Hi! My name is Dorothy D. Wills. Usually,
I am a professor of Anthropology, as you will see in the rest
of my home page. From 1998 - early 2001, I will be working
on the Self-Study Report for Cal Poly's re-accreditation.
As Coordinator of the self-study,
my job is to organize the research and oversee the composition
of the analysis. Our findings and recommendations will
be publicized on campus during the Fall of 1999, and we will
be revising the report in response to input after that.
The visit from our regional accrediting organization (WASC) will
take place in October, 2000. You will find details about
the self-evaluation we are preparing for them, about other aspects
of the accreditation process, and about how you can contribute
on the WASC web site in Cal
Poly's home page.

of the World, which also contains links to Web pages for
studies of those languages.

extent by culture, and we cannot conceive of culture without
