This year, Lane Community College is undergoing its comprehensive seven-year self-evaluation. A big part of the evaluation entails a visit by peer evaluators for the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, which is the organization that accredits LCC as well as other institutions in the region such as the University of Oregon.
These peer evaluators are volunteer faculty and administrators from other colleges, trained by NWCCU. They will be coming to LCC on Oct. 29, 30 and 31. During their visit they will want to visit with students, faculty, staff, and Board of Education members to hear how LCC is doing.
Students are invited to participate in the accreditation process. A special session will be held where students, who want to have their voices heard, can share their experiences at Lane. A student forum with the peer evaluators will be held on Oct. 29, CML 214, 1:40 p.m. to 2:40 p.m.
An Accreditation Preparation Workshop is being held on Thursday, Oct. 23 in the Boardroom in Building 3 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Food and refreshments will be provided.
