  Full Accreditation granted with improvement opportunities in the following standards and criteria: Notes in Criteria 4.1e and 5.3.2.b.Basis for final decision: Performance expectations established by the programs are being met. The business programs meet the overall requirements for the six ACBSP standards. Note on Criterion 4.1e: ACBSP requires that assessment plans should be designed to yield formative and summative learning outcome assessment information and data. The business unit has an opportunity to develop a more consistent continual improvement process by developing and measuring formative assessment and having that information reviewed by regularly scheduled meetings of the faculty to determine strategies for improvement. The Commission looks forward to reviewing in future reports how formative assessment information is used and data to improve overall performance. Note on Criterion 5.3.2.b: ACBSP has historically required at least 80 percent of the undergraduate credit hours in business to be taught by academically or professionally qualified faculty and 40 percent of the undergraduate credit hours in business taught by academically qualified faculty (both full-time and part-time faculty). In the development of these measures, the faculty must be vetted against ACBSP’s qualification rubrics. The visiting team found that full-time faculty align with ACBSP AQ/PQ accreditation vetting standards.However, only three of thirteen (not all of the part-time faculty) are currently in compliance with the vetting standards. The business unit is aware of this issue and has a plan in place whereby all future part- time hires will be vetted to determine if ACBSP standards are met with a goal of the department to continue to expand its adjunct pool in the 2019-20 academic year to eliminate faculty full-time overloads. The Commission looks forward to reviewing in future reports how the requirements of Criterion 5.3.2.b are met.
