The University of California, San Diego is hosting a site visit in connection with its reaffirmation of accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) on October 14-16, 2009.
On Thursday, October 15, 2009, members of the visiting review team will conduct the following open meetings with students, staff, and faculty in order to provide an opportunity for informal input from the campus community:
Student Forum: 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Staff Forum: 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Faculty Forum: 4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Understanding that some who wish to participate will not be available to attend these meetings, the WASC review team is hosting a confidential email site so that everyone from the campus community will have the opportunity to communicate with the team regarding their experience with the institution. The comments are sent directly to the review team chair and are not viewed by any representative of UC San Diego. Individuals who wish to send comments to the review team are encouraged to do so.
Institutional reports, on-campus interviews, open sessions, and email responses become part of the information collected and reviewed by the team. Team members will not respond individually to comments provided through any of these venues, including those made through the confidential email account. This input, along with other forms of information, will be considered as the team undertakes its work and develops recommendations to the institution. Only comments received prior to and during the site visit dates will be considered as part of the review process. To offer confidential input to the WASC review team, please address your email to:
This email address is a secure location to which only authorized WASC Review team members have access. Students, faculty, and staff may comment directly to the team via this email address, which has been created by WASC for this use only. The site will be terminated at the end of the visit.
You are encouraged to participate in our institutional reaffirmation of accreditation by either attending one of the three open meetings or by communicating with the WASC team via the above email address.
