Room 5114 - 1:30 p.m.
Joey Fronheiser, Accreditation Liaison
Irene Wheeler, Chair
The meeting was called to order by Irene Wheeler, Chair.
Ms. Wheeler has been asked to provide Dr. Capps with weekly updates on the progress of the Compliance Certificate. Beginning next week she will provide updates using an Excel spreadsheet that includes the information from the Compliance Assist Dashboard. She asked committee members to send her their status as soon as possible, but no later than Monday, August 13, and she will include that in the comments.
There are no new items to review by the committee for today’s meeting, but committee members are continuing to work on their assigned requirements.
Beginning Thursday, August 23 the committee will begin weekly meetings from 1:00 – 3:00 every Thursday.
Dr. Fronheiser advised the committee that Dr. Mark Smith, Vice President of SACS will be visiting campus on August 22-23. He will meet with the Compliance Certificate Committee on Thursday, August 23 at 9:00 a.m. Dr. Fronheiser asked for input on possible questions for Dr. Smith.
Dr. Fronheiser and Mr. Sandidge provided feedback from a recent phone conversation with Dr. Smith. They emphasized the importance of framing our writing to tell the story of CVCC and to be sure to write as though your audience is someone who knows nothing about CVCC or the VCCS.
Mr. Poole explained that from his own experience as an evaluator the focus will be on what policies and practices are in place now – not to dwell on the past.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:15 p.m. The next meeting will be held on August 23, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. with Dr. Mark Smith with a regular meeting August 23 at 1:00 p.m.
