2018 Accreditation Process

How the draft of UCR's self-study was created

In December of 2016 there was a “kickoff” meeting to brief key leaders from the academic senate, the deans’ offices and other faculty and administrators about the reaffirmation of accreditation process. Following that, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (and campus Accreditation Liaison Officer) convened an accreditation workgroup to begin assembling a draft of the institutional report. This has already involved meetings and discussions with individuals from across campus and will continue to do so. The workgroup completed a draft near the end of the spring quarter and shared it with the campus in the fall of 2017. The draft was revised in light of that feedback and will be submitted to WASC in January of 2018.

After reviewing the materials submitted in January 2018, a WASC Review Team outlined six Commendations and fourteen Lines of Inquiry in a videoconference Offsite Review with UCR leadership on April 10, 2018. The Offsite Review Summary of Lines of Inquiry document also outlined eleven additional documents which were submitted on August 15 by a subgroup of the Steering Committee and additional administrators as the work was largely completed during the summer months.
