Sharing the PEV Perspective

This talk is designed for a prospective PEV who is interested in having as much information as possible on what the job really entails. The speaker has also received feedback that it is useful for representatives of institutions who have never gone through an ABET visit before, as it describes the visit process in detail. The presentation showcases an ABET visit from the perspective of a PEV, from the initial assignment to the campus visit and return home. Topics include communication with the rest of the team, tips for reviewing the materials prepared by the program and communicating with the program before the visit, required documentation, making travel arrangements, and what happens after arrival on campus. The importance of the team as the decision-making body and the support that the more experienced team members will provide are a focus of this talk.
