We would like to invite all participants of the inaugural 2012 West Texas Assessment Conference to lunch sponsored by the Office of Planning and Assessment at TTU and the Office of Institutional Planning and Assessment at TTUHSC. During this lunch, we are excited to feature our keynote speaker, Dr. Kevin Stoker .

Accreditation is often perceived in very absolute terms – that is, you’re either on the “good side” or the “bad side.”  What are some of the strengths and opportunities that accreditation affords?  Faculty play a significant role in the accreditation process, and it’s critical to include them on the journey to writing a Reaffirmation report or Fifth Year Interim report.  Join Dr. Kevin Stoker as he discusses his own perceptions of SACSCOC after attending the annual December 2011 SACSCOC meeting.
