Academic Quality Accreditation
Academic Quality Accreditation infuses the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of colleges and universities by providing an alternative process through which an already-accredited institution can improve its Academic Quality Accreditation. An institution demonstrates how it meets Academic Quality Accreditation standards and expectations through a sequence of events that align with the ongoing activities of an institution striving to improve its performance. Academic Quality Accreditation is structured around quality improvement principles and processes and involves a structured set of goal-setting, networking, and accountability activities. The criteria for Academic Quality Accreditation has several elements. An institution must be judged to have met each of the criteria to merit Academic Quality Accreditation. Sanctions may be applied if an affiliated institution is in jeopardy of not meeting one or more of the criteria. Institutions may provide other evidence they find relevant to their mission and activities. Some types of evidence may not be appropriate for all institutions; therefore, the absence of a specific type of evidence does not in and of itself mean that the institution fails to meet the Academic Quality Accreditation.
