Look inside.

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
