We’ve contacted all points and have had good responses from most. The rebuttal “nobody told me” will not hold. What will follow, should a program elect not to participate in this process, is simply an “absent” or zero rating on all 4 dimensions. Non-responsive programs will receive ongoing invitations to work with us. If by early spring there is no real effort to participate in this critical work, the exposure to WSU’s reaccreditation will need to be assessed and addressed by the Executive Council in collaboration with the Provost and Deans.
[Not all programs elected to respond to the December round. For the summer round, a number of programs were non-responsive in early September, when the Provost put out a call for all programs to respond, resulting in a last minute scramble. Ed.]
