A major milestone

Meehan, University President, and Dr. Alicia Simmons, Director, Office of
Institutional Research and Assessment, presented plaques to the honorees:

the Bachelor of Social Work Program, Disability Support Services, Counseling
and Career Services, the Department of Art, the College of Nursing and Health

2006, the departments at JSU submitted self-studies following JSUís new Program
Review Self-Study requirements.† The
self-studies covered the mission and purpose of the unit, quality indicators,
demand for the unitís resources, the resources available to the unit, and any
additional information that the unit wanted to provide. These self-studies were
then sent to three reviewers (both JSU internal reviewers and external
reviewers) for study before on-site visits were scheduled. Recently accredited
units were exempt from the peer review portion.
self-studies and on-site reviews were completed, reports and recommendations for
all departments were forwarded to the appropriate Dean, Vice President and the
President.† Departments will use these
findings to develop goals and objectives to be documented in PRISM.
