The All New All Star ACCET Team Evaluator Workshop


This is what you’ve been waiting for. A chance to pick one or two of your best and brightest staff to train to participate as a team member on an ACCET site visit.

Why? Well, because team visits are fun. They are a chance to share great ideas with other great schools. A chance to give back to the peer review process that you have benefited from. A chance to make a difference for another school that will learn from you and you from them. A chance to make us all better for the benefit of students and their future employers. A chance for your school to be even better prepared for your next accreditation visit.

When? Sunday, November 2, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Where? ACCET Annual Conference, Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina, San Diego, CA

How Much? FREE. Lunch provided

Conditions: Registration is capped at 24 participants. Please no more than two registrants per institution.

How much fun will we have? Lots!
