The ALO Luncheon & Forum
Building on the feedback from Accreditation Liaison Officers (ALOs) during last year’s forum, WSCUC staff have been working with experienced team evaluators and ALOs on a methodology to identify effective examples of institutional reports. During the forum, these evaluators and ALOs will present a couple of examples of Components 3 and 4 from reports for comprehensive reviews under the 2013 Handbook of Accreditation. A Q&A session will provide ALOs the opportunity to ask questions and engage in conversation about the examples. During the second half of the forum, staff will solicit feedback about a potential review of WSCUC Standards, asking if ALOs would advise minor or major revisions to the Standards; what changes might be recommended, and, how soon should a review and possible revisions occur? Of course, the 2019 ALO Luncheon and Forum will feature ample networking opportunities for ALOs and time to discuss key initiatives with WSCUC staff.
