January 2019
The School will initiate the process of the 2019 Self-Study and Action Plan. Details are available to staff, students and faculty on the Accreditation 2019 CLE site.

Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan is at the heart of the School. Strategic plan initiatives will be aligned with those of accreditation.
