Hello SW PULSE Community members!  

Have you considered doing a self-assessment of your department for the V&C Certification pilot program?  Our Certification group is looking to collect data on where folks are with respect to the PULSE V&C Rubrics.  Further, I think, if we capture a nice collection of data from the SW, we can begin a conversation about the kinds of workshops, conferences, etc., that would benefit the most schools in the SW region.  So, we urge you to please consider doing the survey: http://www.pulsecommunity.org/page/v-c-certification. (Go to the bottom where it says to request a link.)

THANKS!
