A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

The Cal Poly Humboldt review team used the STARS 2.2 Review Template to complete the external audit of this STARS report. The team reviewed reporting fields, attachments, inventories, and URLs for consistency and gave their best attempt to confirm and check accuracy of included information. They submitted feedback for which credits should undergo revision and/or improvement, having identified any typos, broken web links, outliers, duplications, or areas that did not appear to meet their interpretation of STARS criteria.

Following their first review, they sent comments via the STARS 2.2 Review Template spreadsheet (attached). CSUCI personnel then responded to the first round of feedback, mitigating many of the concerns and making several updates to the report to better meet credit criteria or intention. Cal Poly Humboldt's team then completed a second review of the changed information to determine whether and how inconsistencies were addressed.
