Admission decisions will be based on the applicants' application, references and demonstrated ability to learn and work in English. Unlike other programs, dual enrolled high school students are not required to have a TOEFL score to enroll at MACU. This difference places a great amount of weight on the applicant's essay and other application process sections.</p> <h2>FAQs</h2> <p>How long does the application process generally take? Usually 4 months from application to the I-20 VISA</p> <p>Are there extra fees for International applicants? No, the cost of a MACU education is the same for all applicants. However, there may be additional costs like TOEFL testing, the required Secondary or High School assessment, and college transfer assessments.</p> <p>Can I remain in the dorms during school breaks and holidays? The dorms are closed during school breaks and holidays. The Student Life Office will work with international students to ensure they have safe and complete plans for breaks and holidays.</p> <p>Is there an advantage to being an online student? Yes, online students receive the same quality education as on campus students. International online students are able to save on travel, room, board and holiday related expenses.</p> </div> </div> Wed, 29 Jan 2020 20:32:20 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/admissions/future-students Gerald R.

Presley Hall (girl&rsquo;s dorms) and Harold C. Turner (guy&rsquo;s dorm). These halls support traditional dormitory-style living on a college campus. Each dorm houses a Residence Hall Director, who oversees room assignments and other dorm matters. Resident Assistants, students employed by the university who are located on each hall to assist students with day-to-day college life, provide guidance and direction with personal matters, and to organize dorm activities that build fellowship and spiritual maturity.</p> <p>Mid-Atlantic&rsquo;s dorms provide comfortable living for its residents. Each room has the following stationary furnishings: 2 beds, 2 desks, 2 bookshelves, 2 sets of closets (one for hanging clothes, one with a chest of drawers), sink and mirror, room controls for AC/heat, wireless internet and LAN hookup.</p> <p>Each hall also has a lobby with TV and cable access. The first floor main lobby is equipped with a wide-screen TV and cable, sitting and studying areas, Foosball and pool tables, and table tennis. In addition to these amenities, there is also a workout center provided in the Herald C. Turner building.</p> <p>MACU borders the Pasquotank River. Often you can enjoy boat rides as well as the use of our kayaks to explore the river.</p> <p>The Albert Blanton III Campus Life Center includes the chapel, gymnasium, and library. The chapel allows us all to come together for worship in student-led chapel services and fellowship. Our gymnasium is a perfect place for intramural and collegiate volleyball and basketball games. The library has several computers available for student use as well as being a quiet place to study.</p> Mon, 15 Jul 2019 10:22:59 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/student-life/living-on-campus Location http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/location <strong>Location</strong> <p>Mid-Atlantic Christian University is located in historic Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The twenty-acre&nbsp;campus is on the banks of the Pasquotank River, five blocks from the US 17/158 bypass and three blocks&nbsp;from the downtown business district and waterfront (see map in Directory section of this catalog). The city&nbsp;of 17,000 provides opportunities for employment, recreation, and shopping. The University is less than&nbsp;two miles from Albemarle Hospital, College of the Albemarle, Elizabeth City State University, and The&nbsp;Museum of the Albemarle. In addition, Mid-Atlantic Christian University is within an hour drive of Virginia&nbsp;Beach, Virginia, and the beaches of North Carolina&lsquo;s Outer Banks. The University is located in perhaps the thickest concentration of Churches of Christ on the Atlantic coast,&nbsp;from the metropolitan area of Norfolk, Virginia, 50 miles northward, to the rural counties of North Carolina,&nbsp;100 miles southward. This strategic location affords many opportunities for involvement in church&nbsp;activities, student ministries, youth ministries, supply preaching and other Christian service.</p> <p><br /><br /></p> Wed, 23 Apr 2014 12:59:38 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/location Lodging http://www.macuniversity.edu/admissions/campus-visit/lodging <p>If you do not wish to stay on campus there are many choices for local lodging with easy access to campus.</p> <h2>Motels/Hotels</h2> <ul> <p><strong>Fairfield Inn &amp; Suites</strong></p> </ul> <ul> <p>252-333-1003</p> <p><a href="http://www.marriott.com/orfec" title="rfec ">www.marriott.com/orfec</a></p> </ul> <ul> <p>888-236-2427</p> </ul> <ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Comfort Inn</strong></p> </ul> <ul> <p><a class="fl r-i9DWyamM_b30" title="Call via Hangouts">(252) 338-8900</a></p> </ul> <ul> <p><a href="https://www.choicehotels.com/comfort-inn">www.choicehotels.com/comfort-inn</a></p> </ul> <ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> </ul> <ul> <p><strong>Hampton Inn</strong></p> </ul> <ul> <p>252-333-1800</p> </ul> <ul> <p><a href="http://www.hamptoninn.com/">www.hamptoninn.com</a></p> </ul> <ul> <p>800-Hampton (426-7866)</p> </ul> <ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Quality Inn</strong></p> </ul> <ul> <p>252-338-3951</p> </ul> <ul> <p><a href="http://www.qualityinn.com">www.qualityinn.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Best Western Plus</strong></p> <p><a class="fl r-iTb_f3wqotn0" title="Call via Hangouts">(252) 331-7751</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.bestwestern.com/index.asp?suppressSSLPopup=false&amp;language=en_US&amp;gp=false&amp;tp=false&amp;cp=false">www.bestwestern.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </ul> <h2>Bed &amp; Breakfast Inns</h2> <p><strong>Culpepper Inn</strong></p> <p>252-335-9235</p> <p><a href="http://www.culpepperinn.com">www.culpepperinn.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Elizabeth City Bed &amp; Breakfast</strong></p> <p>877-435-8922</p> <p><a href="http://www.elizabethcitybb.com/">www.elizabethcitybb.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>The Grice-Fearing House</strong></p> <p>252-333-1792</p> <p><a href="http://www.gricefearinghouse.com">www.gricefearinghouse.com</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>The Pond House</strong></p> <p>888-335-9834</p> <p><a href="http://www.thepondhouseinn.com/">www.thepondhouseinn.com</a></p> Tue, 22 Aug 2017 15:48:38 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/admissions/campus-visit/lodging MAC Addresses http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/support-and-guides/mac-addresses <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2>MAC Addresses</h2> </div> </div> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-12"> <h2>How to Find the MAC Address of a Common Streaming or Gaming Device</h2> <h3><span><strong>Google Chromecast</strong></span></h3> <p>To find the MAC address of your Chromecast:</p> <ol> <li>Open the Chromecast app on your computer.

Official email communications are intended to meet the academic and administrative needs of the university. The university has the right to expect that such communications will be received and read in a timely fashion. To enable this process, the college ensures that all students can be accessed through a standardized, university-issued email account.</p> <p><strong>FERPA and Email</strong></p> <p>University email is an official form of communication for Mid-Atlantic Christian University. Because of the University email's position as an official correspondence, directory and non-directory information should not be shared via any non-University email address. Email communication between staff/faculty and students should only take place via official University assigned email addresses. Non-directory information should be shared via University or non-University email addresses. The transmission of final grades via email is a violation of FERPA. If an email is sent to a third party and the email is also sent to student, the student's email address should be placed in the blind carbon copy (Bcc) field.&nbsp; Student email addresses should only be shared with the permission of the student.</p> <p>Contact the Registrar's Office for more information about FERPA regulations.</p> <p><strong>Assignment of Staff and Faculty Email Addresses</strong></p> <p>Faculty email addresses are assigned at the request of the Office of Academic Affairs.</p> <p>Staff email addresses are assigned at the request from the associated department. Staff and faculty will have an assigned password which will be distributed via written correspondence.&nbsp;</p> <p>Department and group email addresses can be requested but they are assigned at the discretion of OIT.</p> <p><strong>Assignment of Student Email Addresses</strong></p> <p>Each student, upon enrolling, is issued an email account with an address on the macuniversity.edu domain. The email account created by the University is the official email address to which the university will send electronic communications. Students will be notified with their account information via written communication.</p> <p><strong>Accessing Email via Google Apps for Education @ MACU</strong></p> <p>Information about Google Apps for Education, MACUapps, Gmail, and all other information related to Google is freely available on the official MACUapps webpage:&nbsp; google.macuniversity.edu</p> <p>Login credentials adhere to the following format:</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Username: &nbsp; firstname.lastname</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Password: &nbsp;(listed in your welcome packet/provided by OIT)</p> <p>Users can access the main Google Apps directly by navigating to: gmail.macuniversity.edu, calendar.macuniversity.edu, drive.macuniversity.edu, sites.macuniversity.edu &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Mobile Access/Alternative Access</strong></p> <p>Google Apps for Education/Gmail support IMAP/POP3 forwarding to phones and third-party email clients.&nbsp; Individual guides for all major phone operating systems can be found at : http://google.macuniversity.edu/getting-started .</p> <p><strong>Redirecting Email</strong></p> <p>Students may elect to redirect messages sent to their Mid-Atlantic Christian University email address. &nbsp;Students who redirect email from their official address to another address (Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc.) do so at their own risk. &nbsp;Having email lost as a result of redirection does not absolve students from their responsibilities associated with communications sent to their official email address. <strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Expectations Regarding Student Use of Email</strong></p> <p>Students are expected to check their Mid-Atlantic Christian University official email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to remain informed of school-related communications. &nbsp;</p> <p>Students are responsible for the consequences of not reading University-related communications sent to their official University email account. Students have the responsibility to recognize that certain communications may be time-critical.</p> <p><strong>Educational Uses of Email</strong></p> <p>Instructors may set policies defining how students use email in their class, including requiring students to check their email on a regular basis. University staff, faculty and students cannot use personal email accounts for University business.</p> <p><strong>Distribution List Access and Usage</strong></p> <p>Distribution lists are available for staff and faculty; students are prohibited from accessing University distribution list directly. Distribution lists are for University-related use only.</p> <p><strong>Mass Mailing</strong></p> <p>Unauthorized mass mailings are prohibited and may result in the immediate loss of network access.</p> <p><strong>Acceptable Usage of University Email</strong></p> <p>University email may not be used in the following ways:</p> <ul> <li>Unlawful Activities</li> <li>Commercial purposes</li> <li>Personal financial gain</li> <li>False identity in email communications</li> <li>Misrepresentation of Mid-Atlantic Christian University</li> </ul> <p><strong>Deletion of Student Email Accounts</strong></p> <p>Student accounts are deactivated on the last day of drop-add of the first semester that a student is not registered. When an account is deactivated, no one will be able to log in with that account information or have access to files stored under it. Accounts are deleted one year after account deactivation.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Retention of Email for Alumni</strong></p> <p>Beginning in the Spring of 2012, students that graduate from Mid-Atlantic Christian University will have the option of keeping their @macuniversity.edu email address. Accounts for alumni that remain inactive for a period of one year will be removed--all emails, documents, calendars, and contacts associated with the account will be deleted.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Deletion and Retention of Staff and Faculty Email Accounts</strong></p> <p>Staff and faculty email accounts are disabled when an employee leaves the University. Staff and faculty email is archived for a period of at least three years after the last official University-related interaction.<strong></strong></p> </div> </div> Tue, 19 Jan 2016 16:38:50 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/technology/services/macu-email MACU IT for Students http://www.macuniversity.edu/current-students/macu-it-for-students Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:23:26 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/current-students/macu-it-for-students MACU Messenger http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/macu-messenger <p><a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1385/Messenger_Vol_72_No_2_Spring_2020_web_version.pdf">Spring 2020</a></p> Mon, 09 Mar 2020 13:59:54 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/macu-messenger MACU Online http://www.macuniversity.edu/current-students/macu-online Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:24:22 -0500 http://www.macuniversity.edu/current-students/macu-online MACU Podcasts http://www.macuniversity.edu/podcasts &nbsp; <br /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>At Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU), students have the opportunity not only to train their minds but also to nurture their spiritual lives, in order to become maturing servants of God.&nbsp; The MACU family gathers in Davenport Chapel on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for a time of worship and teaching.&nbsp; Students assist in planning our weekly chapel programs, serving as speakers, song leaders, instrumentalists, and singers.&nbsp; At other times, a faculty member or a missionary, alumnus, or other guest speaks in chapel.

The ROTC&nbsp;Offices are located in the ROTC Building (#115).</p> <p>The Military Science curriculum consists of two two-year courses. First, the Basic Course consists of eight&nbsp;semester hours taken during freshman and sophomore years. It covers such subjects as the Army&nbsp;organization, military customs and traditions, leadership development, basic military skills, and physical&nbsp;training. In addition, a variety of outside social and professional enrichment activities are available. All&nbsp;necessary ROTC textbooks, uniforms, and other essential materials for the Basic Course are furnished at&nbsp;no cost. After completion of the Basic Course, students who have demonstrated the potential to become&nbsp;Army officers and who have met the physical and scholastic standards are eligible to enroll in the&nbsp;Advanced Course.</p> <p>Students who are unable to complete the on-campus Basic Course may attend the Army&lsquo;s Leader&nbsp;Training Course, an intensive 28-day summer camp (in lieu thereof) between their sophomore and junior&nbsp;years. The Professor of Military Science may also waive all or part of the Basic Course requirement&nbsp;based on prior military experience or Junior ROTC experience.</p> <p>Once students have satisfactorily completed the Basic Course, they may apply for enrollment in the&nbsp;Advanced Course. If selected for enrollment in the Advanced Course, the student signs a contract with&nbsp;the United States Government in which s/he agrees to complete the course of instruction, attend the&nbsp;advanced summer camp, and accept a commission in the reserve or active components of the U.S. Army&nbsp;for a period as specified by the Secretary of the Army. The Advanced Course includes instruction in&nbsp;organization and management, tactics, ethics and professionalism, and further leadership development.&nbsp;All necessary textbooks and uniforms in the Advanced Course are also furnished to students. The&nbsp;Advanced Course requires four complete semester courses plus attendance at the Leadership&nbsp;Development and Assessment Course (LDAC), a 32-day advanced training camp at &nbsp;Fort Lewis,&nbsp;Washington, during the summer following the junior year. LDAC gives cadets the chance to practice what&nbsp;they&lsquo;ve learned in the classroom, and introduces them to Army life ―in the field.‖ Students must also&nbsp;satisfactorily complete an approved military history course. Students must be U.S. Citizens to contract&nbsp;into the Advanced Course.</p> <p>Currently the Secretary of the Army has specified that for scholarship students a contract is for a period of&nbsp;eight years, which consist of four years on active duty, either in the Regular Army, Army National Guard&nbsp;or U.S. &nbsp;Army Reserve. The cadet is also required to perform an additional four years in the Inactive&nbsp;Ready Reserve, which consist of maintaining information with no drill requirement. Non-scholarship&nbsp;students may serve three years on active duty and five years in the Inactive Ready Reserve.</p> <p>Army ROTC offers 2-, 3-, and 4-year scholarships that pay full tuition and fees. Students can apply at any&nbsp;time from their senior year in high school to the second semester of their sophomore year in college. All&nbsp;scholarship students also earn $300-$500 monthly stipend while in school, and an annual allowance of&nbsp;$900 for books and miscellaneous fees. These scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. In&nbsp;addition, qualified non-scholarship cadets are eligible for a tuition reduction if participating in ROTC.</p> Mon, 17 Jun 2019 09:03:16 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-marketplace-ministry/military-science Ministry http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-bible-and-christian-ministry/ministry The Ministry Program is a four-year Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science program that includes a Biblical Studies major and a Ministry major.&nbsp;The Ministry program is a unique opportunity for a student to build their own degree program. Mid-Atlantic recognizes that one size does not fit all. Therefore, we are excited to offer a program that allows students to pick and choose from a variety of courses related to formal Christian vocational service, either in the United States or abroad. Students will take a core of courses, including a significant internship experience, and then fill out the program with electives ranging from preaching, youth ministry, worship, and cross-cultural ministry. &nbsp; Some students may choose to concentrate their elective course choices to the area of preaching.&nbsp; Students who complete 12 credit hours in preaching courses will graduate with a <a href="http://www.macuniversity.edu/academics/department-of-bible-and-christian-ministry/ministry/preaching">Ministry Major with preaching concentration</a> degree. &nbsp; Some students may choose to concentration their elective course choice to the area of cross-cultural ministry.

Only the Bible, God&lsquo;s word, enables us to integrate all fields of knowledge into a&nbsp;meaningful unity; it alone answers the deep questions of the human mind and spirit. Hence, all courses at&nbsp;Mid-Atlantic Christian University are taught from the perspective of the Christian worldview. Mid-Atlantic&nbsp;Christian University provides a Christian education based on a three-fold program of undergraduate&nbsp;instruction: Biblical and theological studies, general studies and professional studies. Mid-Atlantic Christian University believes that an educational program should cultivate development in all&nbsp;areas of a student&lsquo;s life. The University seeks to accomplish this through its academic curriculum, its&nbsp;service-learning program and its extracurricular activities. Academic work is designed to provide&nbsp;intellectual growth and maturity. The service-learning program is designed to integrate instruction with&nbsp;practical experience in Christian service. Extracurricular activities are designed to promote spiritual,&nbsp;physical and social growth.</p> <h2>Importance of Biblical Higher Education</h2> <p><span> </span></p> <p><span>In Matthew 7 Jesus tells a parable about two builders. One builder built a house on sand and another on rock. Jesus says that the person who builds a life on His words is like the man who built on rock. At MACU every student receives a substantial biblical and theological education as part of his/her degree program. Students preparing for vocational ministry complete forty-eight credit hours of Bible and theology courses. This requirement far exceeds the majority of MACU&rsquo;s peers.

At MACU, you will find a community of faith in an atmosphere of scholarship. Our mission is to transform ordinary people into extraordinary Christian leaders. We seek to develop men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills to impact the world. If you are searching for a university where you will be stretched academically, socially, and spiritually, MACU is for you!</p> <p>At Mid-Atlantic, we believe that every Christian is a minister of Christ. Some who study here will prepare for church related ministries while others will be educated to serve in the marketplace. To effectively transform the world, we <em>must</em> inculcate a Christian worldview in every discipline.&nbsp; J. Gresham Machen wrote, &ldquo;For Christians to influence the world with the truth of God's Word requires the recovery of the great Reformation doctrine of vocation. Christians are called to God's service not only in church professions but also in every secular calling. The task of restoring truth to the culture depends largely on our laypeople.&rdquo; Every MACU graduate, regardless of vocation, will be well prepared to influence the culture for Christ.</p> <p>There are a many reasons for a student to attend MACU. At MACU you will study with professors who are leaders in their fields of study. You will establish deep and lasting friendships, enjoy the beautiful waterfront campus, enthusiastically support Mustangs athletic events, worship together in chapel services, experience community in discipleship groups, and be inspired to reach your greatest potential. You will learn to think critically. You will be exposed to new ideas and to cultural diversity. You will have great student life events, dorm experiences, summer mission trips, and multiple opportunities to converse with staff and faculty members. At MACU you will have the opportunity to become a leader as you discover that leading requires serving.</p> <p>If you want to rise above the ordinary and are up to the task of reaching your maximum potential &ndash; Mid-Atlantic Christian University is for you!</p> <p>I look forward to hearing <em>your</em> story and how God is leading you to serve Him, in the church or in the marketplace.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>John W.

The shield reminds us of the shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16). The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, has been the university&rsquo;s symbol from its founding. The open book, representing both God&rsquo;s Word and academic excellence, reminds us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs 1:7) and that we, His children, should pursue excellence (1 Corinthians 10:31). The cross, shown in the center of the founding year &ndash; 1948 &ndash; indicates that honoring Christ and His Church is at the center of all the university does. - <em>December 3, 2014</em>&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/2186/pres-contact-centered_large.jpg" alt="pres-contact-centered_large.jpg (175x30)px" title="pres-contact-centered_large.jpg (175x30)px" width="175" height="30" /> <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/2201/icon-macu-mail-orange_large.png" alt="icon-macu-mail-orange_large.png (16x16)px" title="icon-macu-mail-orange_large.png (16x16)px" width="16" height="16" /> &nbsp; <a href="mailto:president@macuniversity.edu">President@macuniversity.edu</a><br /> <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/2221/icon-phone-silver.png" alt="icon-phone-silver.png (16x16)px" title="icon-phone-silver.png (16x16)px" width="16" height="16" /> &nbsp; 252.334.2004<br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; <br /> <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/images/2191/pres-more-centered_large.jpg" alt="pres-more-centered_large.jpg (175x30)px" title="pres-more-centered_large.jpg (175x30)px" width="175" height="30" /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="http://s3.amazonaws.com/macu/documents/1369/President_Maurice_Bio.pdf">John Maurice Bio</a> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <p>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 08 Oct 2019 11:14:35 -0400 http://www.macuniversity.edu/about/office-of-the-president Ongoing Care http://www.macuniversity.edu/safety/title-ix-sexual-violence/ongoing-care <p><span> </span></p> <p>Students may seek assistance at any time from the <a href="http://www.macuniversity.edu/safety/support-services">University Counseling Services</a> (&ldquo;UCS&rdquo;) at no additional charge.
