This week, the powers that be paid a visit to my two campuses.
Cue emoticon city Arizona: apprehension (that we'll be seen in our true light - sometimes a one off image can lodge in the brain); pride in our campuses; elation at showing off the great people at our workplace.
I love them (really) because an inspection means you see familiar surroundings with fresh eyes - a bit like showing someone around your home. You appreciate anew what you have!
They are also a great chance to get other's impressions of how we are doing and what we could do better.
In this case, this week, it was an excellent experience with valuable input from a hugely supportive team, and great preparation for an ERO visit that is scheduled for November.
