*Invitation to Reception with Accreditation Site Visit Team, Sunday,
September 17**:*

AVC Faculty, Staff and Students:-

I invite you to a reception we are hosting for the AVMA/CVMA Council on
Education (COE) site visit team (SVT) on *Sunday evening, September 17,
5:30 - 7:00 pm in the McCain Foundation Learning Commons*. It will be an
opportunity for you to meet the members of the accreditation site visit
team who will provide an overview of the accreditation process.

Accreditation is critically important to every veterinary college in North
America and, as you are aware, the AVC is having its regular review
from September
17-21.  During the site visit, there will be an extensive evaluation of the
College's facilities and programs.  Many of you have volunteered and/or
been asked to participate in various aspects of the site visit, and I thank
you for your time, effort and support.

The COE also places a high value on the engagement of DVM students in
research as part of the accreditation standards for veterinary programs. In
case you missed seeing the student posters from the Summer Research
Leadership Program, we will be showcasing them again on Sunday evening.

I hope to see you there!
