The Compliance Certification for SACS has been submitted. Almost everyone on campus played some part in putting this report together and I wanted to thank you for your help in completing this very important project. I particularly wanted to thank our IE Office (Rachelle, Carol, and Sarah Chitwood) for the countless hours spent compiling this report; the Steering Committee (Dr. Sandel, Cheryl Miller, Angela Falconetti, and Lori Baker) for the work that you did in reviewing this; and our faculty editors (Brad Burkholder, Betsy Collier, and Sarah Burns) for the work that you did to proof and check links.
The Compliance Certification is the first step of the process. In May we will get the results and spend the summer writing a Focused Report which is due in August along with our QEP report. Our On-Site visit is in October. Then the final step will be to write of Focused Report to respond to the On-Site visit. We have crossed a huge hurtle with the completion of the Compliance Report, but our work is not done. Your continued support and assistance are critical as we move forward to the final three steps.
Thank you for your help thus far and I look forward to making continuing progress toward our successful reaffirmation!
The Feeding America Hunger Study will start next month- VOLUNTEER AND INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES are available! Volunteers are needed to help with the client survey by working in teams to visit assigned food distribution sites throughout Southwest Virginia to randomly select clients for a computer-based interview. Teams of 3 to 4 will be paired with a food pantry, shelter, or soup kitchen to conduct client interviews. This great opportunity allows volunteers to learn more about hunger in their community.
