Institutional Research and Effectiveness - IRE

Theme Selection

Western University is currently in an accreditation cycle with WASC. Six panels representing faculty, administrators and staff from across the institution will investigate six themes in two WASC review cycles, the Capacity and Preparatory Review and the Educational Effectiveness Review.

In the past, reaccreditation was considered an external process not necessarily perceived as meaningful to institutions’ specific and unique contexts. Some of you may recall that we surveyed the faculty and administration of the University regarding perspectives on where the University stood with respect to the various WASC standards, from this data we have identifed 6 themes that address WesternU’s specific needs and interests to be investigated by six Panels.
