Self-study Design

The Self-study Design is a document developed by the institution to serve as a guide for the Self-study process. It serves several purposes, including the following:

  • Serves as a blueprint for the self-study process, including the final Self-study Report.
  • Enables the Steering Committee and Working Groups to conceptualize and organize tasks relevant to self-study.
  • After completion and acceptance of the Self-study Design by the Commission vice president liaison, members of the Steering Committee and Working Groups can refer to it and ensure that the objectives contained in the Self-study Design are being met.
