Plan of Action

The Vice President of Instruction will create a 100% reassigned time for a faculty member to serve as a facilitator to work with instructional departments/areas, the Faculty Senate SLO Committee and the Curriculum Committee to ensure that the college will comply with the ACCJC requirements for implementation of course-level SLOs by 2012.
