  • Completing Our Self-Study in AEFIS

    The journey to our on-time submission of our Southern Association of Colleges and Schools – Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Fifth-year Interim Report began several years ago in 2016. After surviving a few cold, snowy winters in another state, I decided to leave my faculty position and to return to Texas where I accepted a data analyst position with Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) in Laredo, Texas, where the windy, hot, dry summers (I likened to being in a hairdryer on high heat) are just what my wife requested. Within a year at TAMIU, the President and Provost appointed me to serve as the Interim Associate Vice President for Institutional Assessment, Research, and Planning. While I have a lot of assessment experience, prior to this appointment, my institutional level experience was serving university assessment committees and writing the data analytics parts of a previous institution’s CAEP accreditation submission. My personal foray into direct work pertaining to SACSCOC had begun.

  • It is Uplifting When Excellence is Recognized and Awarded

    So why is this announcement so uplifting to me? I am not an IT person, nor am I an educational technologist. I am simply an end-user benefitting greatly from the transformative work that has been done in that arena. I have had the privilege of working with two of the award recipients: Mustafa Sualp, CEO of AEFIS, and Ozgur Yogurtcu, AEFIS Chief Technology Officer. While I cannot claim to understand how they make the magic happen, I have a deep appreciation for what drives them to do this work. I have witnessed first-hand their desire to support and improve the resources that facilitate quality in education.
