Dear Colleagues,

We wanted to let you know about preparations for our Accreditation Site Visit the week of Sept. 29 - Oct. 2, 2014.

First: Members of the Accreditation Steering Committee are available and eager to help train the campus!

  • If you have any meeting you would like accreditation trainers to attend between now and the visit, please let us know.  Topics can include specific standards related to your department or division, overall general training or/and what to expect during the visit, and how to get ready.
  • You are also welcome to attend any of the Accreditation Steering Committee meetings to ask any questions or express any concerns you might have.

The Accreditation Steering Committee will be meeting every Monday up to the visit at 2:00 pm in the PDC (room 3142)and N3213.

Second: Kevin and I will be sending out weekly e-mails featuring a Standard.  Next week will be Standard I, and following each week thereafter with Standard II, III, and IV – These emails will begin with a list of questions and the Standard summary at the end.  Everyone should be able to answer the questions, which are about what we as an institution are doing to meet the Standard.

Please be sure to e-mail your answers to these questions to: Kasey DeBernardi.

At the end of each week your submission will be entered into a drawing for a $10 gift card. Five lucky winners will be selected at random at the Accreditation Steering Committee meeting on Monday, September 29 at 2:00 pm.

Third: The Accreditation Steering Committee will be conducting trainings (i.e. mock interviews) of individuals that the visiting team will likely want to meet with when they are here. If you are one of the fortunate individuals, you will be notified of this opportunity and training will be scheduled.

Remember, this is our time to shine and demonstrate what we do well. We each contribute in unique ways and play key roles in making Cuesta College the outstanding institution it is.

We hope you enjoy the holiday weekend. Be sure to watch for the e-mail about Standard I next week.
