ACE Report on Accreditation

From the recently-released American Council on Education (ACE) report, “Assuring Academic Quality in the 21st Century: Self-Regulation in a New Era,”

Voluntary accreditation has served higher education well in this

country for more than a century. But in an era of global competition

and increased demand for public accountability, we must ensure that

accreditation is more than adequately discharging its public responsibilities

and benefitting from the systematic review and attention that

will preserve the best of this historic approach.
