Accreditation Themes


The Provost, David Tirrell, will serve as the Academic Liaison Officer (ALO) to WSCUC and as the Accreditation Steering Committee Chair. The Accreditation Steering Committee will provide guidance regarding the accreditation process, opportunities for self-study and assessment, and preparation of our institutional report. Two thematic working groups will address the areas of self-study described in Caltech's TPR Proposal: the Core Curriculum, and Academic and Co-Curricular Support Structures. Each working group will assess the current status of campus activities and programs, report on progress that has been made since the last accreditation visit and the 2015 interim review, and recommend future actions that should be taken to improve outcomes in its thematic area.
