Gain a better education
Accreditation1 requires ensuring the curriculum meets a certain quality standard. You, as a student, benefit from the teaching practices and procedures that allow us to retain our accreditation1.
What benefit does accreditation1 serve?
While accreditation1 is a set of rigorous protocols and research-based processes for evaluating an institution’s organizational effectiveness, it is far more than that. Today accreditation1 examines the whole institution—the programs, the cultural context, the community of stakeholders—to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of students.
Accreditation1 is inextricably linked to institution and educational system improvement. The accreditation1 process asks institutions and systems to critically evaluate their vision, strategies, priorities, leadership, and programs and resources. The process of earning and maintaining accreditation1 provides institutions and educational systems with clear and compelling direction for implementing changes to move toward excellence.
