We're going up for accreditation by Middle States next year. They have been talking about it since I got here, and are setting up committees to address each aspect of the evaluation.
I got assigned to the committee I wanted, which is Student Support Services. I sit on the Student Affairs committee on campus and work with other support services offices around campus. So it's something I'm very interested in.
Furthermore, I was asked to co-chair the committee. I am flattered as I'm used to not being eligible for such stuff, or having the faculty forget that librarians are also faculty. I may be wishing I wasn't co-chair in the future, but I'm thrilled at the moment!
I wanted more involvement, and I'm certainly getting it.
