Please note that whatever we do vis a vis accreditation, it will be done
with the benefit of a lot of public comment between Monday and March 4. It
is the same public comment that the full board would hear if it were in
place. Most of the public comment I'm hearing definitely wants us to move
ahead, *with* public accountability.
