Accreditation Liaison is a very special role. For those of us who have served in these professionally-stretching roles, we know that the position comes with great challenges, complexity, and combined with another set of responsibilities (e.g., provost, head of institutional research, vp for student success, etc.).
Serving as the Accreditation Liaison is a critical role at each college or university. Only those that have walked in these shoes know the true scope of work. That’s why, IEHE has created the Accreditation Liaison Collaborative, created by accreditation liaisons for accreditations liaisons. The Accreditation Liaison Collaborative provides a national resource to support Accreditation Liaisons’ professional development, access to materials that improve the quality of an institution’s accreditation materials, and networks to other Accreditation Liaisons who have blazed trails.
The Accreditation Liaison Collaborative is open to higher education leaders who currently serve as an accreditation liaison for: institutional accreditation (formerly referred to as regional accreditation) or discipline-specific accreditation (e.g., business, teaching, nursing, etc.)
IEHE is pleased to announce that the National Survey of Accreditation Liaisons is underway.
The Accreditation Liaison role is a critical role in maintaining accreditation for the institution and for disciplines (e.g., business, teaching, nursing, etc.). Yet, very little is known about Accreditation Liaisons. No national survey exists to learn more about Accreditation Liaisons and their challenges, needs, and opportunities. Perhaps there hasn’t been a national survey developed yet because it takes the experience of those who have served in these dynamic Accreditation Liaison roles to create such a survey.
Meet the National Accreditation Liaison Survey Advisory Group. This experienced set of rock-star accreditation liaisons are blazing new trails and sharing their expertise with other Accreditation Liaisons. When the Accreditation Liaison role is strengthened — so too is the institution. We think about it as “high tides lift all boats.”
