The Accreditation Committee shall consist of a minimum of 12 members and shall consider the accreditation reports and other pertinent materials submitted in connection with the accreditation of an Academic Program. The Academic Program may be an Associate, Baccalaureate, or Master’s degree Program. After due deliberation, it shall recommend to the Board the accreditation, renewal, or reinstatement of accreditation for those academic Programs which have applied for and have been reviewed and which, in the opinion of the Accreditation Committee, have materially achieved the standards and criteria for accreditation.
The Accreditation Committee shall also recommend to the Board the denying, revoking, or suspension of accreditation when, in the opinion of the Accreditation Committee, the Program does not or has ceased to materially comply with the standards and criteria for accreditation established by ACCE.
The Accreditation Committee is also responsible for evaluating and making recommendations to the Board on the accreditation process.
A recommendation for accreditation requires a two-thirds affirmative vote of the full Accreditation Committee.
The Accreditation Committee will review and take whatever appropriate action it deems necessary in reviewing and approving interim Progress Reports from the academic Programs without Board approval.
