5. Meeting of the program advisory committee with the visiting committee. It is suggested that a luncheon or breakfast meeting on the first day of the visit be planned. Following the meal function, the visiting committee will wish to meet privately with the advisory committee to learn about the community’s involvement with the program. Faculty members should not be included. 6. If the program utilizes an extended campus facility(ies) for clinical experience, the visiting committee will wish to visit this facility. 7. A final conference, with the administrator of the program will be conducted on the last day of the visit. The visiting committee will, at that time, summarize its recommendations relating to the educational program. The program administrator may choose to include other individuals, such as faculty members, in the final conference. 8. Following the final conference with the program administrator, another conference, with the institution’s chief executive officer will be conducted. The visiting committee will report briefly on the findings and recommendations related to the evaluation. Such a meeting also affords the chief executive officer an opportunity to relate plans for the entire institution that will involve the dental program. The administrator of the program is usually present during the conference with the institution’s administrator(s). Guidelines and Protocol for the Site Visit : The Commission has approved the following guidelines for visiting committee members describing their responsibilities during site visits. 1. Committee members cannot accept social invitations from host administrators. The Commission believes firmly that the primary function of a visiting committee is program evaluation and review. 2. Self-study reports are mailed to committee members at least 60 days prior to a site visit. Committee members are expected to review all materials and to be familiar with academic and administrative aspects of the program as described in the self-study report prior to the site visit. 3. Committee members meet in executive sessions to review, evaluate and discuss all aspects of the program. An executive session is generally held in the evening preceding the first day of the site visit and at scheduled intervals during the site visit. 72

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
