Accreditation committee to meet with administration,
A committee of eight distinguished academic administrators
will visit UCSC February 2-4 in the closing phase of the Western
Association of Schools and Colleges' (WASC) educational effectiveness
During this visit, they will consult with administrators and
faculty leadership to assess UCSCs commitment to "educational
effectiveness" as defined in the WASC criteria for review
and discuss several strategic issues with the campus leadership.

Educational effectiveness within the framework of this review
involves two things: whether students are successfully achieving
the learning objectives of UCSCs programs and whether
the institution has good processes for assessing and improving
Between Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, there will
be a series of meetings between members of the committee and
groups of faculty, staff, and students who have been invited
to address the particular topics that the visiting committee
submitted to the campus last week.
After the visit, the committee members, who have experience
at both public and private research universities, will write
a report to WASC about the visit and the campus review.
UCSC administrators expect to see that report sometime in late
March. After the report is made, the Western Association of
Schools and Colleges' Commission will meet to approve the full
review, taking action on UCSCs reaccreditation.
