Accreditation Steering Committee

The Accreditation Steering Committee (ASC) is a standing committee responsible for guiding the College through Accreditation processes.

The Accreditation Steering committee is responsible for organizing and coordinating the self-evaluation process and for ensuring that appropriate progress is made (including monitoring the work from the responsible parties). In addition, it is an important role of the committee to ensure that evidence is shared within the institution and that relevant internal stakeholders, who have knowledge of data and who can contribute to the analysis of data and evidence, are involved in the process as appropriate. 

There are a number of principles that support a successful self-evaluation process. It should:  

  • Address the Commission’s Standards and meet other Commission requirements 
  • Provide content and evidence for the Institutional Self-Evaluation Report
  • Include institution-set standards for student achievement and learning outcomes
  • Provide and analyze existing evaluation, planning, and improvement data
  • Lead to an assessment, based on analysis of data, of the quality of the institution’s programs and services and its institutional effectiveness as well as the formulation of plans and actions for improvement
  • Involve the institutional stakeholders who have a role in improving institutional quality
