Accreditation

 

Accrediting organizations set the academic standards by which their member institutions must comply. This quality assurance process is performed by private membership associations.

 

The Office of Assessment collaborates with academic schools to systematically engage in rigorous external accreditation processes to improve student learning and program design.
