General Timeline

The Washburn University Self Study Accreditation Steering Committee has designed a schedule that encourages the entire WU community to be actively engaged in the self study process by providing several opportunities for all members of the community to contribute to the self-study and to offer comments on the developing self-study report.

Spring, Summer  and early Fall 2006
Subcommittees gather information from units. As a component of their existing assessment process, units are encouraged to identify strengths and opportunities to be addressed in the self-study. Develop working drafts of criteria responses (subcommittees).

Refine working drafts and develop evidence library. Engage constituents in a discussion of the purpose served by the self-study.
