ALO Workshop and Luncheon: The Accreditation Liaison Officer: Bridge, Channel, and Advocate

Ted Mitchell will address ALOs via live video link from Washington DC to reflect on the role of regional accreditation from the national perspective. This workshop focuses on the multiple critical roles of the ALO as the point of contact between WSCUC and the institution. It is an opportunity to refresh traditional expectations, introduce new ones, welcome new colleagues, and share successful practices. Since the ALO responds to expectations from both the institution and the agency, staying current is a critical necessity. A grab-and-go box lunch will be available upon entrance so the program can begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. It will conclude at 3:00.
