Initial accreditation is validated by:

 A self-study and an onsite team of evaluators.

 Evaluators' report reviewed by a commission of educators.

How can you help?

 Do not see accreditation activities as a distraction from your teaching and research activities.

 Continue to assess program learning outcomes related to your course.

 Read the "ACBSP Accreditation" on the FEC website.

 Read the self-study draft and provide your your comments. Faculty involvement in improving instructional quality will show accreditors that faculty actually care about the quality of students’ experiences.

When an accreditation team comes to campus, each faculty member should feel as though he or she is the host.

Questions for discussion

Discussion: 1 hour

 Who are the stakeholders of FEC? What are the roles of different stakeholders in the quality process of FEC? In the process of accreditation, what do we, as a faculty, need from stakeholders and what do they need from us?

 What is the right benchmarking for each of FEC's programs?
