Pacific's WSCUC Reaccreditation Process

During the Fall 2016 semester, Pacific commenced the two-year process of reaccreditation by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).  Pacific's Reaccreditation Steering Committee and Working Groups composed of faculty, staff, and students from across the university (see membership roster below) began working on Pacific's self-study data collection. 

Throughout the 2016-17 academic year, Steering committee chair Tamara Phelan, Professor of Physical Therapy and Assistant Vice Provost for Educational Effectiveness, Cyd Jenefsky, Vice Provost for Strategy and Educational Effectiveness, and members of the Steering Committee visited with a wide-range of campus stakeholder committees and forums to discuss the team's preliminary findings from Pacific's self-review study.  The Steering Committee reconvened this Fall 2017 to develop full self-study essays, obtain coummunity feedback on a final draft of the self-study report in Spring 2018, and meet the report submission deadline of June 2018.  Learn more about Pacific's reaccreditation process on the SharePoint site.
