Fifth Year Report

On March 10, 2005, an organizational meeting was convened for the purpose of beginning the response for the NEASC Fifth-Year-Interim Document. With this meeting, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Diane Lapkin, initiated the institutional process for reviewing and writing the Fifth-Year Report. The organizational meeting gathered together to create a Task Force composed of administrators, faculty, and students, to prepare the Fifth-Year Interim Report. The Task Force members reflected a wide cross-section of participants in the community. Dr. Neal DeChillo, Dean of the Schools of Human Services, and Dr. Marc Glasser, Dean of the Graduate School, were designated as Co-Chairs.

In conjunction with the instituting of the Steering Committee, the President of the College, Dr. Nancy Harrington, informed the community-at-large of the review underway. The Steering Committee oversaw the creation of the working teams responsible for addressing and writing to each revised standard. The teams met over the spring and summer of 2005 to collate and present data responding to the concerns of NEASC and the revised standards.
