Accreditation Criteria

  • Restructuring Expectations Project, 2001-2003

    • Informed by new mission statement, “Serving the common good . . .”

    • Extensive participation from many constituencies

    • Criterion Five: “As called for by its mission, the organization identifies its constituencies and serves them in ways both value.”

APPLICATION


Peer reviewer analysis l.jpg

PEER REVIEWER ANALYSIS

  • Too many lists; too little evaluation

  • Often skimpy because good evidence was used elsewhere to prove other points

  • Institutions are missing the point of the Criterion: pervasiveness of engagement and service in institutional culture

  • Might be better understood if it came right after Criterion One

  • The place to talk about serving the “common good,” but the opportunity is missed


Important questions l.jpg

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

  • Can an institution be engaged and not have formal partnerships with other organizations?

  • Doesn’t effective service and engagement require more specialization within IHEs?

  • How do accountability and engagement differ?

  • Must every institution’s mission involve serving external constituencies?


Support and services l.jpg

SUPPORT AND SERVICES

  • Annual Meeting programming (Collected Papers)

  • Policy Center for the First Year of College: Special emphasis self-study

  • “Best Practice in Partnering: Developing Capacity” workshop
