A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:

We utilized an internal reviewer to complete the Pre-Submission Review process. Jesse Carswell was recently hired and served as an independent reviewer because she was not involved in the data collection process. Jesse used the provided template to go through each credit. Once complete, the review was turned in to Ben Kalscheur and he addressed comments and provided responses. Jesse went back through the report to ensure comments were addressed and re-returned the completed form to finish the review process.
