Hebrew Summer Session in the News

July 16, 2014

http://www.dailyadvance.com/features/13-students-learning-hebrew-mid-atlantic-2536055 13 Students learning Hebrew at Mid-Atlantic By Corinne Saunders The Daily Advance Monday, July 14, 2014   Two teachers chattered enthusiastically to each other in ancient Hebrew about a tree growing, which they demonstrated by setting increasingly large twigs in buckets in the center of their classroom. Students aptly responded to the teachers’ questions in the language some had only begun to learn two weeks ago. These 13 students representing five countries are learning ancient Hebrew through a communicative method in a beginning, four-week course the Biblical Language Center of Jerusalem, Israel, is running at Mid-Atlantic Christian University. Jordan Jones of Spartanburg, S.C., said last Monday that she had never even looked at the Hebrew alphabet before starting the class, but after just two weeks, she can already read and speak ancient Hebrew. “They make it interesting; the teachers are very active (and) very expressive,” Jones said. In using “total physical response,” students are not only hearing the language but making real-life connections, and “you retain a lot more.” BLC Founder Randall Bluth said these are the first beginner communicative classes on the ancient Biblical languages offered in the United States.

Mid-Atlantic Christian University Response to Clery Act Findings

July 15, 2014

Elizabeth City, NC – Following a single tragic event on the campus of Mid-Atlantic Christian University in October  2010, the Department of Education’s (DOE) Clery Act Compliance Team conducted a routine compliance review of safety and reporting procedures. On January 30, 2014 the DOE released its Final Program Review Determination. The report findings determined that the university has satisfactorily addressed several reporting/policy violations and their underlying causes.  This closes the action initiated by the DOE. As is typically done after such tragic events, the DOE conducted a review to “evaluate Mid-Atlantic’s compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statics Act (Clery Act) and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989.  Reviewers  focused  especially on “the University’s adherence to its ‘Timely Warning’ policy in response to the shooting incident.” The review determined “that the University acted in a compliant manner in this instance.” The DOE expanded its review to include an examination of the University’s reports, records, policies, and procedures relating to campus safety and security, as well as drug and alcohol abuse prevention. Some violations in these areas were cited but were generally technical or administrative in nature. There is...
