Under the patronage of Prof. Waheeb Al-Khaja and with his active participation and support, the University President, Prof. Ghassan Aouad, organized a day-long Workshop called “Accreditation Day” on Thursday 18 January 2018 at the Dome Hall.
The objective of the workshop was to review the entirety of the SER (Self-Evaluation Report) for the institutional accreditation that has been drafted by the University and polished by the University’s external consultant.
The review exercise was focused on the 8 Areas of the institutional accreditation, so there were 8 round tables bringing together various teams from the different Colleges, Deanships, Departments and Directorates of the University. Over 40 staff members participated at the workshop which started at 9 am and concluded at 3:30 pm with a lunch break in-between.
“It was a fantastic day and demonstrated that the University has a very strong team spirit and all our colleagues are committed to contribute when needed.” Said Professor Ghassan of the event.
At the end of the workshop, the entirety of the 33 standards making up the SER were reviewed by the various teams assigned to them respectively, and the feedback was gathered shortly after on Word Documents with track change in order to share them with the consultant and all the concerned colleagues.
Once all these changes are incorporated in the final draft of the SER by the external consultant, the President will organize a second “Accreditation Day” to proofread the Report one final time before submission.
It is worth noting also that the review exercise resulted in the identification of a number of additional evidences / SMs (Supplementary Materials) that will be gathered throughout the weekto further endorse the SER.
