Request for Your Comments on New Pathway for Reaffirmation

The Commission is requesting comments from the region on a draft proposal describing a new pathway for reaffirmation of accreditation that is a variant to the current review process. This new pathway, while as rigorous as the current institutional review process, will be a streamlined version of the Offsite Review and Accreditation Visit. A working group consisting of Commissioners and representatives from the region developed the pathway, called Themed Institutional Review for Reaffirmation. A copy of the proposal is available here.

Please send your comments to newpathway [at] by Monday, May 1, 2017. There will be an open meeting at the WSCUC ARC (Academic Resource Conference) in San Diego with members of the working group scheduled for Thursday, April 20, from 3:45 – 4:45 pm to discuss the proposal. All are welcome.
