Based on feedback from our Self-Study Forum participants we have revitalized the Self-Study Forum agenda to bring you a new and improved format! The renewed program includes more time spent on the standards, more real-life examples, more interactive guidance, and less redundancy. You can expect to see the following benefits from Self-Study Forum attendance:

  • In-depth analysis and application of the 2017 Standards and Criteria
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the Self-Study Report expectations
  • Get ready for Peer Review
  • Demystify the accreditation process
  • Participate in networking opportunities
  • Earn continuing education credit

Furthermore, we are now offering an additional post-session CEU opportunity titled “Taking it to the Next Level: Tackling Standards 4 and 6 Head On” focusing on the most challenging lessons learned during the forum and how to avoid the most common pitfalls. Participants of the post-session will walk away with a deeper understanding of the connections between the most commonly cited criteria in Standard 4 and Standard 6. Bring your own systematic plan of evaluation including the end-of-program student learning outcomes and we will help you apply the 2017 Standards and Criteria to your own program.

Finally, we heard you loud and clear, and moving forward, WiFi will be available at all of our Self-Study Forums!
