2011 Standards for Accreditation
The Standards for Accreditation are an articulation by the higher education community of what a college or university must do in order to deserve the public trust. They also function as a framework for institutional development and self-evaluation.
Covering eleven areas of institutional academic and administrative operations, the Standards are largely qualitative, in keeping with their need to apply to a variety of institutions with different missions.
Standard 1: Mission and Purposes
Standard 2: Planning and Evaluation
Standard 3: Organization and Governance
Standard 4: The Academic Program
Standard 5: Faculty
Standard 6: Students
Standard 7: Library and Other Information Resources
Standard 8: Physical and Technological Resources
Standard 9: Financial Resources
Standard 10: Public Disclosure
Standard 11: Integrity
