Institutional reports serve as vehicles to promote institutional improvement. They also support the Commission in its role of assuring the public of the quality of the institution and higher education as an enterprise. Reports to the Commission are confidential. The Commission encourages institutions to make them widely available.
The Commission provides a variety of resources to member institutions, including an annual Assessment Forum, training workshops for institutions and peer evaluators, as well as periodic regional meetings on topics related to accreditation. In addition, Commission staff are available to answer questions, make campus presentations, or provide guidance to member institutions considering substantive changes.
