PROTOCOL FOR CONDUCTING A SITE VISIT Introduction : The Commission recognizes that there may be considerable latitude in determining procedures and methodology for site visits. Experience has shown that the conference method for conducting a site visit is widely favored and has been found most satisfactory. Conferences with administrators and faculty should be scheduled in an adequately-sized and well-ventilated meeting room with a conference table which is large enough to accommodate the visiting committee and faculty member participants. It is suggested that all conferences be scheduled for the same room. If more than one program is to be evaluated, an additional conference room for each program (within close proximity) will be required.

    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.
