Does Your Team Ask These Questions?

This webinar will provide the answers!

  • Are one or more of your programs caught in a continuous cycle of interim monitoring?
  • What should you tackle first?
  • How much time is needed?
  • How many people are needed?

Unsure how to prioritize?

Uncertainty about where to start and how to prioritize can immobilize steering committees, particularly during times of limited funding for conference, travel, and consultants.

Priorities, opportunities, and outlines for project plans will be discussed.

Suggestions for resource allocation, both human and fiscal, will be provided.

Need strategies?

Dr. Welsh will review strategies for aligning reports and evidence with institutional goals while avoiding familiar snares and pitfalls that lead to citations.

Although accreditation reports and visits differ according to region and professional accrediting body, the presenter will focus on expectations common to site visiting teams representing a variety of academic and professional fields and geographic locations.
