Accreditation Themes Academic and Co-Curricular Support Structures

Academic and Co-Curricular Support Structures

The Academic and Co-Curricular Support Structures theme reflects Caltech's deepening commitment to the expansion of offices, programs, and initiatives designed to help our community members flourish. A comprehensive examination and evaluation of these structures provides an opportunity to focus on Standard One, "Defining Institutional Purposes and Ensuring Educational Objectives", Standard Two, "Achieving Educational Objectives through Core Functions", Standard Three, "Developing and Applying Resources and Organizational Structures to Ensure Quality and Sustainability", and Standard Four, "Creating an Organization Committed to Quality Assurance, Institutional Learning, and Improvement". Thorough review and assessment of support structures will be conducted by Caltech's Institutional Research Office; with longitudinal data from the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach, the Caltech Center for Diversity, the Hixon Writing Center, Student-Faculty Programs, the Caltech Y, the Graduate Studies Office, and the Dean of Undergraduate Students Office.
