Welcome to the FPU WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) Re-accreditation website. Every 7-10 years higher education institutions go through the reaccreditation process. For the last eighteen months and we have been in the formal part of that process and it will continue for another year and a half.  It requires that we think through the whole of our work—what we require of students, how we teach, how we support teaching and learning, whether we meet certain criteria, and most importantly what students learn, how well they achieve the “student learning outcomes” defined by the Fresno Pacific University Faculty. 

The process is designed to help each university in “continuous improvement” as an institution of teaching and learning. We are learning much about what we have accomplished and what we might want to try in the future. As you look through these pages, we hope you will learn something about the reaccreditation process and about the success students and professors experience at Fresno Pacific University.

 My thanks to our faculty, staff, and administration who have worked so diligently to gather data and documents, analyze results, and prepare reports. And thanks especially to  Linda Pryce-Sheehan, Associate Dean for Accreditation, and the Continuous Improvement Steering Committee for guiding the process and pulling together the work of multiple committees and efforts.

 Below you will find the schedule for the open sessions of the upcoming Capacity Team Visit.
