|2000-2004 WASC Accreditation|
scheduled for reaffirmation of accreditation in 2004 by the Western
Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Since the last time the campus
was accredited in 1994, the review process has been revised considerably.
Under the new process, each institution is asked to propose a self-study
that is focused on issues germane to its particular mission, stage of
development and institutional context. There is considerable leeway in
selecting topics, although there must be an emphasis on undergraduate
educational effectiveness and demonstration of student learning.
The purpose of WASC’s revised approach to institutional review is to provide institutions with a review cycle more connected to each institution’s context and stage of development, more aligned with institutional priorities, and more focused on educational effectiveness.
Our proposal, which will guide the entire review process, is due in Spring 2002, with an Institutional Capacity review scheduled for Spring 2004 and an Educational Effectiveness review planned in Spring 2005.
The campus WASC Review Steering Committee, co-chaired by Vice Provost & Dean Bill Ladusaw and Academic Senate Vice-Chair Faye Crosby, will develop the educational effectiveness review documents in support of the next visiting team visit.
Guidelines for this process are highlighted in the campus document, "Description of the New WASC Accreditation Process" (PDF), and can also be found in their entirety on the WASC website at: http://www.wascweb.org/senior/handbook.pdf.
