Opinions Requested

October 22, 2010

Dear Colleagues,

We need your expertise and your help.

As you know, the accreditation process is well under way. Many of you have volunteered to serve on Accreditation Standards Teams and are working on the self-study, which we appreciate very much.

Even if you were not available to serve on a team, you can make a valuable contribution by participating in a survey of all faculty and staff — a critical element of the self-evaluation process. Students are being asked to complete their own online survey, so please encourage your students to participate as well.

The survey (see link below) will be available from today through Monday, Nov. 1. It should take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and will only be reported in the aggregate. You may skip any questions you do not wish to answer.

Please be in touch with any of us if you need further information, or contact new college researcher Mallory Newell at ext. 8777 or district Executive Director of Institutional Research & Planning Andrew LaManque at ext. 6187.

Your input is critical to the work of the Accreditation Standards teams being conducted this fall. Thank you for participating.

The survey is available at http://www.research.fhda.edu/cgi-bin/rws3.pl?FORM=accreditationda
