Dear UNO Campus Community, 

As you all know on December 6, 2011 the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools –Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) approved the transfer of UNO’s governance from the LSU System to the University of Louisiana System. The University of Louisiana System formally accepted UNO in December 8, 2011. As part of the governance transfer, SACS-COC will conduct an on-campus visit in August of this year. This on-campus visit will be a “mini” reaffirmation site visit. UNO will have to provide information to SACS-COC prior to the on-campus visit as we did during our last reaffirmation a few years ago. 

I have formed an oversight/coordinating committee, which I chair. This committee has already begun to work in preparation for the August visit. Two subcommittees have been formed with Dr. Susan Krantz chairing one, and Patricia Adams chairing the other. I ask that each and every one of you help in this effort. Many of you may be called upon to assist in the preparation for and during the on-campus visit. I fully expect that if you are called upon that you will agree to assist and work with all of us to ensure a successful result from the on-campus visit. UNO is our university and we all have a stake in its future and continued excellence. 

Thank you in advance for your help.
