CQI Steering Committee
Dr. David Tom Leads Accreditation Team
David Tom, Ph.D., associate professor in Psychology, is the new Faculty Fellow for Accreditation. Tom succeeds Greg Goodhart, Ph.D. who led the accreditation committee for two years.
Since 2011, Tom has been an accreditation steering committee member. He took part in the Higher Learning Commission campus visit in 2012. More recently, he helped write Category Four, Understanding Students' and Other Stakeholders' Needs, for the new 2013 Systems Portfolio.
Tom joined the Columbus State Department of Psychology staff in 2003. He completed his doctoral studies in Psychology two years later at Ohio State which recognized him as an "outstanding teacher."
Springtime in Chicago
Chicago will host the Higher Learning Commission's annual conference from April 10 to 14. The agency represents over 1300 colleges and universities in nineteen Midwestern and South-Central states.
Under discussion will be proposed tweaks to the AQIP pathway - making it an eight, not a seven year, process, and, adding an electronic student survey to the list of Campus Visit requirements.
