Our current institutional self-evaluation report (ISER) process began with a meeting of the Accreditation Steering Committee on August 20, 2020, where a preliminary discussion on recruitment and timeline took place. The ALO and faculty co-chair then sent a recruitment memo via email to the entire campus. In conjunction with the Academic Senate President and AFT 1521A Chapter Chair, tri-chairs were identified for each standard group. A training for all tri-chairs was conducted by the ACCJC on October 22. Further recruitment continued for team members, culminating in a campus-wide kickoff event on November 6, 2020. The ISER teams listed below are now beginning evidence collection and report writing will commence in 2021. As the standard teams gather data and evidence, additional mega-meetings are planned for each semester to ensure dialogue and communication across all standards.
