The Office of Accreditation, Quality Assurance and Institutional Effectiveness provides oversight and support to policy and programs designed to promote within the College an understanding that assessment, quality assurance and continuous institutional improvement are the core of academic, administrative, student support, and operational planning.

In support of that function, the Office has established a cyclical monitoring and auditing function to ensure that recommendations and compliance requirements from the Middle States Commission and other external and internal review bodies are addressed, completed and fully documented. All departments, programs and offices responding to accrediting organizations and/or undergoing program reviews will be expected to consult with and seek guidance and support from this Office, and to receive approval prior to submission of their respective final reports.

The Office of Accreditation, Quality Assurance and Institutional Effectiveness will collaborate with the Office of Academic Affairs to standardize the College’s intentional interventions while strengthening the College’s ability to move to the next level as it fulfills its mission.
