Collection: Employing Accreditation to Strengthen Planning and Drive Improvement

Accreditation holds far more potential for an organization's strategic and academic planning than most colleges and universities realize. This collection of SCUP resources includes an introduction to accreditation along with examples of how institutions intentionally employ accreditation at multiple levels to strengthen planning and drive improvement.
Abstract: Too often, colleges and universities treat accreditation as a series of compliance exercises: Do we have the right data? Have we submitted the correct documents? Are we ready for a site visit? But accreditation policies and procedures can do more for your institution . . . if they are aligned with integrated planning efforts.

This collection of SCUP resources can help you take the first steps towards leveraging the accreditation process as a driver of quality and strategy. It includes:
  • A brief primer on accreditation for those new to the process
  • Insights on connecting the dots between assessment, analytics, and accreditation at your institution
  • Reflections on quality assurance efforts in developing countries and what they mean for higher education worldwide
  • An example of how one institution used accreditation to supercharge efforts towards improving retention and graduation
  • A discussion of how makerspaces can satisfy certain accreditation standards
