Academic Affairs Forum: Charting Our Campus Future

Academic Affairs Forum
Robert “Ray” Young, associate vice president of academic programs, left, and Ephraim Smith, vice president of academic affairs, chat briefly with Ralph Wolff, president and executive director of Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) before his keynote address at the Jan. 17 Academic Affairs Forum, “Charting Our Campus Future.”

Smith welcomed the campus members in attendance and Young introduced the session, which focused on the issue of how universities are proving that they are working efficiently and are accountable for their work. Wolff followed on a similar vein and talked about how universities, through accreditation, can prove they are being accountable and efficient. He urged CSUF, which is beginning the reaccreditation process, to use the self-assessment to tell the university’s story in meeting its mission and goals, diversity and other achievements.
