Successful accreditation must meet WSCUC Standards and satisfy Criteria for Review. The process is described in WSCUC’s 2013 Handbook of Accreditation. At the end of the Winter 2017 term, the university has formed and charged the WSCUC Steering Committee. Furthermore, the university is working with Academic Senate and Divisional leaders to appoint members to the Working Groups that will write the institutional report under the auspices of the Steering Committee and the leadership of the Working Group Chair and Co-Chair. The Chair of each Working Group serves on the Steering Committee.
