Instructions: Briefly describe in narrative form the process of report preparation, providing the names and titles of those involved. Because of the focused nature of an Interim Report, the widespread and comprehensive involvement of all institutional constituencies is not normally required. Faculty, administrative staff, and others should be involved as appropriate to the topics being addressed in the preparation of the report. Campus constituencies, such as faculty leadership and, where appropriate, the governing board, should review the report before it is submitted to WASC, and such reviews should be indicated in this statement.
Faculty and administrative staff were involved in the preparation and review of the Interim Report. Graham Oberem, Associate Vice President of Planning and Academic Resources and WASC ALO, and Jennifer Jeffries, School of Education Faculty and former ALO, prepared a draft of the report. Information for the draft was obtained in meetings with those directly involved with addressing the issues identified by the Commission and by reviewing annual reports of the Graduation Initiative and First Year Council, specific website links, and data provided by Institutional Planning and Analysis.
Sections of the report were provided to appropriate faculty leaders and administrative staff for review and feedback. They were:
David Barsky Associate Vice President, Academic Programs
Staci Beavers Faculty Chair, Academic Senate Budget and Long Range Planning Committee
Bridget Blanshan Dean of Students & Associate Vice President for Student Development Services
Andres Favela Director, Undergraduate Advising Services
Sharon Hamill Faculty, Director of Academic Assessment
Jeffrey Marks Deputy Director, Institutional Planning and Analysis
Lorena Meza Associate Vice President, Student Academic Support Services
Pat Morris Research Analyst, Institutional Planning and Analysis
Joann Pederson Faculty, Associate Director First Year Programs
Dilcie Perez Director, Student Life and Leadership
Linda Shaw Faculty Chair, Academic Senate Program and Assessment Committee
Eloise Stiglitz Vice President for Student Affairs
The report was reviewed in its entirety by:
Karen Haynes President
Emily Cutrer Provost and Vice President, Academic Affairs
Jackie Trischman President, Academic Senate
The final report will be shared with the President’s Executive Council for review and posted on the campus website.
