BSI Self-Assessment

The statewide Academic Senate required participating colleges to assess their own progress against 26 effective practices, outlined on the statewide Academic Senate webpage.  The state provided a series of questions and templates for each college to complete its own evaluation.

Using this framework, in Spring 2008 the BSI Team Leader's completed De Anza's Self-Assessment. Please read the Executive Summary or the entire Self-Assessment report.

Within this report, three main areas of focus emerged:

  1. Staff development
  2. Cultural competence
  3. Integration of current programs and services

These themes arise repeatedly throughout most of the 26 effective practices, sometimes often implicitly but sometimes explicitly.
