Preparing for an accreditation visit can be a very daunting process for leaders of programs that specifically serve the adult learner. Whether your adult-focused program is defined as accelerated, online, hybrid, or nontraditional, there are best practice approaches that have been developed to assist with accreditation preparation.
The Council for Accelerated Programs (CAP), an organization within CAEL, has developed a systematic approach that assists program leaders in preparing for upcoming accreditation visits. In cooperation with several accrediting bodies, and based on research performed in accelerated programs in higher education, CAP developed its Quality Standards for adult programs in higher education. These Standards provide a means for schools to self-evaluate, document and benchmark their programs and processes. Several institutions have already used this approach to not only prepare for accreditation, but to also enhance strategic planning and instill a continuous improvement mindset at their institutions.
Don’t miss this substantive and timely webinar that offers so much for any institution wanting to best prepare for an accreditation visit and improve their program offerings for adult learners. Bring your questions and thinking caps!
