New mission, vision statements to guide planning for 2009 HLC visit
Bemidji State's new mission and vision statements, which were unveiled to the campus community in January, were a focal point of the March 27 Campus Conversation which served as the official campus-wide kickoff for planning efforts associated with the University's upcoming reaccreditation.
Telling the stories of the University will be a critical aspect of the reaccreditation process. The new mission and vision will help guide the development of these stories as the entire campus prepares for the Higher Learning Commission's site visit in November of 2009.
Participants in the conversation were asked to provide examples of daily activities that supported the mission and vision statements, and to develop ideas on how to promote the statements within the campus community.
The conversation attendees were also introduced to the 13-member HLC Steering Committee, which will be guiding the University's reaccreditation efforts.
Ten members of that steering committee also are co-chairing five criterion committees. These criterion committees will guide the University's efforts to successfully meet each of the criteria for successful reaccreditation: mission and integrity; preparing for the future; student learning, effective teaching; acquisition, discovery and application of knowledge; and engagement and service.
