Coming to a web site near you: Self-Study, Draft 2
University of Wisconsin-Parkside faculty and staff will soon have their second--and final--opportunity to comment on the accreditation self-study. The document is expected to be available on the web Thursday, Nov. 15.
Accreditation co-chair Rob Barber said our colleagues writing the self-study have spent the past six weeks incorporating campus comments and polishing the prose in preparation for your review.
"Our criterion chairs are working diligently to respond to comments received and provide additions and enhancements to ensure the document accurately, completely, and fairly represents evidence of how UW-Parkside is achieving its mission," Barber said. "We are excited to be able to present our colleagues and the public this next version of the self-study."
Co-chair Kim Kelley said while the text is the most important part of the self-study, how it is presented is also important. Calling the template "lovely," Kelley expects the HLC to be impressed by the final self-study document.
"Our goal with this next version is to have it within the design template that will be used for the final document. The design template uses color and illustrations to effectively present our self-study to the Evaluation Team and the Higher Learning Commission," Kelley said.Barber and Kelley are hoping for a strong campus-wide response to this next version of the self-study as the university prepares the final document to share with the HLC.
