2 What is the Reaffirmation Process? The Principles of Accreditation provide for: InstitutionCompliance Certification includes: 16 Core Requirements (CR) except 2.12* 57 Comprehensive Standards (CS) 7 Federal Requirements (FR) 3 Responsibilities; (Sub Changes, other Commission policies, Representation of accreditation status) *Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) CR 2.12 & CS 3.3.2 CommissionOff-Site Peer Review of Compliance Certification *except CR 2.12 & CS 3.3.2 CommissionOn-Site Peer Review of *QEP & CR with issues CommissionCommission Review of Results and Judgment 2

3  Institution makes the case for compliance for each ◦ Core Requirement ◦ Comprehensive Standard ◦ Federal Requirement  Case is supported with documentation, relevant data, and an explanatory narrative  Non-compliance judgment on Core Requirement results in automatic sanction 3

4  Degree-granting Authority  Governing Board  Chief Executive Officer  Institutional Mission and Effectiveness  Continuous Operation  Program Length and Content  General Education  Degree Program Course Work  Faculty Qualifications & Adequacy  Learning Resources and Services  Student Support Services  Financial and Physical Resources  Acceptable QEP 4

5  Mission, Governance and Effectiveness  Educational Programs (Undergraduate, Graduate, Professional)  Faculty  Library and Learning Resources  Student Affairs and Services  Financial Resources  Physical Resources 5

6  CR 2.12 – includes an institutional process for identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment and focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution  CS 3.3.2 – demonstrates institutional capability; includes broad-based involvement; and identifies goals and a plan to assess their achievement 6

9 CR 2.8 and CS 3.7.1

10  Institution employs competent faculty qualified to accomplish the missions  Institution gives primary consideration to the highest earned degree in the discipline  Institution considers competence, effectiveness, capacity, including undergrad/grad degrees, work experiences, professional licensure, certifications, honors/awards, documented excellence in teaching 10

11  Evidence about how the institution determines the competencies of faculty and justifies that the qualification of the faculty person meets these competencies: ◦ Reviews Transcript (college and provost level review) ◦ Digitizes transcripts for SACS Faculty Roster ◦ Assigns CIP codes to each faculty member’s graduate degrees and each course taught by the faculty person ◦ Department chairs enter a justification for each instructor and teaching assignment that does not satisfy SACS logic ◦ Validate international transcripts of faculty 11

12  2002 SACS Reaffirmation UK was cited non- compliant as related to faculty competence 3.7.1  In response, UK developed Faculty Database (FDB) under the leadership of Diane Gagel  FBD allows UK to make faculty credentialing checks at time of hire and each semester at the course level ◦ Procedures involve CIP codes, dept. chair justifications of faculty credentials at the course- level 12

22 UnitReview of Strategic PlanReview of Annual Progress Report College of Fine Arts Very well done--14 objectives (1.1-5.2); all aligned to unit goals and UK goals; missing metrics Effort made--Strategies and assessment methods are very general, lack specificity; actual results, analyses, and improvement actions have place holders, no "real" data 22

23 UnitReview of Strategic PlanReview of Annual Progress Report ArtVery good start— 14 objectives. (1.2-5.2) all aligned to UK goals; effective use of description; missing unit goals and metrics; need to review mission area Clearly articulated strategies; for some objectives, need assistance with assessment methods, reporting results (e.g., descriptor of sample size and outcomes), analyses--often read like results reporting, and at times writing of improvement actions were more like analyses 23

24 UnitReview of Strategic PlanReview of Annual Progress Report Arts Administration (Review is based on strategic plan as a Word document) Excellent --- 10 Objectives (1.1 - 5.2); clearly identified UK Goals, Unit Goals, and Unit metrics; Expect to be entered into Bb Outcomes and '09-'10 and '10- 11 years completed by Oct. 31, 2011 deadline 24

25 UnitReview of Strategic PlanReview of Annual Progress Report MusicUnit needs to revisit placement of its strategic plan and Annual Progress Report. As it stands, there is no strategic plan in place. The strategic plan should be under "Improvement Initiatives" and reassign a new name for the unit's "Improvement Project." Once the unit has everything in its place, then it can address the missing pieces: no UK goal, unit goal, and metric alignment to unit objectives. Also needs to develop common naming convention for unit goals, objective, and metrics Incomplete reporting—Very good objectives and strategies; no assessment methods, actual results, analyses, and improvement actions 25

26 UnitReview of Strategic PlanReview of Annual Progress Report TheatreGood Attempt--- 13 objectives ( no naming conventions for unit identification) -- need assistance with naming objectives and identifying unit goals, metrics; objectives aligned to UK goals alignments, and objective mission; has not completed any of the annual progress report. All that is done is the completion of objectives 26

27  As of August 1, 2011, the University of Kentucky is not in compliance with comprehensive standard, due to incomplete evidence of student learning outcomes assessment and improvement.  All educational programs are asked to enter annual Improvement Action Plans with these criteria: ◦ Outcomes ◦ Methods of Assessment ◦ Benchmark/Target ◦ Results ◦ Analysis ◦ Improvement Action 27
