Update Report: New Mexico State University at Carlsbad. Addendum to the "Report" (Books I-IV).
Cowen, Sonia S.
In February 1995, New Mexico State University's two-year branch campus at Carlsbad (NMSU-C) submitted a report to the North Central Association (NCA), responding to a 1992 accreditation visit and consisting of four books: (1) responses to NCA concerns and suggestions; (2) evidence of NMSU-C's fulfillment of NCA accreditation requirements and criteria; (3) appendixes; and (4) a plan for assessing student achievement. This report presents an update to the February report, describing the status of initiatives that have been implemented or are in-progress in preparation for a follow-up focus visit. Following a review of the process used in preparing the original report and the update, a general overview of progress made at the college from 1993 to 1995 is provided. The reports then provide specific updates for six NCA concerns and three suggestions addressed in Book One, evidence of fulfillment of one criteria and updated institutional data forms from Book Two, an updated organizational chart from Book Three, and two updated elements from the assessment plan in Book Four. Appendixes provide an information systems plan; a memo describing procedures for program review at the college, including a review cycle through the year 2000; a sample course description form; orientation materials for nursing faculty; a 1994-95 travel budget by department; minutes from a faculty development task force meeting; college guidelines for hiring faculty; updated NCA institutional data forms for spring 1995; and an updated organizational chart.
