Self-Study Report Manual and Template

The SSR Manual contains important information on preparing an effective Self-Study Report.

Online SSR Submission (JURA)
Beginning with the fall 2018 Site Visits, all programs will submit Self-Study Reports through JURA, an online accreditation management system. Programs will receive an email through JURA, approximately one year in advance, notifying them that the SSR is available for completion.

SSR Template through JURA
The SSR consists of the following four sections: Introduction; Preconditions to Accreditation; Accreditation Standards and Additional Information.

While the online system will allow users to upload any evidence within each criterion, there are certain instances where PAB documents must be uploaded or submitted separately. Download the following documents and upload to the appropriate sections within the JURA system.

1) Signatures and Contact Information – The hard-copy signature page should be mailed to PAB upon submission of the file SSR.
2) Student and Faculty Data – This excel document contains a number of tables, including student and faculty composition, enrollment and graduation data, and teaching FTE.
3) Curriculum Listing and Map
4) Faculty Abbreviated CVs Cover Sheet and Template – Abbreviated faculty CVs must be provided using the PAB template. The abbreviated CVs should be uploaded as one consolidated PDF with the cover sheet attached.
5) Course Syllabi Cover Sheet – Provide course syllabi for all courses required of students, specialization courses (if applicable), and electives. The syllabi should be provided in one consolidated PDF with the cover sheet attached.
6) Other Evidence Cover Sheet – This section accommodates uploads of any additional evidence that does not necessarily relate to a specific criterion. Other evidence should be meaningful and directly relate to the overall accreditation standards. Upload one consolidated document with the cover sheet attached.

JURA is a product that is still under development. This url will take you to the vendor website where you’ll find a growing list of user questions in lieu of an actual user manual.
