Planning for IVC's third evaluation team visit began in the spring of 1997. At that time, faculty leadership was chosen by the Academic Senate, and an administrator was appointed as Accreditation Liaison Officer (ALO). The faculty chair of the self-study was given full release time. After the first semester of the process, release time was reduced collegewide, as a cost-saving measure. The first faculty self-study chair chose not to continue with nine LHE release time and in May of 1997, a second faculty self-study chair was recommended by the president and subsequently ratified by the Academic Senate. On March 1, 1998, that accreditation chair was appointed interim vice president of instruction. As a result, the president appointed the third faculty accreditation chair on March 23, 1998. All of these transitions have been well organized with little negative impact on the process.

 

The process has included a steering committee workshop with the executive director of the Accrediting Commission, periodic steering committee meetings, writing workshops, and all college forums. Prior to the completion of the first draft, all written materials, schedules, tips, and deadlines were made available on the IVC World Wide Web server (www.ivc.edu/accreditation/accred98.html). All of the draft reports were made available to all faculty, staff, administrators, and the students. In this way, more of the college community was aware of, and able to contribute to, the process than ever before.
