Educational Effectiveness Review (EER)
September 14 – 16, 2011
A three-step process on our part plus a one-step WASC Commission action
Final Step: WASC Commission will issue their accreditation recommendation in February 2012.
EER report addresses themes in this order:
Theme 3: Learning as an Institution
Theme 2: Faculty and Staff Support for University Success
Theme 1: Student Success through Engagement in Learning
What we learned as an institution(Theme 3) powered the changes described in Themes 1 and 2.
The report describes three major initiatives undertaken by CSUN since 2000.
1) Graduation Rates Task Force
2) General Education Task Force
3) Envision 2035 (Campus Master Plan)
Key findings about what matters most in a successful change process:
1)identify clear objective(s) and timeline
2)select the “right” leaders
3)engage all stakeholders
4)gain support of administration
5)communicate widely through accepted channels
6)set up efficient structure
