Documenting Faculty Credentials in Technical Colleges for Accreditation.
Findlen, George L.
This document contains a set of materials to help technical colleges preparing for an accreditation visit. Although the details come from the Wisconsin Technical College System and pertain to the North Central Association (NCA), they can be modified to fit the circumstances of technical colleges in other states and in other regional accrediting associations. To prepare for an accreditation visit, therefore, the college needs to look anew at their faculty's credentials to determine if they meet the accrediting association's standard. The materials include the following: (1) a cover letter, highlighting the upcoming NCA accreditation visit, asking faculty for details about their credentials; (2) a survey form which accompanied the cover letter for faculty to record their credential information, so as to allow the college to determine which faculty members fulfill the agency's requirements; (3) the structure of a Microsoft Access database into which survey data was entered, which is supplied in order to permit readers of this document to replicate it; (4) a sheet which describes the fields used in the database; and (5) sample data from four fictitious faculty.
