Core team leader Ingrid Emch (left) with Category Six researchers Patricia Opong and Mike Wright. Nine teams are working on the second Systems Portfolio which is due November 1.
The second Systems Portfolio
The new portfolio - a complete rewrite of the 2009 original - is due to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) by November 1, 2013. It answers approximately 140 questions about Columbus State's Processes, Results and Improvements in nine organizational categories. Also embedded in the questions is evidence to demonstrate that Columbus State meets the five Criteria of accreditation.
The nine three-person teams - two faculty members/one staff – lead by Project Managers Antoinette Perkins, Ingrid Emch and Bruce Massis will wrap up their initial reports by the end of May. Especially important in this update are data-supported outcomes – how we measure what we say we do and design improvements accordingly.
The first Systems Portfolio
In November 2009, Columbus State Community College submitted its first Systems Portfolio to the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) of the Higher Learning Commission. The Systems Portfolio provides a 100 page 'snapshot'of CSCC's processes and data as of summer 2009.
In April 2010 AQIP reviewers responded to our Portfolio with their Appraisal Feedback Report. It includes the observations and recommendations of the AQIP team.
