The Commission on the Accreditation of Programs in Applied and Clinical Sociology (CAPACS) will conduct a pre-conference Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) and Site Visit Team (SVT) Training Workshop at the 2019 AACS Annual Meeting in Portland, OR.
The workshop is intended for (1) new Commissioners who will be joining the CAPACS Board of Directors, (2) current Commissioners, as a "refresher" course, covering the CAPACS Accreditation Policies and Procedures, Accreditation Review Process Guidelines, Standards, and Self-study Guidelines and (3) members of AACS, and other professional sociologists, who are interested in participating on a CAPACS Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) or Site Visit Team (SVT) for reviewing higher education programs in applied, clinical, or engaged public sociology, and sociological practice. Those who complete the Commission’s training workshop also will be eligible to join the CAPACS Board of Directors at a future date.
Activities planned for the workshop include an interactive slideshow, large and small group discussion, and exercise. There is no fee for the workshop. Training materials will be furnished on-site. The pre-conference training workshop will be presented in two sessions: 1:00 – 2:50 pm (part 1), and 3:00 – 5:00 pm (part 2) on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
