Feedback wanted on new CSUMB Institutional Report

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) has been working since Spring 2016 to conduct an institutional self-study and draft a report as part of re-accreditation.  The Institutional Report is now available online and CSUMB wants campus feedback.

The report was prepared by committees comprised of CSUMB students, faculty, staff and administrators for review by the regional accrediting body, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). The report is the institution’s opportunity to demonstrate to the WSCUC visit team that it has met certain standards of performance, is aware of its own strengths and weaknesses, and continues to gather and use evidence to improve educational quality, according to Fran Horvath, Associate Vice President for Academic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness and one of the WSCUC steering committee co-chairs. The visit team will be on campus in Spring 2019.

“We are hoping to get as much feedback as possible before finalizing the report and submitting it to the WSCUC team this summer,” said Horvath. “Specific types of feedback we are looking for include events or ideas that have been left out, inaccurate information and additional evidence that could be included.”

The steering committee encourages all of the CSUMB campus to review the report and the “Institutional Report section of the 2013 Handbook of Accreditation Revised to understand the aims of each chapter and the prompts to which we are encouraged to respond.”

All of the materials can be found on the CSUMB website by searching for “WSCUC Re-Accreditation 2019.”  You can also access to comment form here.

Students will receive an email with links to the documents and form.

Feedback will be accepted through April 27. If you have questions, you can contact [email protected].
