Accreditation

The single most important asset of any college or university is accreditation. Accreditation signifies quality. It impacts the ability of an institution to recruit outstanding students, stellar faculty, and exceptional administrators. It also impacts its ability to ascend the college rankings, increase enrollments, generate revenues, and attract capital.

Some schools falter in the accreditation process, not because of objective shortcomings, but rather because of perceived shortcomings. These institutions actually succeed in meeting the high standards of accreditation. They just fail to clearly present themselves as “successful.”

Often, this failure stems from

  • Gaps in the assessment of learning
  • Self-assessments that fail to
    • Highlight the positive features of the institution
    • Adequately disclose its shortcomings
    • Propose effective remedial measures
    • Indicate a willingness to implement these measures
    • Disorganized, confusing, or unclear presentations to accreditors
    • Inconsistent, contradictory, or misleading information
    • Flawed analyses
    • Vague or misguided policies that weaken the case for accreditation
    • Poor planning for the accreditation visit
