PA Week Kickoff – Oct. 6-12
National PA Week takes place each year from Oct. 6-12 to celebrate the profession and its contributions to the nation’s health. Before it was a weeklong event, National PA Day was first celebrated on Oct. 6, 1987, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the first graduating class of PAs from the Duke University PA Program. Oct. 6 is also the birthday of the profession’s founder, Eugene A. Stead, Jr., MD.
America’s more than 100,000 certified PAs are a powerful force for better health for millions of patients across the country. Consistently recognized as one of the fastest-growing professions, PAs are ranked the most promising job of 2015 by forbes.com. Because of PAs, the healthcare system is stronger. Because of PAs, more patients get access to high-quality, cost-effective care. Because of PAs, we celebrate National PA Week!
NEASC Visit Nov. 8-11
As most of you are aware, we are scheduled this semester for our ten-year, comprehensive evaluation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the body which accredits CSJ.
A NEASC team will be visiting campus from November 8-11 to conduct its evaluation. In preparation of that visit, the college has conducted an extensive self-study and submitted and Institutional Self Study report to NEASC. As has earlier been announced, there will be an open meeting to the entire College community on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 11 a.m. in Tuttle Hall Theater in order to discuss this upcoming visit.
The Institutional Self Study is available for viewing here. I would strongly encourage administrators, faculty, staff and students to review the Self Study prior to the meeting on October 21.
Likewise, I would urge administrators, faculty and staff to keep their schedules as open and flexible as possible for the dates of the visit (Nov. 8-11). Several of you will have scheduled interviews or have the opportunity to speak with the NEASC team in open forums. An itinerary of the visit is currently being prepared and will soon be shared with all of you.
Thank you for your attention to this very important matter, and for your tremendous help and cooperation as we have conducted the Self Study and prepared for the NEASC visit. Please let David Balfour know if you have any questions.

The Learning Center offers a paper editing service, which helps to increase student’s grades significantly by pre-editing for organization, mechanical and formatting errors, prior to deadline submission. The Learning Center has a direct email address where students can get their papers edited much faster, and by multiple editors. If you’d like your paper edited before it’s due, send them via Google shared docs to: email@example.com and we will address papers on a first come, first serve basis. Also, please be sure to check the tutor schedule board outside the Learning Center!
