Report of the Invitational Colloquium on Self-Assessment of Postsecondary Programs Sponsored by the Regents' Project on Self-Assessment for Colleges and Universities.
Tritschler, Donald, Ed.
A colloquium on self-assessment of postsecondary programs was held for colleges interested in developing self-assessment beyond what is included for the accreditation process. The colloquium was attended by almost all of the 15 colleges that were members of the Task Force on Self-Assessment for New York State. Topics of the meeting included: the role of self-assessment in institutional planning and change, the budgetary and staff support that make self-assessment continuous, the use of consultants and other resources for objective review, ways to ensure that self-assessment will result in decisions and action, and the relation of self-assessment to accreditation. An address entitled "Concern for Self-Assessment," by Robert A. Plane, was followed by a panel discussion by the following university representatives: Richard Alfred, Rita Arthur, Ronald C. Brach, Joseph Burke, William Dempsey, and Vincent Toscano. Discussions were also held separately for liberal arts colleges, large colleges and universities, two-year colleges, and technical colleges. Alvin P. Lierheimer spoke on "Accreditation and Self-Assessment," and five workshops were held. Two workshops on long-range planning concerned program reorganization and staff development, and identifying goals and the value of a data base. Two workshops on curricular review concerned developing a continuous system and emphasizing outcomes. The final workshop was on gathering institutional support for self-assessment. (SW)
