Accreditation & Support Services

The Office of Accreditation & Support Services plays a vital role in the self-study process.  This office maintains and utilizes its resources to provide administrative support, evidentiary documentation, and advisement on final document preparation and eventual submission to all of the University's academic programs.  The Director sits on many of the self-study committees to guide the process, answer essential, recurring questions, and facilitate compilation of substantiating materials.  The office reviews all documents for consistency, style, and accuracy prior to the President's final review and approval.  In many cases, the office also integrates drafts, edits, and produces in its entirety the report submitted to the accrediting body.
