Preparatory Review Report


As part of the accreditation process, the campus is required to submit its Preparatory Review Report to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) by December 20, 2007. The Preparatory Review Report describes current operational systems, institutional capacity, and campus procedures, programs and services that ensure WASC Standards and corresponding Criteria for Review (CFR) are being met. The report package is divided into three sections:

Drafts of these documents are posted, by section, for general campus review and comment. Special Consultant Robert Gill will collect the campus comments and provide them to the WASC Steering Committee for consideration and action. The window for making comments on any or all of the three sections is from Wednesday, November 14, 2007, to Wednesday, December 5, 2007.

There are three ways of responding:
