It's hard for me to believe that ten years have passed since the last comprehensive reaccredidation. I served as co-chair of the self-study and have great appreciation and empathy for the work of this year's steering committee, and especially the work of the co-chairs, Karen Kirkendall, Karen Moranski, and Beverly Bunch. These dedicated faculty and staff have succeeded in drafting an outstanding self-study report, but one that still requires review and input from all segments of the campus. I encourage you to participate in the self-study process by reviewing the documents and attending the forums that are planned. I am confident that the reaccredidation site visit next October will prove to be a very affirming experience for the campus, both in terms of recognition for our recent accomplishments and validation of our vision for the future.
