Many welcomed the information shared at breakout sessions on Flex Day.    |    If you would like to make comments or offer suggestions, save the Word document to your computer and make your comments and suggestions on that version. Email the document to Fran Leonard (LeonarFT@wlac.edu), Chair of the Accreditation Self Study Committee, no later than Friday, September 16.  If you would prefer to make your comments anonymously, print the document and put it in Fran Leonard's mailbox.
