Chair Phillip Schroeder called the meeting to order at 4:00 p.m.
Assessment Website: our reviews and suggestions. Phillip again reminded the members to check their bios and to review the content of the website. Stephanie Elder’s appointment as a Team member and bio needs to be included.
Progress Report: Assessment Plans and Observations reviews. Wrenette has entered the reviewers’ information into the system. Both academic and non-academic units will be notified of the Team’s recommendation. Wrenette provided a scenario where a Team member utilized their feedback in a staff training session to make improvements to their area.
1- to 2-minute presentations each addressing what has been done, what we are currently doing, and what you are going to do in the next 2 weeks for your Unit publicity. We can steal (borrow) from each other. A few members commented that they have conducted staff meetings to discuss what to expect during the HLC team visit, emailed their colleagues about the new web page and other pertinent information pertaining to assessment, and have received feedback. Phillip encouraged the other members to communicate with their respective areas as well. A suggestion was also made to purchase “Henderson Welcomes the Higher Learning Commission” banners to hang outside of Womack and the Garrison Center. Dr. Miles was asked to address the faculty one additional time prior to the site visit reminding the faculty the purpose of the visit and what to expect.
Dr. Miles briefly addressed the HLC agenda. After the site visit, Wrenette and Phillip will begin meeting with the Team in
departmental meetings. Ginger will disseminate the Assessment Brief both electronically and as a hard copy.
The next scheduled meeting is set for 4:00 p.m., February 6, 2012. There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4:50 p.m.
