I am in despair over our report from ACCJC, our accrediting body. I spent all last year editing the mass of "prose" written by faculty and staff at our institution and spent who-knows-how-many hours at meetings with administrators to get the job done.
We got the verdict today, and it's not good. Some of it seems bogus to me. But we are under their thumb, and I'm sure there really isn't much we can do except click our heels and get busy. But everyone at the college is so tired from doing last year's self-study (when we were seriously lacking in administrative leadership), and now we've got to re-navigate and turn around a ship that feels like it's sinking under these massive budget cuts and an overwhelming amount of work and reorganization.
So, shall we talk student learning outcomes?
