SBS representatives/superstars/ Katy French and Katie Townsend-Merino were both presenters at this years’ well-received Accreditation Institute. The session was called “A.II.B or Not II.B (and let alone II.C) That is the Student and Learning Support Services Question.” The official schedule can be found here:
Katy addressed the importance of aligning a service area’s mission, goals and outcomes with the institution’s mission, goals and outcomes. She also addressed how to develop and assess service area outcomes, and how to use existing data for outcomes assessment. Her presentation is available here.
Katie was asked to present on integrated planning (one of her personal passions) and institutionalizing accreditation work to decrease the slope of the overall work increase as we approach accreditation. We are very fortunate to have this kind of knowledge and leadership at Palomar- thank you Katy/ies (and Michelle!).
