A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

Once the draft STARS report was complete, Xander Stultz reviewed all credits for which he had not collected information. Sam Crowl reviewed all credits for which Xander had collected information except for two credits, AC-6 and EN-6, which were reviewed by a third reviewer, Ryan Fogt, since both Xander and Sam had participated in data collection and analysis for those credits.

Once the review was completed by the reviewers, Elaine Goetz corrected any credits that required revision. The reviewers then verified that corrections met STARS requirements.

One credit, AC-9, did not meet requirements after the corrections, and was re-reviewed, re-corrected and then verified to meet STARS requirements.
