Those bibliobloggers who are part of an academic institution understand the meaning of the word “Self-Study .”
Every ten years an academic institution must go through a process of re-accreditation. An academic institution must be accredited in order to grant degrees. The process of Self-Study requires that an institution evaluate its program to ascertain whether it meets the Standards and Criteria for accreditation.
Northern Seminary is going through a process of Self-Study and for the past two years, I have been directing this process. As the Director of the Self-Study, it is my responsibility to write the Self-Study Report, which I have been doing for the past several months.
Because of the pressing need to complete writing the report for the Self-Study, I will have to take a break from blogging for several weeks. For the past several months, I have been unable to write much, and what I have been able to write, has been minimal.
I may publish a post here and there during my time away from blogging, however, I cannot promise to publish on a regular schedule. I will return at the end of February, maybe at the beginning of March. Until then, I will be working hard to finish this project that has consumed much of my time.
I want to thank those readers who have read my blog, specially those who have written to me expressing support and offering encouragement.
As someone famous said, “I’ll be back.”
