Columbus State's second Systems Portfolio has been submitted to the Higher Learning Commission, the college's accreditation agency. The report is a key part of the college's AQIP accreditation pathway.
Nine campus research teams produced almost two hundred pages of initial data and analysis. Core team members Ingrid Emch, Bruce Massis and Antoinette Perkins assimilated the material into a draft portfolio. Multiple stakeholders provided feedback for their areas of the document and Valerie Wilson completed the final edits, with design by Paul Rehg.
Faculty Fellow Greg Goodhart, Interim Chairperson - Mathematics, served as the Project Manager and Polly Owen, Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, served as the Administrative Manager.
A year in the making, the final 124-page report answers some 140 questions about quality processes, results and improvements at the college.
The Higher Learning Commission will review the portfolio and provide a Systems Appraisal Feedback Report in February 2014. The college will then have the opportunity to incorporate the feedback into its continuous quality journey.
